Cheerful Hello Spring Plaque

Hello, Pretty Handy readers! It is Anika from Anika’s DIY Life here with a fun new project to get your home’s decor ready for spring!

While we are impatiently waiting for spring, I thought we could create a colorful plaque to welcome spring with open arms. I love creating seasonal decor, but don’t like spending too much money (as it gets changed out too often.)

This simple and cheerful spring sign is made from scrap wood and the only thing I had to buy were the flowers!

Instructions:

Step 1 – Cut out your wood shape from scrap wood. I cut a pentagon shape, but feel free to buy your own pre-cut shapes.

Step 2 – Paint the plaque in a base color of your choice. I chose [amazon_textlink asin=’B018HBN2OE’ text=’Americana Decor Chalky finish paint in Refreshing.’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’prett-wp-001-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d466e4bf-272b-11e8-b3c4-9bb32c38ba1e’]

Step 3 – Transfer the “Hello Spring!” onto the wood shape using transfer paper. To make it easy, here is a free printable available for you to print out and trace.

Step 4 – Paint the letters using a fine tipped round brush.

Step 3 – Attach sawtooth hangers to the back of the wood shape and thread ribbon through them. (If you don’t have hangers, you could staple the ribbon to the wood (just make sure your ribbon is strong enough to hold the plaque and your staples are strong enough to hold both the ribbon and plaque.)

Step 4 – Attach the faux flowers to the front of your plaque using hot glue.

That’s it!  You just made yourself a colorful, cheerful sign for spring! It makes a great alternative to a traditional wreath or wall decor.
