DIY Faux Metal Wall Signs

Vintage metal signs and marquee signs are all the rage right now. You can literally find them gracing the shelves of every home décor and craft store. Corey from Sawdust 2 Stitches found a way to replicate the look using plywood, carriage bolts, and spray paint. Corey only paid $4 to make both an arrow and EAT sign since she already had the wood on hand. I am totally obsessed with arrows and would love to snatch that one right off Corey’s wall!

How to Make a Faux Metal Sign

Corey was inspired by pieces like the Arrow Marquee from PB Teen.

Awesome article! I love vintage marquee signs like this, and have been wanting to make something for the kitchen. I liked her "eat" sign, but I may want to go with something else, I'm not sure what. It's good to know how to make these now, though :)
