Hello there makers! We are quickly approaching Christmas…are you ready?! Today I thought I’d share another Christmas decor craft with y’all, and since I’m on that buffalo plaid kick… it’s bound to have some in there! If you’ve followed me for a bit, then you know I run a handmade wooden sign shop and have for almost 7 years. One of my favorite things to make is wooden signs! Check out my Buffalo Plaid Wooden Sign!
I really love how it turned out! I placed it right in the entry way so that our visitors see it right when they walk in. Want to make your own? Here’s what you’ll need:
- cut and sanded piece of (ply) wood (mine was 11×13)
- cut and sanded furring strip (enough to frame your sign)
- buffalo plaid welcome (from Michael’s)
- buffalo plaid deer (from Target)
- E3600 heavy duty glue
- nail gun/nails
First you want to get your sign ready. Cut and sand all wood needed for the project. *If you don’t have power tools on hand, you can ask your local Home Depot or Lowe’s to cut the wood for your for a small cost.
Next, paint your sign and stain your frame. Allow dry time and lightly sand with a sanding block when dry. Coat the frame in sealer (this can be wax or a clear coat of spray paint).
Then, using your nail gun, attach the furring strips to the outside of your sign to frame it all in.
The tough parts are done! Use your heavy duty glue to adhere the Welcome and deer to the wood.
Tada! You can attach a hook to the back if you want to hang it up on a wall. Otherwise, it sits nicely on flat surfaces like tables, shelves, mantles, etc.
If you liked this project, you would love the Buffalo Plaid Glitter Deer Head I just made and my new winter wreath!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great rest of your weekend.
