DIY Spring Shiplap Sign

I guess you could say I’ve got a serious case of SPRING FEVER, because lately, I am determined to sprinkle bits of spring decor just about anywhere and everywhere I can. Maybe it’s because I’m sick of everything outside my window being deader than death itself. So, while strolling through the aisles of Michael’s the other day, I was inspired to create a spring-themed shiplap initial sign. Using some of the materials I already had on hand at home, the whole project only cost me around eleven bucks!


  • Unfinished round shiplap sign
  • White paint
  • Stencil (or wooden letter like I used)
  • Green moss
  • Glue gun
  • Jute rope

To begin, I painted the round shiplap sign white. (You could always stain the wood if you’d prefer.)

After the shiplap sign was dry, I then placed the wooden “M” on it and traced the letter with a pencil.

Next, I outlined small sections of the pencil with the hot glue and then attached clumps of moss. I worked in small sections so that I could keep the shape of the letter without the moss creeping over the lines.

Once the letter was all filled in, I trimmed the wild and crazy pieces back so that the “M” was clearly defined. Next, I looped the jute rope through one of the planks and tied a knot at the back. I then looped the other end of the rope to the opposite side and tied another knot at the back so that I could hang the sign. And that, believe it or not, was it! Such an easy, inexpensive little DIY that could even be used on a front door instead of a wreath!

Maybe if I keep myself busy with projects like this, I’ll forget that we still have who knows how many weeks left until the warm weather is here to stay….
