Create a colorful welcome DIY sign for the garden to greet friends and neighbors who visit your home!
Hi Darice friends, happy summer! It’s Lydi back from Lydi Out Loud and my craft project to-do’s have officially transitioned to all things outdoor for this time of year! I love finding simple crafts and DIYs that add some character and color to the yard and front of the house.
This wood welcome DIY garden sign couldn’t be easier to make. With an unfinished wood sign, some paint and the design of your choice, you can easily add some charm and hospitality to your yard!
Welcome DIY Garden Sign Supplies:
- Darice Wood Arrow Garden Stake
- Darice Paint Brush
- Outdoor Paint in the Colors of Your Choice
- Cutting Machine
- Welcome Cut File (feel free to use my cut file for Cricut here if you’d like to make your own stencil)
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
- EasyPress or Iron
Cut the Welcome cut file out of heat transfer vinyl (remember to reverse the image on your cutting machine software before cutting when using iron-on). I used a patterned iron on to disguise any variations in texture that may occur with a wood surface. Weed negative space away from design and position onto the garden sign.
Heat iron or EasyPress to medium-high heat and press for 15 seconds. Allow to cool completely before gently peeling away liner. If any of the lettering begins to lift with the lining, do not peel the liner and repeat pressing for another 10 – 15 seconds.
This beautiful DIY welcome sign planter is another wonderful accent to greet guests to your home.
