White Christmas Dreams
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!!
Yep, I’m at it again!! Autumn Leaf Art and Burlap Christmas Tree.
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.
Then I printed my lettering on transfer paper. You can download the same lettering here for free. Using a craft stick I rubbed my lettering for the sign.
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?

…until April? I wish! We often get snow until the end of May. I never have to wish for a White Christmas, but I’ve always wondered what it’s like to have a warm (double digit) snowless Christmas.
Marie, you get and give different types of gifts when it’s 90 degrees at Christmas.
What a cute idea!…and very easy! Gonna give this one a go 😉
Yay! Tiffany, send my a picture if you do make one. I have several melting crayon snow projects planned to share.
Let’s see, I’m 54 and never have had a white Christmas. Sigh. So yes, I dream of having one. Like your sign…the oatmeal color is great for projects (but not cereal, lol).
Lol! I still can’t figure out how they came up with “oatmeal” for the name but I do like the color! I haven’t have many white Christmases, but do enjoy the few I’ve had. Wishing you a white Christmas someday!!!
Oh my that really looks like snow! Love it!!
Janet, thank you for stopping by! I have a few more “snow” crayons projects I’m working on to share!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT SIGN!! This south Florida girl has never seen snow and this sign is the perfect “dreaming of a white Christmas” decoration for me! You make it look so EASY!! Thanks Jeanette 🙂
Andi, snow is fun, cold, beautiful and magical. Specially if it melts in a few days!!!
