DIY You are my Sunshine Sign

If you’re looking to brighten up your room (and your day!), then this DIY custom “You are my sunshine” sign is for you!

I love adding colorful touches to rooms in my house.  Having pops of color brings so much joy and happiness to a room, even if it’s only a few décor items scattered alongside other neutral colors.  I decided to blend cheery colors together with an uplifting quote using custom letters and a circular wooden shape from CraftCuts!  Check out the tutorial below to see how you can add a little sunshine to any room in your home!

Supplies:

Step 1: Add hot glue to the 10” dowel rods and glue them around the circle, leaving space for the 4” dowels.

Step 2:  Add a coat of yellow spray paint to the circle and dowel rods.

Step 3:  Paint all of the 4” sized dowels with the orange acrylic paint.

Step 4:  When the paint is dry, hot glue the orange dowels rods in between all of the yellow dowels on the circle piece.

Step 5: Cut a long piece of painter’s tape and add the letters for you “you are my” to the top.  This will help keep the letters from shifting around.  Add a coat of white paint to the top.  Add a second coat of paint if needed.

Step 6: Add a coat of white acrylic paint to the word “sunshine”.  Add a second coat if needed.

Step 7:  Once the words are dry, figure out the placement for the quote on your circle.  Next add painter’s tape under “you are my”.  This will help get the letters straight. 

Step 8: Add multi-grip glue to the back of the letters and word to secure them to the wooden shape. 

Step 9: Add Multi-Grip to the back of “sunshine” and add it underneath “you are my”.

Step 8:  Cut a piece of twine 2 inches long, fold it in half, add a drop of glue to the top back of the circle, please the loose ends of the twine on top, and add another drop of glue on top of the bottom of the twine.

Add your DIY custom you are my sunshine sign to any room in your home for an instant pick-me-up!  It would also look great on a gallery wall, or as outdoor décor (as long as it has been properly sealed with a clear protectant!).
