You may have joined me LIVE on Facebook last week to create a birch wood sign from old dock boards. I got through most of the project, but I had to cut the video to go pick up my son. Luckily for you, I finished the sign with extra details to make it more realistic and am going to share today! As a bonus, I am joining with a few of my blogging friends who believe in a colorful style like me to showcase multiple Christmas décor ideas. You can find links to their blog posts at the bottom of this article.
Birch Wood Sign Video Tutorial
I used video clips from above and from my Facebook LIVE broadcast to create a 2 minute video tutorial. Hopefully, the subtitles direct you how to make this birch wood sign in an easy-to-follow tutorial. This is the perfect length for you to share via YouTube with your friends.
It is crazy to think this stack of weathered dock boards…
…became this birch wood sign with realistic texture and details.
I like my sign just casually leaned up against the wall, but if you were to hang yours, add eyehooks and heavy duty picture hanging wire to the back. Also – if you like this project, check out the many other wood signs I’ve done made from pallets and other reclaimed wood!
This craft project should take you between 1 hour and 2 hours and would make the perfect holiday gift! Most of these materials cost next to nothing, but here is a material list you can work off of to create this craft.
Reclaimed wood (pallets, decking, old dock boards, etc)
Juniper branches from outside (or another evergreen you like)
White wood stain
Sharpie paint pens
White acrylic paint
Black acrylic paint
Picture hanging hardware + Wreath hanging hook
Another tip is to spray your juniper wreath with hairspray to slow the decaying process! This project is easier than it looks and you could totally make this! I would really appreciate if you pinned this image and shared it with your friends.
