"Hello" Springtime Metal and Pallet Wood Sign


Spring is the perfect time of the year to refresh your space, including your front door. My front door was in need of something new. So instead of a wreath, I decided on a pallet wood sign.
Visit TwoPurpleCouches.com and search "Springtime Metal and Pallet Wood Sign" for the full step-by-step tutorial. Or scroll to the bottom of this post and click on the link.
I made my own pallet wood sign, but a store-bought sign or background would also work.
My sign measures about 27.5" long.
I love the look of wood and metal together, so I decided to stain my pallet wood sign. I used two light coats of Minwax Polyshades in Bombay Mahogany.
Once the stain was completely dry, I was ready to add these galvanized metal letters I found at Michaels and finally, to embellish the sign with a few faux flowers and butterflies.

    What kind of glue did you use in your hot glue gun? I know foam melts with hot glue. Thank You. I love it and want to do myself.

    I'm currently getting ready to do my bedroom with my husband and I initials, but having a hard time with what I want to do with them. Any suggestions??

      @Samona I usually check Pinterest or Hometalk for inspiration; you could do anything from painting them to covering them with fabric. I also like to browse the aisles of craft stores to look for embellishments. Hope this helps :)

    About how much was everything

      I spent about $15 on the letters and butterflies; I already had the wood on hand to make the sign, and the flowers were left over from other projects.
