Add a little “farmhouse” to your Easter decor with simple Easter signs made with scrap wood.
This is not the first time I’ve made scrap wood signs. As a matter of fact, many themes, seasons and holiday have popped up in my craft room at one time or another. They are a great way to use up even the scrappiest scraps I have and my customers seem to really like them.
Taking Care of Business
My address has changed. There is now a hyphen between Restyled and Junk.
In June 2019, my original site was hacked and stolen, but I refuse to let the thieves win.
Every address on my old site has now been changed to this new address. Everything was backed up, but when moving to my new address, the last year of posts did not migrate well. With that in mind, I will be republishing those posts over the next year, as well as adding fun new projects.
If you have pins on Pinterest from my site (old address), please delete them from your boards and repin them with the new address.
If you are already a subscriber to my blog, Thank You for sticking with me and invite your friends.
If you are a new visitor to my blog I would love it if you would sign up to become a follower.
If you are a subscriber to my blog and didn’t get an email for this new post…well, that was intentional. At the present time we have turned off emails…I hope. As we are getting my blog going again we have had a few technical problems. It seems that my email service has been spamming my subscribers. Please know that is definitely not my intention. The goal is to send an email when new posts are published. Not sure why there have been multiple emails, but we are working on a fix. I have had several followers unsubscribe and for that I am very saddened, but I do understand. If you have stuck with me, I really appreciate the support. While organic traffic is nice, subscribers are what truly keep a blog going. Thank you for visiting. Look around, browse, get inspired and above all…Enjoy!
My Scrap Wood Signs From The Past
Easter Signs With Scrap Wood
While going shopping is not an option for most of us during the COVID-19 pandemic, this project can be achieved with whatever you have available.
For this batch of signs I used scrap boards I saved from an old dresser demolition. You could use old picture frames with glass or backing, sturdy gift boxes, trays, old cookie sheets, pie tins…even pieces of cardboard. Experiment and use what you have.
After cutting word stencils on my Silhouette, I measure the length of each one and write the size in the corner. This makes it easy to immediately know what length board I need for each word. You could also use your printer to create your stencil. Print on cardstock and use small scissors or a craft knife to cut out the letters. Refer to the links above of previous signs for info on bridges to hold inside of letters in place.
I dry brushed white over the front of each board.
To keep with the “farmhouse” look, I chose to paint my signs white with black lettering so they could also be used as everyday decor. Choose colors you have available and appeals to you.
Hangers were made by drilling holes, adding rusty baling wire and a bit of raffia. String, twine, jute, yarn, or a ripped fabric strip are all options for using what you got. Depending on what you found to use as your “board”, you may decide a hanger is not needed.
