Need a last minute craft idea to dress up your front porch for the Holidays? This project is versatile, dramatic, and simple. My talented friend, Amanda Malnar, came up with the idea for this adorable sign, and I think you will absolutely love it.
I used a 1 by 10 common board and cut it to 6 feet tall.
You can use any wood stain or paint color you like. I chose a weathered gray so it would coordinate well with the brick on the exterior of my home. But you can skip this step altogether if you prefer the look of natural wood.
If you do choose to use stain, brush on one coat and wipe clean with a rag. This will allow the natural grain of the wood to shine through.
I just printed letters on plain computer paper. Then I cut them out, placed them evenly, and traced around them.
Next, I used a small paint brush and a creamy paint color to fill in the letters.
