DIY Dollar Store Merry Sign

Make Time: 15 minutes

Cost: $2-3 

Difficulty Level: Easy – Moderate

Materials Needed:

  • Dollar Store Round Mirror
  • Dollar Store Christmas Foliage
  • Hot Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Acrylic Paint Marker

I love simple and quick Christmas crafts, and since all the materials are from the Dollar Store, this is inexpensive decor too!! YAY! I literally made this in under ten minutes, and that included the time to take pictures. I probably should have put more thought into the lettering, but I decided to just wing it instead. I might be a bit impulsive sometimes and as long as I don’t end up preggo or having eating an entire batch of cookies, I’ll consider it a win. LOL

To start, wipe your mirror clean with some rubbing alcohol and a lint free cloth. This will help the paint stick better.

Then use a paint marker to pen your design. You could also use glass paint markers but no one is going to be eating off your decor and likely you won’t be scrubbing it, so use what you have. Whatever type you use, just make sure it is fully opaque.


Go back and thicken any downstrokes for a faux-calligraphy look. Also, before the paint dries, clean up any lines or areas that need a touch more paint.

Grab your foliage and cut it into small, workable pieces. I mean, I guess you can use it as is, but I feel like this is where you end up with tacky decor your Aunt Patty would like. I mean, not MY Aunt Pat, she’s a bad ass!

Once the paint is dry, or if you are feeling invincible, glue the foliage to the mirror with hot glue, and LOT OF IT!

Add a little ribbon and BOOM, you’ve got yourself some new DIY Christmas Decor!
