DIY Front Porch Welcome Stand

I stumbled across a pretty front porch “Welcome” sign stand on Pinterest, one night, and took the trip over to find the tutorial here. The project was right up my alley, since I LOVE LOVE LOVE wood projects and I was looking forward to creating a similar one and putting my own little touches on it!

welcome sign

Off to Home Depot we went!  Did you know they will cut your wood for you?  That made things so much faster.  I actually decided I could cut my smaller boards, myself, {this girl loves the power tools!} but I didn’t hesitate to ask them to cut the 4×4 for me!

4×4, 1×6, 1×4

I followed the tutorial almost exactly but did make some of my own changes along the way.

For starters, I used the “Welcome Title” found in the Silhouette Online store (welcome_title_C00252_20387) and stretched it to the dimensions I needed.

I then used twine to hang the sign, instead of beaded wire.

Another fun addition I tried was the finial to the top.  I bothered me a little that it was just flat on the top and I felt like it needed something else.

I found these finials at Lowe’s.

I think it added a great touch!

A couple of years ago, I bought 2 crown hooks from Laurie Anna’s Vintage Home shop.  They were originally intended to be on our bathroom wall to hold towels.  One fell off of the wall and broke, leaving me with one hook.  I didn’t want just one hook hanging, so I packed it up waiting for the next opportunity to use it.

It worked PERFECT for this project!  It just adds a little more “fun” to it.

I’ll definitely be changing the sign out to fit the seasons, but I LOVE this addition to our front porch.

The best part about it was how quick and easy it was to do!

Don’t you love it when you find something great on Pinterest and then you actually act on it??

I’m off to find my next project!

    Oh, I love it! I don’t get on Pinterest as much as I wish I did. Probably because when I DO get on it, I’m there for DAYS!

    You did a FAB job on that!

  5. You are so good at making things! This looks great!

  6. Great job! I love the added touch that the finial gave it. It really does make it seem more finished.

    I’ve made a few things that I found on Pinterest, and I have loved every piece that I’ve done even more than the inspiration. Such a great feeling! :)

  9. Love your Welcome post, especially the crown hook that you used. I made one last year from an old stair bannister but after seeing yours, I think I’m going to change up the hook I used. Thanks for the inspiration over at the Monday Funday Party!

  10. It turned out fantastic Jamie!
