Happy Friday folks!
Tomorrow is my niece’s first birthday party & we’re throwing her a woodland affair! I am up to my eyeballs in party stuff & can’t wait to share it all with you next week! It’s going to be the perfect inspo for fall…but in the meantime, I’m sharing this simple porch sign!
I’ve been making these & selling them in my booth like crazy lately. Everyone loves them & I’ve officially decided I need one for my home! So you probably need one too!
All you need is a wooden board- I get mine from Home Depot on the aisle of “common boards.” It measures approximately 12″ x 4′ & is perfect for this sign project. Start by staining the wood in your favorite color. I stick to dark, rich colored stains.
Next you’ll need to cut your letters- H, W, D, Y- out of white vinyl with an electronic cutting machine. Mine are about 10″ wide & however long. I use the free Cricut font, American Typewriter in all caps.
Once your board is stained & dry & your letters are cut & weeded, it’s time to stick! You have 2 options here- You can use the negative space from the vinyl to create a stencil to paint or just stick the vinyl straight onto the board. I have done both & prefer simply sticking on the vinyl. It’s a million times faster & looks nice, in my opinion.
Before you add on your letters, lay them out on the board along with the “o” wreath & space them out as evenly as possible. Then stick & secure down! My wreath is a mini size from Hobby Lobby in the fall department. It’s the perfect size to fit onto my board. It’s also 90% off, so it’s only $6! WIN!
Of course, you can spell out so many welcoming words & hellos! I definitely recommend something with an “o” though so you can use a cute wreath! Leave this out year-round & update mini wreath for different holidays! Replace the cotton with an evergreen wreath in the winter!
Don’t Forget to Pin it for Later!—>
