Interchangeable Seasonal Wood Signs Nesting Box DIY

The idea is to have a single sign that you can change out for the different seasons; spring, easter, summer, patriotic, fall, Halloween, Christmas, and even special occasions like birthdays.  These fun pieces of decor are an easy to decorate your home without buying and storing extra signs.

how do you personalize seasonal wood signs?

At this point in the project it all depends on how you want to personalize your sign. For this DIY I used the following additional supplies:

steps to make a diy interchangeable sign 

  1. Using a tiny bit of stain or paint on a baby wipe, cover the frame with color. If you don’t want to use stain, you can water down any color of paint you desire to get the same effect.  White, red or gray would be great colors for this project!
  2. Paint the insert your desired color. I went with white.
  3. Apply mod podge to the insert if using the FREE printable.
  4. Trim your printable and place on insert. 
  5. Apply a thin layer of mod podge over the printable and allow to dry.
  6. Once dry, sand down the edges.
  7. If you prefer using an SVG with your cutting machine like I did, grab it HERE.
  8. Using your hot glue, add various sized and colored buttons all over your tree to mimic ornaments.
  9. Embellish with ribbon or hanger as desired.

  1. I love the grey and white tree! It’s so pretty, thank you for your great ideas, I love them!
    I do have a question, I’m not very good with stencils at all. The paint always bleeds. How do you prevent that from happening?
    Thank you again!
