~Merry Christmas sign~{DIY}

A few of you have asked for a tutorial on my Merry Christmas sign I made for

I had an old sign that I painted over with cream paint.
Here is the before.

I have a sort of obsession for typography, so whenever I am at thrift stores and see letters or numbers, I snag them up.
Even if they aren't the right finish, it's perfect for this sort of project.

After the paint was dry I just started gluing on the letters to spell out Merry Christmas.
A couple of the letters I didn't have, so I used some blocks of wood to paint the letter on.

And that's it.
Let it dry and hang.
 I love the look of the different lettering.

Love this. Great idea. The sign that was there before, did you make it? I've been looking for a way to make typography signs like that, but I can't find a way.

Cute sign. Great idea about collecting thrift lettering. Mental note to self!

I really love the "old" sign you show in the first photo. Are there other photos that show this "before" sign before you painted over it?
