Hello friends, I hope your Summer is kicking off to a great start! I’ve been super busy here working in the yard, planting flowers and just getting my outside area ready for Summer. One area I really wanted to spruce up was my front steps. So the easiest place to start was a DIY welcome sign. Then I can start painting and adding all my other stuff.
I ordered this wall planter a couple months ago and I didn’t have a specific project in mind. I just thought it was really pretty and had to have it. After getting some ideas together for my front steps, I came across some DIY welcome signs. Then BOOM, I got inspired! I knew what my front steps needed was a pretty welcome sign with a rustic planter. So let’s get started!
DIY WELCOME SIGN & PLANTER SUPPLIES:
- Darice Rectangular Wall Planter
- Darice DIY Wood Pallet Sign
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
- Transfer Paper
- Darice Foam Brush
- Foam Sheet
- Weeding Tool
- Darice Peony Long Stems
Step 3. Now it’s time to cut your saying!! Woohoo! I found this AMAZING saying in the Silhouette library that I had to use for my DIY welcome sign. I weeded the saying with my “handy dandy” weeding tool and then used transfer paper to add it to my pallet.
Step 4. Let’s add our beautiful flowers! It was a back and fourth, should I use real flowers or fake ones for this project since it was going to be outside. But in the end I had these peonies that I got from Darcie awhile back and they were perfect! I added a little foam to the bottom, which I had on hand. It made it a lot easier to keep the flowers in place. Plus during the holidays I can change the flowers out.
Step 5. Now this is my favorite step. Adding the Command Strips! Any projects I can hang up with a Command Strip I will. Since this project will be going outside on the porch the Command Strips will work great. You can add this DIY welcome sign to your front door, wall, etc. Whatever works best for you!
See how simple that was to make and it’s going to be perfect hanging on your front porch. If you wanted to take it a step further you can add your house numbers to the front of the planter box with vinyl.
Or if you make this project I would LOVE to see pictures!
This farmhouse wreath DIY window decoration would make for a charming front porch addition as well!
