We are finally taking our first family road trip as a family of four!

We have traveled with my bonus daughter when she was a preschooler but never as young as our toddler is now. Our toddler does not like to be in the car, ever. Even the shortest trip to a store is unbearable for her. Part of the problem is that we always seem to fail to be prepared to be in the car with a toddler. Toddlers love to move around and explore their surroundings. Strapping a toddler down in a car seat with nothing to do is just setting you and your toddler up for failure. We decided to be prepared this road trip and share our tips to help you and your family to have a successful family road trip too!

It comes to no surprise that rustic wood signs are the hottest home decor trend. They are so many options when it comes to decorating with wood signs and they are easy to make too. Wood signs are a great way to show your unique style and add rustic charm to your home.

There are several wood signs throughout my home. I think that it adds a touch of personal flair, and they can easily be changed out for redecorating.

I purchased my first elaborate wood sign on Esty but I started to make my own (beginner level) just a few months ago. The materials that I use are recycled or free. I get paint from my local hazardous waste recycling center (check your local HWRC to see if they offer free paint). Old fence board, pallets, and wood scrapes work perfectly for my wood sign projects.

I put a little collection together of wood sign ideas that I hope will inspire you on this charming new trend.
