DIY FRONT PORCH WELCOME SIGN

This post may contain affiliate links.

Hey Guys! I’m sure we have all seen these DIY front porch “Welcome” signs, so today I’m going to show you how to make them! It’s really easy and SUPER inexpensive ‘Welcome’ Porch Sign. This project only cost me $3 to make and I bet you have all the materials on hand to make them!

You will need:

White acrylic paint
Paintbrushes
Board (I’m using .75″ x 9.25″ x 6′ )
Stain (I used this one)
Pencil
I would also recommend using this sealer for it

Directions:

Stain your board and allow to dry completely

I used an 8 x 10 template from Picmonkey and made my letters as big as I could on each sheet of paper, printed them off on regular print paper.

I cut the excess paper around the letters off and laid the letter out about 2″ apart from each other

I used a really sharp pencil and outlined the letters onto the wood

When you lift up your paper, you will see that it basically carved the wood

I outlined the carving with paper, then painted it with white acrylic paint

Seal it with a protective coat

It does take some patience, and a couple coats of paint, but I made this for THREE DOLLARS! I love the way it looks! Are you going to make one? I would love to see your projects, so don’t be shy, share them in the comments below!
