Step by Step Instructions for How to Make a DIY Pallet Sign

Size of our DIY Pallet Sign is 37″ Wide by 22″ Tall by 1.5″ Deep

Step TWO – Line Up the Pallet Boards & Cut the Boards to Size

After prying the wood from the pallet, we lined the boards up one on top of the other to decide how big we wanted to make our DIY pallet sign.

Some of the boards had red paint on them so we separated out the painted boards from the plain ones.

Jason cut the center boards down so they were all the same length with a mitersaw. 

We then cut 4 of the red boards to frame the sign lengthwise with a table saw.

Step THREE – Sand Down the Pallet Wood Boards

Jason sanded the boards down with our orbital hand sander.

Step FOUR – Nail the Pallet Boards Together to Create a DIY Pallet Sign

We attached the boards together with a finish pin nailer.

Step FIVE – Using Vinyl Letters to Create your Welcome Name Sign

My sister had given us a vinyl cutout of our blog name on it for Christmas & I first tried to attach that to the board but we soon decided it was not sticking as well as we wanted it to. 

I decided to cut out the letters in order to trace them. 

We also printed out the words “the” & “est 2001” to add to our outdoor diy pallet sign.

I cut out the words & numbers & traced them on the diy pallet sign with a pencil.

Using a Sharpie to Color in the Pallet Name Sign for the Front Porch

Using a sharpie I colored in the words and numbers I had traced for our DIY pallet sign. 

Because the board was still a little rough the black letters from the sharpie came out looking distressed already!  Yay!

Step SIX – How to Hang the Outdoor DIY Pallet Sign for the Farmhouse Front Porch

Jason screwed the sign up with 2 long exterior screws above our red entryway bench.

We hung it a little high because that faux beam will be coming down so we can extend the roof of our front porch soon.

  1. Your sign is the perfect addition to your pretty front porch. It’s great that you could use pallet wood already painted with some red for the frame. Be ready for compliments when guests arrive to your home!

  2. This looks so cute on your porch, Tara! I thought the lettering would be a difficult process, but I love that you just used a Sharpie–so easy! I would love to try to make a sign like this for our farmhouse!
