Easy DIY Canada Day Wooden Welcome Sign
What You’ll Need:
- Hanging wood plaque
- Red Paint
- White Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Stencils (optional)
- Glitter (optional)
Firstly, using the ruler and pencil, measure and mark the wood plaque, dividing it into four equal parts. Be careful to not press too hard with the pencil as it can leave marks in soft wood. Once divided, paint the two outside portions, leaving the middle to create the iconic maple leaf. Set aside to dry.
Secondly, draw your maple leaf in the middle of your plank, use the ruler to measure a square in the centre of the plaque; draw your leaf inside and then paint the it red. If using a stencil, use painters tape to secure the stencil and then gently dab the paint inside of the stencil to create the leaf. Set aside to dry.
Finally, pencil in, or stencil your lettering. Once you’re happy with the lettering go ahead and paint it using white paint. Again, set it aside to dry. Add some sparkles before the paint dries if you want!
Hang this enjoyable Easy DIY Canada Day Wooden Welcome Sign on your front door, place it in a planter or lean it on a window sill. It looks great anywhere you put it. Need more decorating ideas this coming Canada Day? See our Easy DIY Canada Day Paper Garland!
