If I had to pick between only making my own home decor or only buying store bought decor for the rest of my life, I would choose making my own 100%, and this Standing Round Home Sign is part of the reason why!
Sure, you can find a home sign online or at any number of home decor retailers. You can even find a stand to hang it on.
But, what you won’t find are completely customizable pieces that you get to add your personality and style and create something that matches your vision perfectly.
This standing round home sign is a blank, unfinished kit that I sell in my shop. I took the basic brown wood finish and transformed it into a piece of stunning home decor that blends into my style and aesthetic perfectly!
When a customer purchases the standing round home sign from my shop, they get to do the exact same thing with their own style, and I think that is the most amazing part of crafting!
How to make a Standing Round Home Sign
I started this kit like every one of my kits – by sanding each piece. When we cut these on our laser machines, it can leave a layer of residue that affects the finish on them.
Once each piece was sanded, I stained them with brown acrylic paint and a tiny bit of black. To do that, mix a bit of water and paint together and use a foam sponge or wet wipe to apply the mixture to each piece.
Use a clean wet wipe to remove any excess paint from each piece and allow them all to dry completely. I like to use a heat gun to speed up the drying process.
Once all the pieces to the standing round home sign are dry, you can start to paint them! I painted the circle with white paint and sanded to distress the edges and around the scores.
Then, I painted the H,M, and E with blue paint, and distressed those as well. For the windmill, I used grey paint and painted the center circle the same blue I used on the letters.
I distressed teh windmill as well. I didn’t paint the spindles after staining them. Instead, I used a sander to distress the details of the spindles.
Once all the pieces are dry and distressed, I glued them together with Gorilla Super Glue!
For the stand, I stained it brown and lightly brushed white paint over the stained finish. I also lightly brushed brown around the edges to add some detailing/shadowing to the stand.
Again, make sure all the pieces are dry, then glue them together with Gorilla Super Glue.
I hope you enjoyed this Standing Round Home Sign as much as I did and decide to make them for yourself! I would love to see how yours turns out!
