Switching Out My HOME Sign, Dollar Tree DIY

Updated: Aug 19, 2021



This Fall I DIY’d a wooden Home sign for my front porch with the option for an interchangeable ‘O.’


So when preparing for the Christmas season, I visited my local Dollar Tree and came across a spin top shaped wooden craft ornament sign around the perfect size for my Home sign.


I had no idea how I wanted to decorate it at the time but I knew I was going to stick with my black and white color scheme.


I grabbed some leftover acrylic paint (a white bottle and a black white), 2 foam brushes, painter tape and some disposable gloves....your girl can be a little messy at times!




Here’s how I did it:

  1. I removed the tag and string that came attached to the ornament sign.

  2. Then, I painted 3 coats of white paint for my base color...allowing each coat to dry for about 30-45mins between each coat.

  3. Once the base color was completely dry, I applied painters tape at an angle...trying my best to spread them out evenly..apply firm pressure for a good mask down.

  4. Next, I painted the untaped areas with 2 coats of black paint, removed the painter tape while still wet, then sprayed it with 2 coats of sealant once black layers were completely dried.

For an added touch, I wrapped a red chenille stem around a pencil to give it coiled affect and attached it with a little out glue.


To attach my new ‘O’ to the Home sign, I simply use a black Velcro Command strip. Bam!

Simple, cute, and super inexpensive!!!
