What CAN I ADD TO MY Shiplap Sign ?

A good embellishment is what makes this shiplap sign extra fun! Here are some ideas you can use to jazz up your sign:

  • home sign – you can look at the Dollar Tree, but if you can’t find one their you can check Hobby Lobby. Lastly, you can always find one on Amazon.
  • faux flowers and greenery – you can go with whatever colors or types of flowers you like! I love how the stems of purple look with the faux greenery.
  • paper mache star – these are so versatile because you can paint them any color you like, or even decoupage them with pretty napkins.
