DIY White Picket Fence Sign

Now that we have carpet installed, I am busily working on all the decorations for Rachel’s new room. I made this White Picket Fence Sign to hang in her reading nook. It was so much fun to make, and I love it so much, that I almost changed it to use for my own space. Wouldn’t it be great in a craft room with the words “create” on the bottom? Or on a front door with “hello”?

Lucky for Rachel, I let her keep this sign. :) If you’d like to make one (or two) of your own, just follow the tutorial below.

DIY White Picket Fence Sign with Wreath

Supplies:

-Boards (I used 1/4″ thick poplar boards that are 3″ wide. I got them at Lowe’s.)
-Krazy Glue Craft Gel
-Wooden Knob
-Sandpaper
-Chipboard letters
-Paint and paintbrush
-Sawtooth picture hanger
-Hammer, nails, pencil
-Wreath (buy or make one)
-Saw (optional- You can have your boards cut to size at the lumber store if you prefer.)

Instructions:

1- If you didn’t get your boards cut at the store where you bought them, cut them to size. My vertical pieces are 18 1/2″ long, and my horizontal pieces are 16″ long. You can use any size you like! Paint or stain them.

Since you will be working with Krazy Glue, it’s a good idea to cover your workspace. I used an old sheet.How To Make a White Picket Fence Sign4-Use a pencil to mark the edge of the top board. Then lift it off and add Krazy Glue to the slats underneath.White Slat Sign with Wreath5-Place the horizontal board on top of the glue, and press down firmly for 30-60 seconds. Then repeat for the other end of the sign.Wood Slat Sign Tutorial6- Paint your knob and your chipboard letters in the color of your choice. I used latex paint, but acrylic craft paint would be just fine.Picket Fence Home Decor Sign7- While the paint is drying, attach a picture hanger to the back of your sign. Trust me, it’s much easier to do before you attach the knob to the front. I may or may not have learned that in a previous project. ;)White Wood Slat Sign Tutorial8- After the paint is dry, attach the knob to the top slat using a bit of Krazy Glue. Hold in place for 30 seconds.White Picket Fence Sign with Krazy Glue9-Attach your letters to the bottom slat, again using just a bit of Krazy Glue. It holds really well, and you don’t want to use too much or it seeps out underneath.White Slat Sign TutorialLooks pretty cute already, doesn’t it?

DIY Picket Fence SignNow all you have to do is hang a wreath.  I made a simple ruffle wreath, and it is just perfect for my daughter’s room!

How To Make a Picket Fence SignThis is the first time I have ever used Krazy Glue Craft Gel for a craft project, and I actually really liked it, especially because it dries super fast, and it dries clear. It comes in a larger tube, so you can work on larger projects without running out.  I also love that the lid just snaps on rather than screwing on, because it doesn’t get stuck on!
