Over the past month, I’ve taken a storage room in our basement and transformed it into a craft room. It’s not completely finished, but it’s finally to my favorite stage in a room remodel…adding in the decor and special details. For me, all the personal touches and handmade pieces are what completes a room. In a craft room, it helps to have inspiration around every corner like this super fun laser cut DIY wood sign I’m going to show you how to make today…
- Shadow Box with Chicken Wire
- ‘Be Creative’ Laser Cut Wood Sign
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint
- Washi Tape Sheets, Washi Tape or other Decorative Tape
- Hemp Twine or Ribbon
- Core’dinations Cardstock Paper
How cool is this washi tape paper! It was so easy to work with and you can cut it any size you need, making it even more fun to play with. Cut the washi paper into 1/2 inch strips and apply to the edges of the chicken wire frame. Or use washi tape – or another decorative tape – to suit your style.
The walls in my room are really light, so I added a piece of green cardstock to the back of the frame to make the DIY wood sign really pop. I simply cut a few strips of the washi sheets and taped the paper on the back of the frame.
Since I didn’t want to see the chicken wire through the writing, I taped a piece of white cardstock to the back of the laser cut sign.
The clothespins were embellished with a couple pieces of washi paper for another fun pop of pattern and color.
The washi sheets were so fun, I couldn’t help but add a few pieces across the front to create a little banner. Simply fold a piece of washi tape in half over the twine and cut the bottom edge to look like a hanging pennant.
I can hardly wait to get creative in my new craft room. With all of this color and inspiration, creativity will come naturally!
