DIY Wall Art With Your Own Custom Message

3 Materials
There are lots of ways to make signs, but if you want a simple and inexpensive method, I’ve got a DIY wall art project today that can be customized with your own special quote or message!
You don’t need any special equipment, you just need a piece of wood for the sign, paint, stickers, glue and a paintbrush.

I picked a large cabinet door from my junk stash, but you can use any size piece of wood for your sign. I painted the door white.
I wanted large letters, so I bought black script letter stickers and determined where each letter should go by lightly sticking them in place.

I didn’t adhere them all the way down – just enough to get them spaced properly.

You can lay down painter’s tape if you’re worried about getting the letters all straight, but the letters I picked are forgiving, so I just “eyeballed it”.
Use decoupage medium and a paintbrush to fully adhere the letters and seal the sign.

Attach hangers on the back, and it’s done!

My custom sign is a real statement piece in my farmhouse guest room.

It was inexpensive and easy to make and I love how it looks!
