How to make a DIY Welcome Porch Post
This week in the Creative Haven VIP group we are making this DIY welcome porch post!
This project idea was sparked by a sweet member of the Creative Haven. In fact, I promised her we would make this DIY welcome porch post.
Last month, we did our “we can make that” series. We do that every quarter in the Creative Haven. Her submission was tied in votes after the votes were already tallied up.
She really wanted to make this and even though there are a ton of tutorials showing how to make this welcome post, but I am going to put my own spin on it using items from Dollar Tree and some scrap lumber.
Join the Creative Haven today!
I know what you are thinking, where is the tutorial? Where’s the step by step? Well, that is a great question. This is a special project only for Creative Haven Members!
There is plenty of FREE DIY Home decor and other projects on my blog but there are also specific exclusive members-only DIY projects that I save just for the Creative Haven VIP members. I hope you consider joining us inside the Creative Haven.
This post may one day be public, but just in case it never does go public, and you want to get in on this creation and make it with me and my creative haven friends, you can get the full how-to tutorial and DIY Welcome Porch Post in the exclusive VIP club!
