One of the fun parts of decorating your home or even your shed, is adding a welcoming entrance. You can add a welcome mat, colorful plants, even paint your door a bright, inviting color.  But, one simple way to greet your guests is by creating a welcome sign.

This sign doesn’t always have to say “welcome,” though. Get creative and let your personality show!


If you’re from the south, then “Hey Y'all!” may be your favorite greeting.  A fun idea is to trace your state onto a canvas or piece of scrap wood, then paint your favorite welcome phrase on top.  In this example, they took the background color and made it a couple of shades darker to add an accent design, so the canvas didn’t look as flat.
