For my welcome sign, I used things my family and I had collected over the years. I'm into beadwork and hearts, hubby is into running, my son is into reptiles and amphibians, and we're "all" into dogs! I attached the items to the sign with eye screws and nails.

I used a small, inexpensive "shelf" bought at a craft store ($2.99) for my sign, but any piece of wood could be used.

I am big on nature. I took one long branch, a shorter branch, scrap wood, and made a welcome sign. I screwed the branches together. I put a screw(or nail) in top of the sign, wrapped copper wire around top screws.

I tied the copper wire around shorter branch to the length I wanted and there is my sign. The scrap wood is the back of a wooden chair, I just used markers to write "Welcome Friends" and put 3-4 coats of poly on it.

You can buy the wooden shaped block at Wally World or any craft store. You can also by small Balsa wood letters, rub on decorations (or scrapbook stickers work too), and liquid Polyurethane at the craft store.

Sand the whole thing to make sure there are no splinters &/or rough spots. Apply the letters with your favorite crafting glue. Next apply the rub ons (or scrapbook stickers) to your tastes. Finish by applying the Polyurethane. I usually apply 2 or 3 coats, depending on how shiny/rough I want it to look. Make sure to let each coat dry thoroughly before applying the next one.

I have lots of pictures of different signs I've found on the internet, if you would like to see them email me at: buddysbaby143 @ hotmail . com.

Hope this helps you! God Bless,
