DIY Buffalo check sign that is so easy and doesn't require painting DIY Buffalo check Sign that's easy and requires no painting at all

I had this scrap piece of wood already stained from an old project that flopped (SEEEEE…it pays to be a craft hoarder sometimes..haha!) So, it was already ready to go. If you don’t have random wood laying around- have lowe’s or home depot cut you some the size you want. This was just a plywood type board. Mine is approx. 12×12.

I found this cute little happy fall sign at Walmart for $3.88! Score! Wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it exactly until this project idea popped in my head.

I used buffalo check wrapping paper that I had from last Christmas and cut it to the size I wanted. For this,  I wanted to leave a little bit of the stained edges showing.

I simply use mod podge to make the wrapping paper stick. One coat on the wood, then put it into place and smooth it out. SO easy! You could also go back over the top of the wrapping paper with mod podge if you would like.

After that, I put a little nail right into the wood and hung my sign from it. Tied a small little bow on the nail and BAM!
