Rather than buying Christmas gifts this year, I have decided to make some. I have found some great ideas of things I can make, but I think everyone I plan on giving gifts to would like something to decorate their home with. After looking around online, I decided that I wanted to make DIY wooden signs for everyone.

I want to make them all look different and something that the person I am giving them to will like.
I have found several ideas of what I can put on these signs and also sayings that people in my family will love. Before I make any of them as gifts or a thrift haul, I want to get the supplies and see how a few of them that I make turn out.
I am going to go to the craft store tomorrow while I am off of work. Then I can experiment and see what I can create and how they turn out. I have been looking around for more ideas of how to make these DIY wooden signs. I have added a few more supplies to my list because I have seen several that I love.
I have found rustic and primitive signs I can make that I know my mom will love. I am going to try to make her one with a star on it because she loves that and it will match the decor in her home. I am also going to make one of these for my sister with a special saying I found for her. She also loves the primitive look. The saying I found for her sign is also on other decorations around her home and I know she will love it.
For my dad and my brother I am going to make them signs that have their favorite football teams on them. I am going to try to paint the emblem of the team on the signs. I have seen stencils for the teams they like and hopefully when I go to the craft store they have them in stock. This will make these easier to paint rather than doing them freehand.
I think I will be able to do a great job on all of these signs and my family will love them. I have read several things online that says DIY wooden signs are one of the easiest things to make. I hope I have the same experience. If I’m lucky, the ones I do first will turn out nice and I will be able to give them as gifts. That will give me more supplies so I can make gifts for others, like my friends and co-workers. This is a gift that everyone will love. I can’t wait to try these signs out to see how they look when I’m finished with them.
