I saw the sign on Pinterest originally, and the pin linked back here. It appears the original sign was painted on a 1/2" thick pine board, with some distressing.
I will be making my sign on 1/2" plywood, and using vinyl lettering instead. But, I think the end result will be roughly the same.
I used my handy, dandy Silhouette cutter and cut out all of the lettering. Unlike my last project, I did all the words separately in order to not waste so much vinyl. This lettering was going to be large enough to piece together with reasonable accuracy.
Here it is about halfway through. There was lots of measuring involved in this sign, so it took a lot longer to finish!
And, here it is all finished! I still have to complete the one for my Mom, but I am pretty stoked to have a new Christmas decoration and it is only January! ;)
