Day 15 - Small beach signs

It’s the last day of the beach segment of my 31 days of making wood signs!

Today, I’m going to show you the small beach signs/blocks/ornaments that I’ve made!

I had a really rough scrap piece of wood that I bought on the scrap cart at Home Depot! I thought some really small hanging signs would look good made out of this wood!

Here’s a look at all the different ones I made….


And a better look at just the beachy ones!

(Totally looks like these are on sand, huh?! It’s my driveway! Ha!)


The hubby bought a circular saw for Christmas, but I made these before then, so I had my dad help me out! I painted the boards the letter color, he cut them, I drilled the holes.

Later I added my stencils I cut, spray painted over the letters and removed them to reveal the words beneath, then strung them up with jute twine.

I used a lot of these on my Christmas tree last year, and sent several to my best friend!

I also made these beachy blocks that are perfect for setting on a shelf.

  1. What a great decorative use for scrap lumber! I love little wooden signs and these would make great gift tags! The blocks are easily changed with the seasons. I enjoyed your post.
