Our 4th of July – Patriotic Sign DIY

Patriotic Sign DIY

Happy Birthday America!  For this fourth of July we spent our day very similar to most Saturdays around here… doing house projects.  We bought some trees for our yard, built some furniture & I made a Patriotic sign to decorate for the 4th of July! Our DIY Patriotic Sign was so EASY to make & only cost a few dollars to create.

Supplies Needed to Make a Patriotic Sign DIY

  • 1 Board of MDF
  • Red, White, Blue & Gold Acrylic or Craft Paint
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Star Cookie Cutter
  • 1 Printed Picture of George Washington or any Favorite President

To Make a Patriotic Sign DIY

  • Jason cut some MDF for me & I measured lines, traced star cookie cutters and penciled in a flag for it.  Notice how my lines aren’t exactly straight?  That’s why Jason does most of the cutting around here ūüôā

  • To make my sign a little different I added a picture of our first president, George Washington.  I was back and forth whether to put it vertically or horizontally. You can definitely add any president you want to make it more personal!

  • Here is a link to the picture online.  I loved that the picture was an already an oval shape so all I did was cut it out.  I first tried to decoupage it but it just didn’t look right and the picture bubbled so I printed out another picture of GW and glued it on with Elmers glue.  Lastly I added some gold paint to finish it off.

We were blessed at the end of the day with something truly July 4th, fireworks in our yard!!!  We had been away the last 2 holidays so we didn’t know that we could see fireworks from our own house.  We had sent the kids to bed when soon after Ryan came running downstairs to tell us he could see fireworks from his bedroom window.  We ran back outside to see not one but two firworks shows on either sides of our house.  It was pretty awesome!

We were so pleased with how this sign turned out that we have been adding this sign to our living room mantel every 4th of July. (see our 4th of July mantel HERE)
