Have you seen those tall wooden welcome signs on people’s front porches but been intimidated on how to make one? I created an easy and inexpensive DIY Front Porch Welcome Sign that I wanted to share with all of you!
We had some scrap wood at home from re-roofing our gazebo. It’s an inexpensive underlayment wood. I explained what I was creating to my husband and he helped me cut the wood into a long tall board.
I sanded down the edges with a sanding block I had on hand.
I stained the wood with Folk Art Wood Tint in the color Walnut. It’s water based, goes on easy, dries fast.
While the board was drying, I painted wooden welcome sign letters I got from the target dollar spot with Folk Art Wood Tint in the color Cascade.
Once both the board and the letters were dry, I used Elmer’s Wood Glue to adhere the letters to the wood board.
I was lucky that I had the wood, wood tint, and glue all on hand. I had purchased the welcome letters last fall knowing they would be great for something – and who can beat the price at the Target dollar spot?
Once the sign was dry, I put it on my front porch for display.
