DIY Spring Market Sign

April 11, 2024

Welcome to the Spring Market Wood Sign

Creating a charming wood sign is the perfect way to usher in the warmth and rejuvenation of the spring season into your home. This delightful piece adds a visual appeal and welcomes renewal and growth time into your home. It's a simple yet elegant way to acknowledge the transition from the cold, dormant winter months to the lively, blossoming period that spring embodies. Great for any table top, shelf, or tray display!


What You'll Need:

  • Unfinished Wood Block, size 4" x 4" (I found some on Amazon here)
  • Mod Podge
  • Brown Acrylic Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Printable Image (create your own or purchase on Etsy)
  • Scissors
  • Sandpaper (medium-grit)


Step 1: Prep Your Wood Block

Begin by sanding down your wood block to ensure a smooth surface. Wipe off any dust with a clean cloth to prepare for the stain application.

Step 2: Stain Your Wood Block

Stain your wood block with watered down brown acrylic paint and wipe off any excess.

Step 3: Print Your Image

Print your image on regular printer paper and cut out, making sure it fits the dimensions of your wood block (4" x 4").

Step 4: Apply Mod Podge

Using your foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the surface of your wood block. Be sure to cover the entire area evenly.

Step 5: Place Your Image

Carefully place your printed image on top of the Mod Podge-coated wood. Smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles with your fingers or a credit card to ensure it lies flat and adheres well.

Step 7: Finishing Touches

After the image is down and the Mod Podge has completely dried, I take a medium grit sandpaper and sand off any excess paper. I also distress around the edges to let that stain from step 2 show through! You can distress as much or as little as you want.
