After hanging my Christmas wreath over my mantel, I felt like it was missing something. My solution was this DIY wooden wreath sign!
For the sign, inexpensive plywood works well. I found a piece that was 4′ x 4′ so I just needed to cut off a foot since I wanted my sign to be 3′ x 3′.
Home Depot offers a free cutting service which made it so much easier (especially since the last time I used the table saw a piece went flying and hit my windshield).
Once I had my plywood cut to size, I printed about my artwork. It could be printed at a printshop on a large 3’x3′ paper (probably the easiest choice), but I tiled the artwork and printed it at home.

I painted my boards a slightly off-white color and gave them two coats of paint.
The printout was cut and taped together.
The type was transferred using good, old-fashioned carbon paper.
It really was less time-consuming than you would expect.
After all the words had been transferred using carbon paper, I painted the lettering with a small brush and black paint.
Once my lettering was complete, I used the chop saw to cut down furring strips for the frame.
I painted them black (with spray paint) and attached them to the frame with an air gun.
A small hook was added to hold the wreath.
Once the hook is in place, hang the wreath and it is ready to be displayed!
