Create a Sign of Spring

~DIY Hand-painted Wood Sign~


Spring Sign

I think snow has been around for a lot of us lately, but I am definitely ready for spring! So much so that I decided to create my own “sign of spring!” Pun intended…

I always gauge spring by the buds that begin to bloom. It’s my favorite time of the year! I love to walk around outside and just take a peek at each new bud that begins to pop out! I’m not sure why…but I think it’s the sense of renewal, of starting fresh.

A few days ago, I shared my Easter table decorations in which I used these cute speckled eggs and my new faux tulips. Once my spring sign was finished, I knew I had to use them on mantel.

I wanted to create a mantel of light, fresh colors. I wanted it to have a soft peaceful look.

My wooden sign was the finishing touch! The quote alone makes me smile…”Never yet was a springtime, when the buds forgot to bloom.” -Margaret Elizabeth Sangster


My spring sign was easy to make and I’m going to share exactly how easy!


The piece of wood I used was a side panel of an old hutch that was in such bad shape I literally took it apart for scrapes! If you look closely, you can see a hole or two. But that’s how I like it! There’s a story there…

I used the font Papyrus and printed the quote about spring from Microsoft Word. I cut out the words and arranged them on my board. Using an ink pen, I traced the letters which left an imprint in the wood. Next, I simply painted inside the lines. Easy!

    What a beautiful quote and sign! I love the Papyrus font too. I also noticed how pretty your cloche looks just sitting right on the mantle. I just passed by one at the thrift store because it had no base and I couldn’t find a plate or anything that fit nicely under it — may have to go back and get it!
