DIY: Wooden Welcome Sign

Who doesn't love a wooden sign right now!?!
Any event or wedding right now is incorporating some form of this trend.
 
 
So, when my family decided to host a house concert, I knew I wanted to add to our d├ęcor with a little rustic, wooden welcome sign. It just so happens that it turned out so well, we never took it down!


Materials:
 
 
- Wood (Whatever you can find lying around will work, the more rustic/worn the better for adding a little character)
- Sand paper
- Pencil
- Paint
- Metal stake
- Someone handy and their tools.
 
 
 
Methods:
 
 
- Get someone handy to cut your wood into your preferred shape.
I had my dad complete this step for me, so no advice on this one.
 
- Sand back the wood on one side to get a  nice smooth surface to work on.
 
- Use a pencil to draft the placement and size of your wording.
 
- Go over the pencil with the outdoor paint and allow to dry.
 
- Place stake firmly into ground.
 
- Have your someone handy attach wood to stake.
 
- Stand back and admire your (and your someone handys) work!
