Double Sided Welcome Sign

This double sided welcome sign is something I've wanted to make for a long time. I finally got it done, and we finally had some sun, and I finally remembered to grab some photos of it when the sun was out.


I am seriously lacking in cute front porch decor, so I decided I needed to work on that. To make storage easy, I made a fall sign on one side and a Christmas sign on the other. Two seasons in one sign means less to store in the off season!


On the fall side, I stained the fall side with 2 different colors of stain. I blended them together in the center of the board to give it an ombre look. I really like Minwax Express Color Wipe on Stain. They're very low odor and super easy to use.


For the lettering I used SRM vinyl in metallic gold and beige cut with the Silhouette Cameo. It's hard to tell from the photos, but SRM's metallic vinyl has this lovely matte sheen to it.


For the Christmas side of my sign, I went with a nice rich red paint. I love the pop of color this bright red brings to the front porch.


I used SRM white vinyl for the words. I'm super happy to have a few more decorations for the front of my house!

I wrote this post while participating on the SRM design Team.
