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.
