DIY: Tiered Front Door Sign

Every fall I try to get my holiday creativity flowing by making a front door wreath. Unfortunately, sometimes I bite off more then I can chew.  Then, I’m left with an unmet holiday deadline and a box of wreath supplies (i.e. black ribbon and skeletons).  Does this happen to anyone else?

Since I’ll be making this fall-winter burlap wreath at Thursday’s Blogging Meetup, I decided there is no need for me to take on my annual wreath project.  So, until my burlap wreath is hanging proudly on the front door, I decided to create and hang a Tiered Front Door Sign.  Four things I love about this project?

  1. It cost me less than $5 (I had the chalkboard paint and wire on hand).
  2. I can use it year round (by swapping out the acorns for valentine’s hearts, easter eggs, summer flowers…).
  3. Since I used chalkboard paint, I can change the message. Does anyone else think the exclamation point on the bottom sign is a little too abrupt?
  4. This project was SUPER easy!


DIY Tiered Front Door Sign01- Drill holes in plaques (note: on the bottom plaque you’ll only need to drill holes at the top of the wood sign), sand, and paint.

02- String wire through holes on plaques (curl ends of wire with screw driver or pencil if you desire).

03- Embellish if you’d like!

Lastly, write a fun message to future visitors and hang on your door!

    Maloree - I love this project. But since you asked the puctuation makes me want to BANG on your door… loudly, with force. No offense. Luv ya!! I am just in a silly mood.

    Maloree - Cam- I really do love it and the punctuation. You know by now that I have an attitude problem.

    camberley - Maloree- Your comments on this made me laugh. I may just go and add exclamation points to all three of the signs now.

    P.S. I love myself some attitude.
