Paint California Poppies and Lupines DIY sign
Paint California Poppies and Lupines on a board to create a DIY address sign. I painted these lovely poppy flowers step by step, one easy stroke at a time and so can you!
Paint California Poppies and Lupines to create beautiful DIY art, hand painted signs or any type custom art work you desire.
This project was a combination of a few different lessons I have available for you. I will link to them all so you can replicate it or use it as a jumping off point for your own unique painted DIY project.
This custom address sign is easy to paint and combines several tutorials here on this site.
Wood Base for DIY sign
This sign is painted on a 1 x 6 pine board it is budget friendly and easy enough for beginners. You can even have the lumber store cut it for you. I don’t give an actual size as it will vary with how many numbers are in your address and how tall you want your flowers. I would have preferred not to overlap my painted California Poppies but I miscalculated.

How to Create Lettering for DIY signs
To print off the lettering so you can paint your own address here is a tutorial I posted on how to use Word to create signs so you don’t need stencils.
The lesson shows you how I printed out the numbers for the address. On the California Poppy and Lupines sign I used the font American Typewriter.

I made a pattern and downloadable workbook for this and turned it into a workshop.
