Making Vintage Signs

| | |

Sharing helps others too!


Vintage inspired signs are popular.  Hugely popular.  Vintage sales, antique markets, or junk markets are filled with vintage-inspired signs.

Here in Arizona, we have a Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market a couple of times a year.  I go every time.  Every time the booth with vintage-inspired signs is the busiest booth of all!

I will be sharing tips for making vintage signs easy.  Follow the tips and let’s make money too!

The Junk in the Trunk is the best vintage market we have in Arizona.   You can see photos here and here and here.



The workshop

The workshop is free to all subscribers to Country Design Style.  We do an online workshop once a month.  Learned a new technique or make a project.  If you’re not a subscriber…why not??  We have a great time.  You can join us by clicking here.

What is it about vintage signs they we adore? I'm hosting an online workshop to share easy tips to creative vintage inspired DIY sign in farmhouse style. Click to read more and register for the free webinar. Country Design Style

This is just one of the signs your can make during the workshop.  All attendees will have several templates and techniques to make different signs.

One of the templates will have a fleur de lis I drew on the piece of wood about 18 years ago.

I don’t toss anything!

But I never know when I just might finally use it! 🙂  I drew it out on the computer.

Update sign

We are learning to make vintage inspired signs on our next workshop. Want to join us? This sign I just finished and had to add. Country Design Style

Okay, I normally do not update a recent post with a totally new image…but I had to share this French Market sign with my little fleur de lis.  Took 15 minutes to make.


I use a website called Big Marker for the workshops.  I like it because it’s easy for readers to join the webinar.  There is nothing for readers to download from Big Marker.  Plus you can set up your mic and camera and share your projects as you’re creating!  How fun is that!!!

You can read more about the Design Workshops here.

All attendees receive a list of supplies to complete the project a week before each workshop.  I truly hope you join us and find the DIY in you!

See you online!
