Welcome to our Home -
A Super Easy & FUN DIY Project
Do you like to get crafty?? It's starting to feel like fall and its made me get into craft mode even more than I normally am! I've been wanting to add a front porch sign to our house for a while, but was waiting until we had somewhat of a yard put in so I didn't have dirt blowing all over my decorations. Well it finally happened!! We have grass and I made a super easy and fun front porch sign! I've had a few people ask about it so I thought I'd share it with everyone!! I've turned my project into a DIY kit so you can have just as much fun making it as I did with just 4 easy steps!
What you will need:
- An 11" x 48" board. I used a pinewood board from Home Depot, You should be able to find a board this size at any lumbar/hardware store.
- Hand Sander or Sandpaper
-Stain and/or Paint - The color of your choice
-1 small nail & a hammer
-Garland strand of flowers or greenery - your choice
-DIY Welcome to our Home Letters Kit
The first step is to sand & stain your board. I used my hand sander. It doesn't take long, just a quick sanding to make the board feel smooth and to get rid of any rough edges that might give slivers. After your board feels smooth, you can stain or paint it the color of your choice. I used Varathane Dark Walnut stain for my board.
While the board is drying you can paint your letters from the Welcome to our Home kit.
I use MDF wood and cut these letters with our laser. I sand the edges before sending them so they are ready for you to paint. I used 2 coats of white spray paint for my sign.
Now, while your letters are drying you can put together your wreath.
This is my favorite part of this project. I wanted to make a sign that I could decorate for all the different seasons/holidays. This wreath allows you to change up your front porch decor with a quick swap. Since, we are just heading into fall I chose a colorful garland strand from Joann's. I like to use these types of strands when decorating my wreaths because it is so easy! I just lay the garland on top of the wreath and tie some burlap around it to secure in on. When this fall season is over, I can just cut the burlap and tie a new garland stand on to match the new season!
Below are a few ideas - Fall, Halloween, & Any Season
Once your board & letters are dry you can start putting them together. Lay them out on your board and get a measurement of where you would like them to be. I used a pencil to mark them out & gorilla wood glue to glue them on. Next, I used a hammer to put in a small nail where I wanted my wreath to hang. I let my glue dry for about 45 minutes before putting it all together and out on my front porch.
This was such a fun and super easy project! Below is a link to find the Welcome to our Home DIY kit. I hope you have just as much fun making and styling your front porch as I did with this cute sign!
