Create this easy DIY welcome home sign with just a few supplies. This sign will look amazing displayed in your home throughout the whole year.
Hello, my name is Amy and I blog at amylanham.com. I love to create decor for my home. There’s something extra special about seeing your work displayed throughout your home.
And as a maker, I want to be greeted by a project that is perfectly complimented to my home. So I decided to make a DIY welcome home sign to welcome us home!
I customized it to the colors that I use in my home, but you can use any colors you like. That’s part of the beauty of crafting and DIY! Everything is customizable.

DIY Welcome Home Sign Tips:
Picking The Font
You don’t have to buy fonts from Cricut, instead use the system fonts. There are lots of pretty fonts to pick from.
I think a script font looks great for the welcome and a serif for the home. But you can use anything you like. A serif for both would look really nice to, but again, feel free to play around with fonts and create something that you love.
Or you can copy what I did! I used Zapfino for ‘welcome’ and Verdana for ‘home’. The Welcome is 12 inches across, because that’s how big my vinyl is. The welcome is sized at 156. Home is all caps and sized at 212. I put a space between each letter in home, so that it would be spaced out to be the same length as the welcome.
Again, you can choose to do whatever you want! This is just the settings I used to cut my vinyl, so if you want it exactly like mine, you can create it.
Tips for the Flowers
Pick a flower bundle that has a few different types of flowers and leaves. If you want just one type of flower or color, that’s fine.
But leaves, berries, or smaller and bigger flowers, will add extra interest to your sign. So pick the flower bouquet accordingly, or pick a couple to get all the different elements that you like.
Take the flowers and leaves off of the sticks, you just need the flower tops. First arrange the flowers how you think you will like them. This may take a couple tries.
You might need to trim a couple of the leaf stems. After you have everything arranged as you like, use hot glue to adhere the flowers to the sign.
Groups of 3 look really nice, with a little bit of leaves.
Do I have to use transfer tape?
Kind of. Transfer tape makes it extremely easy to transfer your vinyl from the backing to your project. If you use a script font, like I did, it’s almost impossible to get it on the sign without using transfer tape.
So I would absolutely recommend using transfer tape. You can use the tape a couple times before throwing it away. So if you wanted to, you could use the tape for the ‘welcome’ place it and then use the same tape for the ‘home’.
I find that the tape can be used 2-4 times before having to get another piece.
