Easy Hello Welcome Sign

We love signs.  We love paint and wood and saws and designing, everything to do with sign making.  Some of you may not know this but we’ve been making signs for over 6 years now.  We used to go by Lolly Jane Boutique and have shifted from selling signs and vinyl lettering to showing off sign how-to’s and way more on this ol’ blog of ours.  In honor of our obsession, we wanted to show off some different signs you can display in and out of your house all week long!  Today’s sign is an easy hello welcome sign, what a perfect way to greet your visitors!

This welcome sign is super easy to make.  Take an old frame, secure a lightweight piece of wood in place of glass inside.  Paint the sides black and lightly sand to created a distressed look.  Paint the middle white and apply your vinyl lettering stencil [technique here].  Paint the top letter black and your phrase underneath yellow [or your personal coordinating colors].  Lightly sand for a vintage feel.

Really easy right?  We’ll be showing off these types of signs all week, different parts of your house just to show you how diverse and fun signs can be!

Do you spy that little white framed printable?  Even a silly No Soliciting sign can be attractive!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another darling sign idea-this time indoors!

      Hey, the blog is new. I have to agree with Randi. Really cute sign, dish on the font for hello. The color and font make it friendly, if that makes sense.

    I like this idea. It’s a cute way to simply say, “Hello.” I think this would be the perfect touch to make my office at Dish more inviting. Plus, I love any project with instructions that can be summed up in one paragraph! Most DIY stuff has so many steps to them that it gets overwhelming. I always end up getting my project ideas recorded from HGTV or DIY Network so if it is labor-intensive, I can just pause and rewind to follow along. Luckily, I have the Hopper DVR with heaps of recording space to accommodate all the projects I aspire to do! This one has crept its way up to the top of my list. I might just make one for my home too, but I better wait to see how well the first one turns out. I hope I can pull it off as well as you did!
