Door Decoration Diy- How To Make A Welcome Sign From Fabric

Finally, spring is here and a great way to welcome this most awaited season after this seriously-I’m-so-over-winter period is to hang some door decoration.

If you’ve been following through my diys and crafts, you may have noticed how I love to repurpose and upcycle. I get a real kick out of it.

Today, I’d like to share how I made a door decoration welcome sign out of fabric swatches. I have a set with such pretty prints and I wanted to use them for this diy. It’s been sitting for quite some time now in my craft room waiting for that project that’ll showcase the lovely prints and like spring, it has finally come.



Printed fabric swatches
Mod Podge
Paintbrush or sponge brush
Foam board
Black acrylic paint
X-acto knife


Print some font that you like and print the letters of the word “welcome.” In my case, I did a freehand lettering of what looks like a blob of letters.

Cut out the letters and use them as templates to trace onto a foam board or thick cardboard.

Now, trace those letter cut outs on the fabric with a pen and cut them out.

Now, apply a generous amount of Mod Podge at the back of the fabric. A neat trick to protect your table from Mod Podge splatter is to lay some cling film or food wrap on it.

Press the fabric on the letter cut out and make sure there are no air bubbles.

Once the podge on the fabric is dry, apply another generous amount of Mod Podge on top of the fabric and also the edges so it won’t fray.

Get a piece of cardboard and paint it with black acrylic paint.

Cut up pieces of the black painted cardboard to fit the back of the letters. These pieces will be used to attach the string to the letter cut outs.

Next, you have to lay out the letters vertically on the table. Place a bit of space in between letters and measure the length. Then use that measurement to cut a length of string with about 10 inches more extra. Make a loop at the top and knot.

Apply hot glue and place the string at the center of each letter. While the glue is hot, put the rectangular pieces of cardboard on top to secure the string.

We can now work on the bottom part. Get some beads and just string them to the extra string at the bottom and knot the edge.

That should be the final touch to this door decoration.
