JOY Sign

We came up with this great little design made from 1×3’s and MDF letters! The under $15 for the entire project and it was super quick and easy. My kind of DIY!

Steps


Cut 12 pieces of 1x3 furring strip at 14”, or 4 pieces for each letter you decide to make.

Lay 4 of the boards side-by-side and cut 2 small pieces of wood almost the length of the width of the 4 boards. Run a line of wood glue under each of these two pieces and attach them using the stapler.

Attach each letter to the boards using the stapler. Then, add some decorative pieces to dress them up. Have fun with this part and be creative! Anything works. We chose to use fabric flowers and some string on ours.
