DIY Floral Home Sign Using Transfers and Stencils

Painting pieces of wood of all shapes and sizes makes me happy. Painting pieces of wood that are shaped like a house makes me even happier. Slapping a stencil on that wood with a pretty floral transfer… well, that is what you call being on CLOUD 9. Y’all. I am on Cloud 9 for sure with this craft. Using leftover pieces of a Prima Floral Transfer to make it even more special, has my heart going pitter-patter.

This DIY craft using transfers is simple. It goes to show that nothing ever should go to waste. Save those old pieces of wood, no matter the shape or size. You guys it is possible to craft with the unused parts of transfers and scrapbook paper. The possibilities are endless. You can truly turn those scraps into something AMAZING!! Mix and match those paint colors to accent your home or office. This craft is just so versatile based on whatever you choose to use.

Just follow the steps below and have some fun! Few questions though. Are you keeping this for yourself? Are you making one for your neighbor? What about your niece who just got married? Doesn’t she need one in her home?

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Grab your home-shaped piece of wood.
  2. Paint your wood sign covering it with a base coat, preferably chalk based paint –  color of your choosing. Don’t forget to do the sides. It doesn’t have to be a thick coat because we will distress the boards.
  3. Dry completely with a heat gun/dryer to speed up the process. 
  4. Touch up any spots that you may have missed.
  5. With your leftover piece of floral transfer, or new piece. Whatever… just get a cute floral transfer. Determine the pieces you want to use on your board by moving them around before committing. Remember to keep the backing on your transfers until you are ready to apply them to your project. 
  6. Lay your transfer down on your wood up on the rooftop. Press it down firmly using your plastic tool that came in your transfer kit. If you ever have a bubble, just carefully pull it up and try again. 
  7. With your sanding block, lightly rub the edges to remove any excess off sides of the wood sign. 
  8. Apply transfers, remembering to leave enough space for your stencil so it rests only on the wood. 
  9. Grab your HOME stencil and your finger daubers. With dark brown acrylic paint, begin to lightly tap your small amount of paint. Pushing lightly and using small amounts of paint is this trick to not having your stencils bleed through on the board. 
  10. When finished with paint, set aside to dry. Or, use a heat gun or hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
  11. If you feel your sign needs a little more, feel free to add some twine, jute, string, or even ribbon of your liking, and unravel a bit so you have some to wrap easily. Apply a thin line of hot glue to start your wrapping, to help it stay in place. Wrap around several times to make it thick. Cut and hot glue the end to secure. I personally am using mine as is!
  12. Last but not least, enjoy your simple DIY Floral Home Sign, anywhere you decide to put it.
