Y’all there’s a quick way to customize a wreath and turn it into a special one for any occasion….use wreath signs! But how do you attach wreath signs so they are secure and look naturally placed?
How to Attach Wreath Signs
An easy way to customize your wreath quickly is to attach a wreath sign to it. Adding a festive accent sign to your wreath is a simple method for converting your everyday wreath into a wreath for any (and every) occasion.
Wreath signs are a simple, festive accent that can definitely get you into the spirit for any event. It’s almost like an accent sign is the wreath-making world’s version of the easy button!
So how do you make a wreath with an accent sign on it? Pick (or make) your wreath. It can be anywhere from simple to elaborate. Once you have your wreath created, all you have to do is attach your sign to complete the look.
Then with every changing season (or holiday), remove the sign from your wreath and attach a new sign.
Alternatively, adding a wreath sign to a season-specific sign can elevate your design and add even more visual interest. Adding a wreath accent sign is one of my favorite tools in my wreath-making arsenal belt!
Use a light weight hammer! Simply place the tip of your nail onto the back of the metal sign and give it a few light taps with a hammer until the tip of the nail pierces through the metal…
The hammer and nail set! Use this tool specifically designed for starting holes to tap a small hole into your signs!
A metal hole punch! (The easiest method!)

Can You DIY A Wooden Wreath Sign?
Yes, you can make your own wooden wreath sign. While it isn’t necessarily hard to do, it does take time.
For the everyday crafter, there are several steps involved in creating a DIY wooden wreath sign:
- Cutting the wood
- Designing the layout
- Painting the sign (sometimes several times)
- Add any lettering or images
- Coat with a protective top layer
- Attach sign to your wreath
The entire process can take hours to days, depending on how elaborate the design is. Since it’s a time-intensive process, it’s much faster to simply purchase wreath signs. In my opinion, it’s much better to spend your time on making your wreath and simply purchase the sign.
Now that there are so many affordable wreath signs available to purchase, buying one is much faster and easier than making your own.
I try to save my time (and sanity!) where I can and buying things that are both affordable and save myself hours of work is definitely at the top of my list.
However, after spending hours of work on creating a beautiful custom wreath, the last thing you want to do is cheapen your work by slapping on any old sign. After years of designing wreaths, I’ve narrowed down my list of favorite places to shop for wreath making signs.
Here are some of my go-to places to buy affordable wreath signs.
