I use a wooden chopstick to carve the letter ‘J’ out of a piece of bark. It’s a process that involves a lot of trial and error, especially when it comes to the final look. Every so often someone comes up with the great idea of carving a sign in a wood box. (And we have had our share of box carving ideas in the past!) Here are a few examples on our Instagram @susana_santos
How do you use a wood sign in your home?
I enjoy using wood signs in a number of ways. My home has four rooms, which I refer to as “sinks”. In the middle of the bathroom sink there is a small table. I prefer my sign there at least 1/2″ lower than the surface of the table. That way, when the door opens, the sign looks high, and the people who are entering the room do not have to look to see it.
In the same sink, there are four smaller wooden signs (two of which I have carved) placed on the top of each other (I usually place them on top of the large wooden sign to make a “H” shape). The smallest sign I’ve made is 5′ X 4″. I place a larger sign in the center of the small sign to make a 2″ X 2″ cross. Another small sign is placed on the corner of the larger one. I like the idea of an “X” shape with the “O” being horizontal, so you get the idea.
My second favorite use of a sign is to use my large sign to hold candles to help the light from the candles stay in place. The candles come out of my “H” shape and the small fire candle goes into the center of the large “X”. This way, the fire candle can be lit easily, and the “X” shape helps keep the flame from getting out of place. A couple of others uses. Like the one above, I use the fire sign to hold up some colored balloons. When you get really into a theme – like a giant birthday cake with lots of colored balloons, you want to have lots of color, and you want to use some bright colors (as in pink or colors that bright, but also dark). I have a few different kinds of “X” shaped balloons which I make for different holidays around the world. So when the balloons are out – at work I like to have a few of the smaller “X”‘s
