"Welcome to the Porch" Sign

I love having a porch to welcome friends.
So I made a special sign saying so.


I took an old table top that I had laying around and printed
words on sticky vinyl with my Cricut.
Placed them along the black painted wood.
Sprayed with a gray primer because I like the color.
I took a long paint edger and glided it along the surface
while the paint was still wet.
Let it dry that way.
I removed the sticky vinyl words.
Gave it a good run over with the hand sander and 120 grit paper.
This is such a simple way to make word signs.
The space between the bench and star needed something.
Welcome Friends!
(relatives by appointment)
I gave my sister a sign that said that once - all of our family lives near her so they all laugh.
(even though she is serious - lol)
You can view the whole Christmas Porch by clicking here.
If you like the star it was easy to make - I show you how here.

Great sign and I really like the vignette. I have two wood stars, one big and one smaller, made from old snow fencing slats. Some of the pieces still have paint on them. I love hanging them on the fence in our backyard.

That turned out so cute! Love the one you made for your sister, too. Sometimes, although we love our relatives (we have to love them, right?) they are not people we would choose as friends. Sigh.
Your porch is adorable, and the sign fills that space in so nicely. Great job.
