HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

4th of july signHello everyone, Jenn here from Housewives of Riverton and I’m so excited to show you how I created this 4th of July Wooden Plank Sign. I love how it turned out and think you’ll want one too!

 
 

To create this sign you’ll need the following:

 
 

4th Letter Set

 
 

 
 

Framed Plank Sign

 
 

 
 

Wood Stain

 
 

JULY wooden letters

 
 

Happy wooden letters or sign

 
 

Foam Paint Brushes

 
 

Red/White/Blue Paint

 
 

Black Vinyl for “of”

 
 

Small Banner Pieces

 
 

Wood Glue

 
 

Sanding Block

 

 

You’ll start your project by staining the 4th letters and the entire framed plank sign.

Once the stain is dry paint the planks white.

 
 

4th wood signI didn’t want a solid white paint so I watered it down a little and did a bit of a white wash on the planks. Once it was dry I slightly distressed the paint where the planks came together. I also distressed the letters for JULY.

 
 

Once everything is painted you can start laying out your words/letters until you have things just how you want them.

To add a little extra fun I added a little red/white/blue banner that I picked up in the Target dollar spot, it adds just the right amount of extra cuteness. You can also make your own banner easily, The Wood Connection has a wonderful collection of red/white/blue paper that would make a darling banner.

 
 

Head on over to Housewives of Riverton, we’re giving away a $25 Wood Connection Gift Card which will help you make this sign yourself!
