If you go to any craft sale or craft store you see these type of signs. Welcome signs with your home state somewhere in the wording. They even make state necklaces, T-shirt’s, etc.
So working of that idea, I make a welcome sign with my state (Minnesota) as the O. I made this sign for dollars! Super easy to do your self as I have a trick to teach you about how to make perfect letter stencils. No Circuit machine needed here... And you do not need to be a perfect painter to do this. I am not but find this super easy and looks so good.
If you were to buy this somewhere weather it be from a store or online you would pay a small bundle.
I was able to find pieces of barn wood at a flea market for $1.00 a foot. I think this sign was about 4', so total to me $4...
Here is the step by step way to make a great entry way sign or really anywhere you want. I chose to make my sign weather proof and for my front doorway.
