For a DIY porch sign you need a 6' piece of wood at least 5.5" wide, outdoor or heat transfer vinyl, wood stain or paint, & ribbon.

First download my free porch sign designs. You can use them with or without a Cricut. My logo will not be on the downloaded designs.

I used HTV for this sign.

I then used my printer & printed the letters like this to make other signs.

Upload the designs to your cutting machine software, or print them (leave them large) on regular paper.

Stain or paint the wood porch sign. I used Rustoleum's weathered gray.

Place the letters & words on the sign, leaving 8-12" at the top & about 2" between letters. Iron over each one for 15-20 seconds.

Don't have a Cricut? Keep reading to see how you can still make a DIY porch sign.

No Cricut? Print the design, making sure your printer doesn't resize the letters, then scribble on the back of each letter & "home" with pencil.

Place the paper on the sign & tape it down with painter's tape. (You'll be using the "home sweet home" design.)  

Trace the words & letters with pencil. That will leave the outline on the porch sign.

Use a paint pen to fill in the outlines on the porch sign.

Wrap a white cotton rope around the top of the sign.

Next, make a loopy bow for the top of the sign. I used 2 ribbons.

Attach the bow to the rope with a pipe cleaner. That way you can change it out every season.

I added our family name under the rope & bow. You can make your own in Design Space or Word, PicMonkey, etc., then add it to your porch sign.

Now you can make a matching door hanger with a round piece of wood! The free "welcome" design is available on the blog!

You need a round wood sign, paint, ribbon, & HTV or printer & pencil.

Paint the sign.

Download one of my free door hanger designs & cut it on vinyl or print it out.

Transfer the vinyl or printed design onto the door hanger.

Add a rope to hang then a loopy bow.
