I love to make a lot of our home decor. Sometimes I make it because I can’t find what I want commercially, other times I make it because I don’t want to spend the money on commercially made decor. One of my favorite ways to decorate outside is with porch signs. I typically make them two sided so I can use them for multiple seasons. I just made a Simple DIY Porch Sign for the Fourth of July, and I really love it!
If you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
DIY Welcome Signs
The first time I made a welcome sign for my home was with I made Simple Valentine’s Day Home Decor with Cricut. I love making oversized signs and decor for my home, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to actually make these!

I usually use what I have on hand to make my signs, but if you need to buy supplies, a quick shopping trip will take care of everything you need!

When I make any sign for my home, my first stop is the hardware store for scrap or inexpensive lumber. Sometimes I use 1×4’s, 1×6’s, or even scrap pieces of plywood.
After I find the wood I want to use, I bring it home and cut it to length. If I am using 1x lumber, I also cut two pieces that are the width of the boards I am using to act as a brace on the top and bottom of the sign.
Next, I paint or stain the wood.
Then, I upload my SVG file to Cricut Design Space and cut the file using Iron On.
Once the image is cut, I weed the excess Iron On, and place it onto the wood sign.
After I am happy with the placement, I use an EasyPress to press it onto the wood.
