Easy DIY Name Sign
Anyone else getting stir crazy at home? If "Into the Unknown" means anything to you, I'm sure you'll appreciate something fun to try!
Karen's daughter wanted a sign for her door, so she quickly whipped something up with the help of her toddler.
This is a quick & easy project that takes less than an hour to make.
Note: Ideally you want to use a professional grade stain such as Rubio or Osmo, but if you don't have that on hand you make do with home craft supplies!
1/4" x 12" Baltic Birch Round
Walnut Peel & Stick Veneer - 12" x 12"
Step 1: Sand your piece
Step 2: Apply your stain (see note above) A quick and easy alternative to a wood stain is applying craft paint with a baby wipe. It spreads easily, and it dries very quickly. It's not very durable, but hey... this is only to give your kids a break from the TV!
Step 3: Design what you want your sign to look like. Pick a name, an image, or both
Step 4: Ideally you have a Cricut Maker and can cut out your image. If you don't, grab a sharp utility knife and a self healing cutting mat. Print out your design and tape it to your veneer. Slowly and carefully cut out your design. (Important: make sure your toddler is far away!)
Step 5: Peel off the veneer backing, and stick your design to the Baltic Birch round. It is that easy!
Step 6 (Optional, but recommended): Seal your project with a clear finish for durability and a more polished look. We sell 20ml sizes of Rubio which would be perfect for these small crafts.
Here's a few progress shots of this easy DIY name sign. Karen's undecided for what embellishment to add. Any ideas?
