A dear friend of mine recently experienced a very important day in her life; she became a U.S. citizen. I realize how meaningful this day was to her and her family, so I wanted to make her a little something to celebrate this occasion. This sweet little wood sign made a thoughtful gift for her and is also a fun little piece of patriotic decor. This wood sign is so easy to make and comes together in just a few simple steps. Today I am sharing how to make DIY Patriotic Mini Wood Home Sign!



To make this DIY Patriotic Mini Wood Home Sign, you need just a few supplies. I have included some affiliate links for your convenience. There is no additional cost to you. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.


Directions for Making Your DIY Patriotic Mini Wood Home Sign


First, using your foam brush, paint your wood block, using acrylic craft paint. I gave my block three complete coats of paint, with time between each coat to dry.

The Lettering

I am very fortunate that I have a Cricut Explore Air Machine that I had received as a Christmas gift. I am having so much fun using it to make personalized gifts like this sweet Customized Pillow Cover. Repurposing some old, dated canvas prints and adding some lettering made with the Cricut, I was able to make these Farmhouse Style Signs for my mantle. I have made seasonal decor like this Easter Bunny Reverse Canvas and most recently, this DIY Patriotic Pizza Pan Door Hanger.

In Cricut Design space, type the word “home”.  I used the font, DTS Cottage Style.  This is also the same font that I used for my DIY Patriotic Pizza Pan Door Hanger. This script is one of my favorites! As I said, if you don’t have a Cricut, you can always use some letter stickers. There are a variety available at your local craft store.


When I was happy with my lettering design, I welded the words and cut them using the Cricut Explore Air Machine, with white permanent vinyl.

Once all of the cutting is done, I weeded the vinyl. This means I used my weeding tool from this basic Cricut tool kit to remove the excess vinyl so that I just had the lettering left.

Adhering the Lettering

The next step is to use Cricut vinyl transfer tape to transfer the lettering onto the painted wood block. Cut a piece of transfer tape to size, peel off the backing (but keep it for later), and adhere the transfer tape to your lettering, smoothing as you go. Next, remove the backing from the lettering and place the lettering onto the pan. The grid on the transfer tape helps to align the lettering so it goes on straight. When you are happy with the placement, carefully peel back the transfer tape and replace it on its backing. You can reuse the transfer tape again!


The Ribbon

Once the lettering is in place, turn the block over to the back. Using the hot glue, adhere the ribbon of your choice. I love this fun polka dot ribbon!

Finally, for an extra detail, add a small bow in a coordinating ribbon and enjoy.


Just think how versatile this craft project is! You can add some artificial greenery or flowers too. By changing up the colors, lettering, and ribbon, you can create sweet little signs for all of the seasons and holidays too. I’m thinking about all of the possibilities!

How cute is this?!
