DIY Monogram Welcome Sign Chalkboard

May 16, 2014

I have such an easy decorating idea for you today.  You may already be familiar with this and some other DIY gilded chalkboards I made a while ago.  And all the ways I've used it thus far to add just the right touch to my faux mini-mantle when it's needed that extra sumptin-sumptin around certain holidays. 

For Christmas:

And most recently for Easter:

The word for the day is V-E-R-S-A-T-I-L-E. 

Well, I've just gone and added a new look to it.

Nothing fancy.  Just plain old Welcome.  And a capital "A" for our family name initial.  And you can never go wrong with that boxwood wreath.  I think this works well for us right now as we try and make the house welcoming but not too "personal" for prospective buyers.  You can see where I copied the font from here.

I tried the look with some of my myrtle topiaries, which I love!  You can see where I talk about them here.

I really do love experimenting with vignettes on my faux mini-mantle of sorts.  I think this one is my favorite so far.

Which one is YOUR favorite?

I really like it - so versatile. I am another one that likes boxwood.
Been thru that "depersonalizing your home" a few times myself, so know what you are dealing with.
Enjoy your weekend!

It looks great, I'll have to give it a try. It looks so good with the wreath.

I've always loved chalkboards, and love having something to change with the seasons or holidays. The boxwood wreath is a great touch. I used a alphabet stencil on my chalkboard, and everyone asked how I did it...Just the cardboard sets you can get at the Wally mart or Michael's.
My handwriting is not as good as yours;-). Remembering your yard in the spring, bet it's beautiful right now... take care. Love, Penny
