This Do It Yourself Easy Hanging Word Sign is a gorgeous addition to your home! The word I chose to use was Grateful, I chose this word because that’s how Summer makes me feel. I take this time to recognize that we made it through another season, and for that I am GRATEFUL. I bought the grateful sign from Dollar General and the circle I used was a 10 inch circular disc from Magnolia.
Let’s get into the DIY!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Painter’s tape
- Navy blue + white paint
- Hot glue gun
- Gold pen (optional)
- Paint brushes
- Magnolia Design CO. 10 inch circle plate-> buy it here
- Grateful decorative words
- Jute string
- Scrap fabric/ribbon
- Wooden Beads
The first step is to begin with your Magnolia circle plate and mark out the lines with painter’s tape. A great tip is to use a little piece of tape to assist in making the lines even.
Next, you’ll want to paint in your yellow lines. I painted two coats to make sure I had a nice even color. In order to make the drying process quicker, you can use a hair drier in between coats.
Once your paint is dry, you can gently peel back the painter’s tape to reveal the stripes!
Since part of this step is optional, I’ll explain it together. The blue was a little light to me and I wanted to be a little darker so I painted a navy blue on top of the word grateful. Two coats of the blue made a even color and then I proceeded to outline the word with the gold pen. This added a nice pop to the piece but it is completely optional.
I created this super sweet bow next. Due to the fact that I had a very small amount of this ribbon left, my bow was a little unorthodox. With the extra pieces, I created the bottom of the bow, cutting at an angle to create some detail. Afterwards, I hot glued it to the top center of the piece and added a cute button to embellish the center of the bow.
Finally, you can glue your word onto the Magnolia circle. Paint the wood beads navy blue, with one white, string it onto your jute string, making sure to add knots to either end with a loop at the top. Now, you should hot glue the end of the jute string with the beads on it to the back top center of your sign and secure it with any scrap fabric using the hot glue. Your sign is now finished! Hang it up and enjoy.
