Add a touch of farm to your interior design on a low budget with this DIY Dollar Store farm sign. This wooden farmhouse decoration costs only $ 5 of supplies so you can give a rustic touch to your home without breaking the bank.
The sign is made of a stretched canvas and sticks of paint. Both of which you can get for a dollar each. Paint sticks can be found in any home improvement store when the canvas came from Dollar tree. The chalk paint I got for a few dollars at Micheals with a half coupon. I used the FolkArt Home Decor Chalk paint at White Adirondack. This paint has great coverage and gives it a chalky mat finish. The chalk paint, the bottom of the shiplap and the word galvanized give it a farm charm.
This dollar store craft takes less than 30 minutes (not including the time it takes for paint to dry). It’s simple and quick to do! All you do is paint the wood and glue it together. It’s so simple.
You can add accents such as a jute knot, cotton picks or leave it as is. You don’t have to use string to hang, you can use a ribbon instead or just nail it into the wall. This sign would look great in the entrance or as part of a gallery wall. Add decorative accents and you could even use it as a door hanger to welcome visitors.

Farm sign using Dollar Tree supplies
Yield: 1 sign
Cost: $ 5
- 1 8X10 stretched canvas
- 9 1 qt. paint sticks you can find them at a home improvement store for $ 1 a pack
- 1 room rope to hang
- 1 metal word
- 1 oz chalk paint
Remove the canvas from the wooden frame by pulling it. Don’t worry about removing the staples as they will be at the back where they cannot be seen.
Paint your wooden frame and 9 of the paint sticks
Once the paint is dry, add a little glue to each end of the paint sticks and place them on the wooden frame. You can add a slight space between the sticks to give it that shiplap look.
Paste the metallic word in the middle of your sign. I added a small amount of glue under each other word to make sure it stays in place. Be careful not to use too much glue so that it does not seep through where it can be seen.
Add any optional accents you want (jute knots, flower picks, etc.)
