Homemade Bride — DIY Farm Sign

 

Hello DIYers,

Today we’re sharing steps and materials for making your own wooden farm signs!

First, here are some of our favorite quotes we have around the house:

“Today is a good day, to have a good day”

“Bless this mess”

“Be Still”

“Happiness is Handmade”

Materials:

  • Plywood
  • 1×2″ Poplar Wood
  • White Paint
  • Black Craft Paint
  • Wood Stain
  • Paint Brushes
  • Carpenters Glue
  • Pencil
  • Soft Eraser
  • Twine
  • Scissors

Steps:

  • Purchase plywood 1×2’s and get it cut at the store based on the desired size (home depot)
  • ¬†Stain poplar beams for the frame
  • Paint the plywood white
  • Once dry, sketch your quote onto the plywood in pencil
  • Using the craft paint, paint the quote and let dry
  • Erase any uncovered pencil marks lightly
  • Using the carpenters glue, put an even line around the plywood sign
  • Stand up for 1×2″ beams around the plywood to create the frame
  • Now for my favorite trick, you need to clamp the frame down long enough to let the glue dry. Wrap a string of twine around the frame and tie tightly to keep the wood in place

 

 

Have fun with this one! I made one and now I can’t stop!
