How to make a Wooden Sign with FREE Fresh Fruit Printable

This Summer I'm all about kicking back in a slower pace of life!  I love grabbing a piece of juicy, fresh fruit for a quick snack in the summer heat.

Check out my 3 tier tray fresh fruit storage solution and How to make a Wooden Sign with a FREE Fresh Fruit Printable





Fruit makes such a great Summer snack and nothing says summer like biting into a piece of fruit with the juice dribbling down your chin!  In order for my kids to grab fruit instead of a bag of chips, the fruit has to be handy.  

I used a DIY 3 tier tray and styled it with a Fresh Fruit Sign that I made from a printable I'm offering for free.  And I'll show you how to make a printable into a sign and style it with easy fruit storage!

  • carefully apply printable to wood and gently smooth it with your fingertips
  • Don't worry if there are air bubbles- they will smooth out when the mod podge dries.
  • After it's dry, go over the top with a light coat of mod podge.  Be careful when applying so the ink doesn't smudge.  
  • Distress sign more with ink by rubbing edges with a black ink pad

    I placed my wooden sign in the top of my 3 tier tray.  I also added a little faux plant for some green.  I think a wooden bead strand or even a felt strand would also look cute in this top layer.  Looks like I need to do some shopping!  :)

    I filled the bottom 2 layers of the 3 tier tray with fruit.  I had to add a little bit of decor with a mini watering can with billy balls.  I'm all about mixing form and fuction!

    The sign kinda struggled to stay upright every time the 3 tiered tray was bumped.  In order to keep the sign from tipping over, I put some poster putty onto the bottom of it.

    Once I mashed the putty into the sign and into the top tier, it stands very well.
