DIY Decorative Wall Signs and Plaques For Wall Décor

How to Make Easy Decorative DIY Wall  Signs

But with all of the signs I’ve made, somehow, I haven’t ever shared a complete start-to-finish tutorial with all of my best tips and tricks for making beautiful DIY wood signs; all you need are a few inexpensive supplies and a bit of know-how.


The materials you need will depend somewhat on which sign-painting method you choose, but this list will get you started.

  • Wood sign base – I like to make signs from plain 3/4″ birch plywood. You can buy this pretty inexpensively at your local home improvement store. Craft stores also sell many pre-cut blank signs in various styles and sizes.
  • Paint for the background of your sign – Any paint will work for this, including small craft paints, paint samples, and chalk paint.
  • Small foam paint roller or a paintbrush 
  • Sharpie oil-based paint pens are one of my top tricks for making beautiful signs.
  •  1″x2″ pine boards for making the wood frame.
  • Wood stain for the frame.

Thank you for joining Lucy and me today. Hope to see you next time.
