DIY Coastal Ship Wheel Home Sign

I have posted How To Make Nautical Ornaments a couple of days ago. An anchor, a ship wheel and a life buoy made from only cotton rope and popsicle sticks. I used the ship wheel as an ornament to my coastal home sign. A sign with the word “Home” with a ship wheel as the “o”.


Let’s see what we need to make this DIY Coastal Ship Wheel Home Sign :

  • Wood planks (I used balsa wood and kraft cardboard)
  • White acrylic paint
  • Blue acrylic paint
  • Ship wheel ornament
  • Glue


Super easy steps to do it yourself this marine theme home sign:

  1. If you have a ready wooden plank with a proper size, you can jump to step two. I used balsa wood in a small plank size, so I have to glue two of it with Kraft cardboard as the back structure.
  2. Paint the wooden plank with dark blue and let it dry.
  3. Arrange the home wording along with the ship wheel ornament into a good composition. Paint the “h”, “m” and “e” with white paint.
  4. Glue the ship wheel as an “o” to the sign. Let it dry. Finished!


It’s a great simple diy home sign for beach home on this summer. It will tie in with your nautical theme home. Very pop up blue that screams for coastal look and yet very humble sign. Hope it inspires you to make your ownΒ Nautical Ship Wheel Home Sign.

  2. Oh, this piece is perfect! I love the vibrant blue background and the way you created the ships wheel as part of the word – fabulous πŸ˜€. Sorry I haven’t visited sooner with the lovely sunshine and then looking after family I haven’t had a lot of time. I’m glad everything has settled down now and all is well again. Wishing you a lovely week! Hugs, Jo x
