Read below for how to pull together this sign in just 5 minutes!
Which supplies do I need?
You won’t need too many supplies to make this sign. I love the fact that you can use leftovers from this project to make coordinating DIYs like this Sunflower and Buffalo Plaid Centerpiece or this Sunflower and Buffalo Plaid Tablescape !
Supplies needed include:
- A glue gun and glue sticks
- Artificial sunflowers
- Buffalo plaid ribbon (aka black and white plaid pattern)
- A small hello sign, or even letters made with your Cricut.
- Wooden sign (rectangular)
You can find these items at your local craft store, Amazon, or even the dollar store!
How to make this sunflower and buffalo plaid sign
Use hot glue to attach the ribbon lengthwise along the top and bottom border of the wooden sign. I did NOT run a line of hot glue across the length of the sign. I just put a dab of glue space out as I placed the ribbon down along the sign. This ensures that your ribbon will look taught.
Pull the sunflower heads off of each artificial stem. If you have a small “nub” at the back of the sunflower (meaning the part that attaches to flower to the stem), carefully cut it off with scissors so that the sunflower lays nearly flat.
Use hot glue to attach your “hello” sign at the center of the sign. If you do not have a little sign such as this one, feel free to create your own vinyl letters with a Cricut machine, or even use a stencil and paint to make your wording at the center of the sign.
Decide how to place the sunflowers on the sign, then hot glue them on. I personally liked the look of three sunflowers grouped together on each end of the sign. This also worked out well because I needed to cover up the open pumpkin cutout on this sign 😉
Place your sign on a small easel or lean against a wall to display. Enjoy!
