Hack these Target signs for easy last minute Christmas gifts!

If you’ve been to Target lately, you might have noticed these little guys hanging around in the Dollar Spot.

(Hanging… get it? I’m hilarious.)

My friend sent me a picture about a month ago that sparked some inspiration in my little creative mind parts. “Why not add some flowers to that little Joy sign at Target?” she says. And I says back, “Why, yes, I think I shall!”

I bought a few of those and added some felt flower flair to them (naaaaaaturally) and a few touches of Christmas cheer — here’s how the first batch turned out:

After posting it to Facebook and asking my local friends if they’d be interested in them, I somehow ended the night with more orders and was planning my shopping list to get more supplies. WUT. That was totally unexpected!

For the next batch, I had Justin cut and stain some wood and we bought some copper wire from the hardware store to see if I could do it myself. It took practice, but I think I’m getting better at all that bendy business.

Pro tip: It helps to watch uber cheesy Hallmark movies as you are crafting. I think I watched like 15 over the course of a week when I was making all these, ha!

After the second batch was done and delivered to my sweet customers, I had yet another round of orders come in — again, much to my surprise and delight!

All in all, I think I’ve made somewhere close to 20 of these signs, which quite seriously helped fund our Christmas shopping this year. I still can’t even believe how quickly that little Target sign hack turned into such a blessing.

All that to say — snatch those puppies up before they’re gone! Then use your many crafty talents to spruce them up a bit and voila! Christmas presents. ;)

Edited to add:

If there aren’t any “Joy” signs left at your store, you can still use the wood backing from the “Merry”, “Peace” or “Noel” signs… I tried it out and it’s pretty easy to pull out the words and replace them with your own words or names using floral or thin copper wire. Have fun!
