Express Yourself With Wooden Words


I Love You spelled out in wooden words

Wooden Words as Wall Art, Home Decor Accents, and for Crafts – a Review

Wooden words are decorative for home décor.  They are also handy for DIY craft projects. Their uses are limited only by your imagination.

Wooden words look great displayed on a wall, a fireplace mantle, or on a table, shelf or door. Or, you can attach them to your craft and home decor projects. Choose to leave them in their wood color for a rustic look, or decorate them with stain, paint or acrylic markers for your own personal touch.

Let's review a few examples in various rooms around the house.

Kitchen Decor 

A wooden sign spelling 'Gather' for kitchen decor

When considering a wooden word sign as a décor accent in your kitchen, this one 'speaks' to me as the perfect one. The word 'Gather' evokes many happy memories of the gathering of friends & family around the kitchen table sharing coffee and hours of talk. I consider the kitchen the central gathering place in my home. Hang this sign on the wall or display it on a countertop or as a centerpiece on the kitchen table.  It will add to the creation of the heart-warming, welcoming atmosphere you always have when enjoying the kitchen company of your coffee companions. 

Bathroom Decorative Touches

  1. When our daughter was recently looking for a new home, we saw these wooden word plaques in many of the homes. They were displayed above doorways and on the cabinets tops between the cabinets and the ceiling, as well as hung on the walls. They were very attractive and welcoming. I had never considered them before seeing them in such a wide variety of usage. I think my favorite was a simple "family" sign in the middle of a wall of family photos. It is amazing what a single word can convey.

  2. I agree with you, Sylvestermouse. One word can express a variety of feelings and meanings. Thanks for stopping by my collection of words in wood.

  3. Words are powerful! Just seeing the words “breathe, relax, soak, unwind” every time I entered a bathroom would likely help keep me centered, even when I didn’t have time for an actual soak in the tub. Most children enjoy seeing their names clearly marking their possessions as theirs and would love having a sign proclaiming their bedroom or play area as theirs. My favorite of the examples you have shown is definitely the “gather” sign in the kitchen. I love it!

    1. I love that Gather sign too, Margaret. I have spent many happy hours in my kitchen having coffee and chats with a friend or relative. The 'gathering' of friends in my kitchen is my favorite activity.

  4. Thanks for sharing all of these great ideas for wooden letters. My daughter-in-law gave us a large G (first letter of our last name) that she painted and fit with a ribbon for hanging on our front door. It makes a lovely door decoration.

    1. Your Letter G on your front door sounds perfect, Mary Beth. And even more special that your DIL made it especially for you. Handmade gifts are the best gifts of all.

  5. Oh I like this idea. A few years ago I bought a sign that says "anytime is wine time" for my other half! He enjoys a glass or two of this fruit of the vine. But I love the wooden letter idea. I think I could do a lot of things with this idea. Thanks for getting my crafty side going again!

    1. Happy I could give you a crafty idea, Olivia. Thanks for visiting my wooden words review.

  6. Love the idea of these wooden words. It is lovely to make a home feel warm and welcoming and these words can be fun or inspiring. Thank you for these great ideas !

    1. Wood always evokes like such a warm feeling in my, Jasmine. Combine that with a meaningful word and it makes a perfect home decor accent.
