Personalized Painted Wooden Signs for Your Baby Nursery

by | Jun 24, 2020

Is there anything cuter and sweeter than a newborn baby? Tiny baby fingers and tiny baby toes. Sigh. When celebrating the arrival of precious bundles of joy, personalized painted wooden signs for the baby are a perfect way to say “welcome home.”

We’re going to spend some time today oohing and ahhing over painted wooden signs for babies. Because – I’m going to warn you – these are precious! And one of the truly fabulous things I’m going to share with you is that nearly any wooden door hanger can be turned into a painted sign for a baby with a couple added touches. Don’t worry… I’ll show you how! 

For each door hanger we talk about, I’ll post a link to my shop where you’ll find a wooden blank that you can order and have shipped to your house, ready to paint. Or, a printable template and digital cut file that you can use with PDF, SVG, etc to cut your own wooden sign at home! (Not sure what the difference is between them? Check out my recent blog post that explains all about it!)

And, don’t forget that in my shop, you can choose the size!

Wondering how I painted the flowers on the beautiful wooden sign above? Well, let me show you! I painted this on a Facebook Live , where I took y’all through how to paint these perfectly-imperfect flowers. 

In this video I also share with you some of my favorite supplies and paints. For paints, it has to be DecoArt Americana. You can find them and many of my other must-haves in my Amazon shop.

Baby Dumbo Painted Wooden Sign for Baby

I can’t decide what my favorite thing is about this Baby Dumbo wooden sign. The expression on her face – precious. Her sweet little trunk – adorable. And those too-big-for-the-rest-of-her polka dot ears – oh, please! A personalized wooden sign for a Disney-inspired baby shower? Perfect!  

For perfect polka dots, check out this blog post where I take you through it step by step. 

Hint: A quick switch of paint color for the ears and this adorable baby girl could just as easily be a precious baby boy! 

I had so much fun painting this sweet baby elephant on a Facebook Live! Check it out here

Shabby Chic Wooden Signs for Baby

Faux Pallet Personalized Painted Baby Name Wall Sign DIY Gift by Southern ADOORnment

If shabby chic is your style, and even if it’s not, you’re going to love this painted wooden sign for baby. It makes a perfect baby shower gift! 

This blank is one piece of wood, but it’s painted to make it look like a pallet – isn’t that cute?! By adding the circle with the decorative border and this baby’s sweet name hand lettered in pink, this wooden pallet design is transformed into a personalized painted sign perfect for welcoming a sweet baby to her nursery. 

I had so much fun painted this for y’all on a Facebook Live. Click here or on the video to the right to watch.
