Make this fun DIY spring sign using dollar store materials! Pick your favorite colors and scrapbook papers to personalize.
You definitely need to celebrate something with Mod Podge too, so let me show you how I made this sign and then you can personalize it.
I encourage you to, whatever you do, add lollipop flowers. They are so cute and SO fun to make. So let’s do this thing.

Here’s the sign before I re-did it – welcome Easter! Welcome to my Mod Podge jar, that is . . . Sand the sign lightly and wipe away the sanding dust with a damp cloth.
I then cut the paper about 1/4″ within the tracing so that some of the paint would show around my paper when I Mod Podged it to the front. Set aside.
Take your chipboard circles and trace them. You should also cut these out just inside the lines so that some of the paint peeks out the side. Want perfect circles? Use a Sizzix Big Shot or punch (or similar). Set aside.
At this point, choose wooden letters for the saying of your choice and paint them. I chose “Yeah Spring!” and painted them Pink. Set those aside to dry as well.
While this is drying, go back and Mod Podge the small paper circles you cut out to the fronts of the painted circle shapes. Allow to dry.
Spread a medium layer of Mod Podge over the top. Allow to dry and then coat the back and the front again. Give another coat over the entire plaque and allow to dry.
Your letters are dry and so are your circles. It’s time to assemble everything! I cut small felt circles to fit the centers of my chipboard circles, and then glued those and the buttons to the fronts to make flowers. Use the tacky glue to attach the letters and the flowers in the place that you want them.
