We just moved into a new home recently, and I’ve been working hard to get all of my decor up! I’m finding a lot of bare walls though. Luckily, making signs is simple. Especially with the Walnut Hollow Framed Signs. I love these little ready to use signs and they take no time at all to customize and make cute for your home. I took the Pentagon sign, which looks like a home shape to me, and turned it into this cute sign that reflects our family so perfectly. I’m excited to share the tutorial and a free printable to make it super easy!

Using your Creative Woodburner, burn over the traced lines. I used the ball point tip on my wood burner for ease in tracing the curved lines of the hand-lettered text. Use slow and steady pressure and burn all of the lines into the wood. If you haven’t upgraded to the amazing Creative Woodburner yet, your Creative Versa-Tool would work too!
Once all your quote has been burned into the wood, you can add any colors you choose! You could stain the frame, and the LOVE letters, or you can do what I did, and paint them happy colors! Whichever style best fits your decor, it’s up to you.
Allow the paint to dry completely before you attach the hanging hardware of your choice to the back of your new home sign.
Hang your cute new sign up, or display it on a tabletop. I love the little bit of crazy in our loving home!
Is there a little bit of crazy with the love in your home too?
