Part 2 – This is the reverse side to Hello Spring!
Welcome Summer Sign Gives Your Porch A Citrus Burst! This is part 2 of the reversible porch sign we did earlier. If you missed it i have it linked above for you.
Welcome Summer\Hello Spring is made with a stained common\pine board. Then I used masking vinyl and painted this side. You could also paint this side of your board white or any color of your choosing!! The file is setup for 12″ x 60″. However, size it to the size you need. I ended up with 12″x48″ Have fun with the colors!
This weeks FREE Summer Porch Sign SVG/Cut files can be found in the Freebie Library. File number is 38. I have also created a video tutorial along with some quick directions below on how I made this FUN Welcome Summer Sign. I would love to see the color choices you used!

Video Tutorial – Let’s make a Summer Porch Sign!
Here are the steps I took to make the Welcome Summer Sign
Step 1 – Prep your board. If you are doing the reverse you should be set to go. However, if you decided you wanted paint vs stain you would do that now.
Step 2 – While everything is drying(if needed). Open the SVG file in your cutting software (note: if you have the free version of Silhouette studio you will need the DFX files). Size the sign according to the board you will be working with. Use your masking vinyl to cut out your design.
Step 3 – Once your stencil is cut weed your vinyl. Remember you ware weeding the parts you will be painting.
Step 4 – Arrange your pieces on your board. Remember that Summer will be down a little more more since Welcome goes at the top. You can make and apply as may citrus slices as you like!
Step 5 – Now to stencil paint your board. Since I stained my board I need white under the everything. So I did to coats of white and then stenciled my citrus slices in my colors. I found I needed to coats of that as well. Pull your stencils mask and clean up your slices.
Step 6 – Now apply Summer and welcome to the sign and repeat the paint process. Again, i needed white under summer. I used a color shifting paint for Summer. That took 4 coats before i felt I had good coverage. Once you have your last layer applied pull your stencil vinyl. Clean up any edges you might have.
Step 6 – Once your sign is completely dry spay it was a clear sealer of choice.
Step 7 – If you so desired you could add strips around the sign to give it an extra touch.
