Decorate your porch for the holiday season with this DIY hand painted JOY wooden porch sign!
I originally shared this porch sign when I posted about creating a winter porch theme for our home during House Fire Update #8.
- 2 x 1×4 @ 4 feet (I buy one piece and cut it in half to get two pieces)
- 1×2 @ 8 feet long furring strips
- 1/2 wood screws, flat head
- Dixie Belle Chalk Paint, Barn Red color
- Dixie Belle Chalk Paint, Drop Cloth color
- Paint brush
- Silhouette Cameo (and all the necessary supplies with it)
- Vinyl, glossy
Place the 1×4 boards next to each other. Evenly space the furring strips off the bottom and top. Screw into place.
Paint sign in desired colors. I love using Dixie Belle Chalk Paint! For this sign I painted the side that did not show the furring strips.
Create & Cut Your Design
I created my design in Silhouette Studio. I adjusted my page size to the size of my board.
I then cut my design on glossy vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo.
Transfer design to boards and paint.
Seal Your Sign
Once your design is complete and the paint is dry, you may choose to seal your sign. A great product for this is Dixie Belle Gator Hide. I personally don’t seal my outdoor signs because my porch is covered so my signs aren’t really exposed to the elements.
