DIY Farmhouse Decor – “Gather” Sign Tutorial

I’ve been seeing farmhouse signs all over, and I had the perfect spot for one. BUT… either I couldn’t find one that fit the space I needed, or I didn’t want to spend boo-koo’s of money on one.

So I took matters in to my own hands, and headed to Menards, and ordered letters online.

Cut board to size, use letters as a guide

Custom Letters

I started by going to I’ve been ordering letters from this website for years for decor and craft projects. I ordered a big G for my son’s room, and had a FANTASTIC experience with them. So I decided that since I can’t draw worth a hoot, ordering letters for this sign would be the best bet.

I love ordering from them because I can select whatever size, font, letter color, type of material, etc. AND you get to preview it before ordering it, so you know what it’s going to look like! (This is totally not a plug for I just really enjoy ordering from them for these types of projects, and I wanted you to know about them for your own projects!) You can pick your letters to spell anything you like, but for this space I knew I wanted it to say “Gather,” since it’s the main room in our house where we gather with friends to eat! #foodislove

Line up the letters and then paint

Board Selection

I simply measured the space where I wanted the board, and when I went to Menards, I looked for a board that would fit the space the best. The board I picked out was actually way too long for my space, so I (ahem, my husband) cut this for me with his miter saw.


I chose bright white paint for the board, to fit right along with the farmhouse look I was going for.

Tip for Placing Letters Perfectly

Once the board was painted/dry, we placed the letters on the board with glue dots to make sure they were even. They stayed on long enough to hot glue them for a permanent solution.

Use glue dots to position letters


That’s it! It was an affordable way to make the sign that I was dreaming of for the breakfast nook. Once it was finished, I attached it to the wall with Command Strips. I love those things. They’re are ALL over my house.
