What you Need to DIY a Double Sided Sign

  • 1″ x 10″ or 1″ x 12″ Common Board – you can use scrap wood
  • lattice strip – for trim
  • Saw – I used my table saw.
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Wood Glue
  • Nail/Staple Gun
  • Paint or Stain

Decide what size sign you want, mine is 20″. Using tape measure and pencil mark your 1″ board. Cut the board on your mark. You can use a table saw or miter saw

Cut wood to size with table sawCut the lattice strips. I used the lattice strips to trim out the common board. I measured the ends first and attached them, now measure the length, which includes the end pieces. To attach the strips, I added wood glue to the strip before nailing. Stack a  1/2″ board as shown in step four in the photo below to gage the alignment of the trim. (See photo below)

Paint or stain the board. I used chalk board paint for mine. The lattice strips were primed, I just let them white.

  1. I don’t know which side of the sign I like best. It’s great that the “Gather” side can be used at any time of year and then at Christmas, simply flip it to the holiday side.
