If you love farmhouse style, you have probably seen a fresh eggs sign in many homes. I thought I would make one for my kitchen and show y’all just how I did it. Don’t worry! This is very simple and you will have your own DIY farmhouse sign in just minutes! Follow along to learn how to make your own farmhouse fresh eggs sign for your home. Add it to your kitchen or any room in your home.
- Unfinished Wood Arrow
- White Craft Paint
- Gray or Black Craft Paint
- Fresh Eggs Printable
- Graphite Paper (optional)
- Paint Brush
- Clear Sealer (optional)
- Sawtooth Hanger
Start by painting the entire arrow with the white craft paint. I painted it on front and back for a more finished appearance. I used just one coat of paint and a dry brush to give a more rustic appearance. Allow to dry completely before continuing and then print the fresh eggs lettering and cut to fit your sign as shown below.
Tape into place and transfer the lettering to the arrow. You can do this two different ways:
- Use a pen and trace the lettering pressing hard. This will make a slight indention into the wood that you can follow when painting. You can see this below with the “H”.
- You can also use graphic paper between the paper and the wood. When you trace, the graphite paper will leave a line for you to follow.
Just use grey or black paint to fill in the lines. I went over my lettering twice with paint to fill it in more and make the edges cleaner. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
Because this DIY farmhouse sign may end up in your kitchen, you can seal the entire thing with a clear sealer if needed and spray on a few coats according to the directions on the package and allow to dry before hanging.
