How To Make DIY Wooden Signs Using Vinyl

Sharing is caring!

Last week I worked with Words on Wood STL by inviting other area bloggers to attend a sign painting party. I first heard about this unique DIY workshop a few years ago when I attended an in home party at a friend’s home. Then I attended an event at the shop shortly after it opened up in Sappington, MO. Both times I created gorgeous wooden signs. I just knew that it was something perfect for St. Louis social media influences to get behind and help promote. And it was! This event was such a fun night for St. Louis bloggers. Each blogger invited a friend and everyone was able to pick out their own custom sign to create.

At Words on Wood the environment is so inviting. When you arrive you will be able to look around the store at some of the works that are for sale and then get started on your own unique treasure!

Words on Wood in St. Louis, MO.I took my cousin with me as my guest. She’s just 2 years younger than me and has always been like my little sister. We aren’t even first cousins. Sometimes we don’t even know what type of cousins we are. We are 2nd cousins on one side of the family and 3rd cousins on another side. Don’t ask. It’s complicated. Ha! Basically no matter what we were meant to be related and she is stuck with me forever.

So often I start a project and either don’t finish or when I finally finish I have tons of supplies left over that are just taking up space in my home. My solution is to simply attend a St. Louis wood sign painting party at Words on Wood. Definitely a favorite of mine and definitely something you should try.
