Peg Board Cross Stitch Sign

DIY Peg Board Cross Stitch

Despite being homeless {or whatever}, we can’t miss out on the pinterest challenge. I mean how else is anything going to get done!


 My inspiration is this pegboard. I love the cross stitch and the quirk of this sign. (Also isn’t the pink wood table incredible?)

I bought some peg board and bi-folding door knobs from Home Depot. I had Home Depot cut it down to 43 1/2″ x 17″.

We did have to purchase small screws for the knobs since the long screws wouldn’t work on the peg board.

We went to JoAnn’s to pick our color palette. These are the colors we are planning on using in Ramona’s big girl room. The sign will eventually be in her room as a catch all for her purses and etc. since she’s 3 going on 16.

Use a pencil to sketch the outline of HELLO! unto the peg board.

I taped the end of the yarn to make pulling it through the hole easier. I didn’t get an action shot because I would lose all DIY cred if you saw the mess I was crafting in. You can see from the pattern on the back how to pull the yarn.

I used hot glue to hold the yarn at the back. Then I taped it to keep the yarn from unraveling.

I love how it turned out. It was very simple. It took about 2 hours to complete. It would be great in an entry or mud room. Everyone loves a good peg board, and this project makes it prettier and all that much more lovable.
