How to Make a Barn Wood and Moss Sign

Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in crafts, family room, moss | 22 comments

A trip to my in-laws farm turned up some old barn wood.

Special barn wood.

Barn wood from the family barn.

It needed a special project.

To be displayed in a prominent place.

So, I gathered my supplies:

4 pieces of old barn wood

1 moss covered letter

2 thin pieces of wood

staple gun

picture hanger

And, laid the barn wood “good” side down and placed the 2 thin strips of wood on the top and bottom.

Then, I stapled the wood to all 4 pieces of barn wood.

And, added the hanger.

This is when I am glad to have a gallery wall.

It is just code for “there is always room for 1 more picture.”

I think it was invented by the same decorator who invented the style “eclectic.”

Again, code for “I can’t decide, so I will just go with all styles.”

Do you see the glass dishes?

The large one belonged to my great grandparents.

The small one without the lid was a $2 Goodwill find last week.

And, the lidded one was a gift from my mother-in-law.

I love when a collection is born.

Almost as much as I love when my gallery wall grows!

Life to the full!

  1. Everything looks great as always. Love the barnwood project.

  2. Love the barn wood!
    That sure is a cute pillow, too! šŸ™‚

  3. Wow that really looks good. All I have left from my mothers farm is a horseshoe.
    I like the moss S and it looks very good on your wall. I also like the pillow on your couch.
    Have a great evening.

  4. So simple, yet beautiful!!

  5. Love the Skiddie sign. My sister is a graduate. did you make this yourself or buy it. I would love to get one or attempt the DIY. thanks.


  6. You are quite the inventive talent gal. Love your barn wood letter. What size is your “S”? I’ll have to get some more green moss. Been staying out of the craft stores for couple weeks so I can use what I have already at home, my, what a concept that is.
    Looks pretty simple even for me but hubs won’t let me near any tools as long as he’s around and he’s always around. That’s ok, then he can get the saw and all that good stuff out to make what I’m hankering after.
    Did you make that pillow with the bird nest on it? If so I’m deliriously envious. Shame on me but I am. I’m sure I don’t have nearly enough bird stuff in the house. More and more of it has migrated to the living room. Waiting for hubs to comment but so far since I’ve kept it tidy he hasn’t complained. Guess he figures it won’t do him any good anyway. Sigh, senior married life, sigh. Happy days girl.

  7. I love your sign! Great look! Nicole from southerncharm
