See how my huge front porch welcome sign transforms our entry and learn how to make your own with my step by step tutorial!
I love to make family and friends feel welcomed when they come over, so I figured I’d put out the welcome sign!
And this one just happens to be huge! Literally.
I think it’s just dreamy…
HUGE Front Porch Welcome Sign

Here’s how I made it… It was SO easy! You’re going to be chuckling at the end of the tutorial!
- Wood letters, mine are 9.5″ tall. These are similar.
- Exterior Paint, I used Wrought Iron by Benjamin Moore in satin
- Wood Board, mine is 11″ wide x 80″ tall
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
Step One: Paint The Letters
I started with these pre-cut letters from Hobby Lobby…
I painted them with some leftover exterior paint, Wrought Iron by Benjamin Moore…
Step Two: Layout The Letters
Once the letters were dry, I placed them on my weathered board (which I snagged from my parents farm, just like this one).
Step Three: Glue Letters Onto The Board
Once I was sure everything would fit with the proper spacing, I used my super hot glue gun and glued them right onto the board. Those letters are stuck!
*Note: Don’t want to use hot glue to attach the letters? You can also nail them in place… just be sure to fill your nail holes!
Step Four: Enjoy!
With the sign done, I just propped it up on our front porch. I told you it was really easy!
I just love how it looks!
And it’s so welcoming!
Heck, even I feel welcomed walking up!
I’m in love with the combination of the aged wood, rusty nails, sleek letters and cornstalks… which I chopped down from our field!
Our front entry is officially dressed for fall… You can see the rest of it here.
I’m in disbelief of how amazing this project looks for how easy it was to make! Those are the best kind!
