Home sweet home! Is there anything better than walking through those doors and being HOME at the end of a workday? Home has so many seasons of décor. In summer it can have everything from Independence Day to pineapples and popsicles. In winter its snowflakes and Christmas. What better way to accommodate all of those seasons and holidays than to create an interchangeable sign. Plus, I have been looking forward to a reason to use a scroll saw and this is a perfect opportunity for the unique shaped O in home or welcome!
- Pine Board (5 ½ inches x 3 ½ ft or 5 ft)
- CraftSmart Gel Stain: Walnut, White
- Permanent Vinyl Sheet: White, Black
- Scrap Wood
- Assorted Paint
- Foam Brush
- Cricut Machine
- Scroll Saw
Begin by staining the pine board as desired with either the walnut or white gel stain using the foam brush.
While the board dries, begin to design the letters. For the HOME sign, the font was Arial Black. Make sure that the letters are the correct size before cutting. For both signs we made the letters 5 inches wide and 7 inches tall.
Place the letters onto the board, carefully spacing them out evenly.
Sketch the outline of the O object replacement onto the scrap wood. The paint makes it come to life so don’t get too hung up on the cutout itself. Carefully cut the wood out using a scroll saw and paint it as desired.
To attach the wood piece to the pine board, apply one side of the Velcro to the wooden cutout and one to the pine board itself.
Lean against the front door and enjoy the greeting when you get home everyday!
These are the first adjustable shapes we have made, what shape should we do for fall? I’m thinking a leaf or a pumpkin!
