Do you dream of a white Christmas or….dread a white Christmas?
Since I’ve spent most of my adult life in the brown dreary desert…I dream of soft fluffy snowy white Christmases.
If you’re reading this with bits of snow that will last until April…I have a sign for you!!
White Christmas Dreams
This DIY sign could be a tribute to old melting snow. Snow that’s been around for months.
But let’s not go there.

I started with a scrap piece of 12″ board. The piece is 11 inches long. I’m loving the oatmeal color of chalk based paint in Wal-mart. If I made oatmeal and it was this color in my breakfast bowl…
I’d toss it down the garbage disposal!!
But it DIY projects, it’s a great color!!
I found 12 count boxes of one color crayons on Amazon! The crayons are the larger size. Like what toddlers use. 🙂
I chopped up 4 large crayons with an old chefs knife.
Then I sprinkled the chopped crayon along the top edge. Using a craft heat gun, I melted the crayon letting some of the crayons sprinkle down the wood.
A few more crayon bits to melt and….
I’ll still be dreaming of a white Christmas in Arizona.
Although as I writing this a week before Thanksgiving, I watching snow melt outside my window. 😀
I did find out melting crayons stick to wood as will as burlap.
Will you have a white Christmas?
