Dowel Sign Craft

Supplies Needed:

  • Dowel Sticks
  • Drill and Drill Bit (I used the smallest drill bit I had)
  • Waxed Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors

Decor Supplies that I used:

  • Celery Green Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Wood Beads
  • Artificial Flowers


I first lined up my dowel sticks and measured an inch from both ends. I marked with a pencil where I wanted to drill.

I then used a small drill bit and drill two holes in the sticks. I will say this would work better with bigger dowel sticks, but it did work with the small ones as well.

Once all the holes are drilled in the sticks, I used thread and needle to gather them together. I made a knot to secure the bottom and sewed through the drilled holes. Once all the sticks are together I tied a knot at the top to form a hanger for the sign. Once this was finished I painted the sign with an acrylic paint.

To decorate the sign I hot glued wood beads with the hole in a vertical direction. Once they were glued on I added small flowers in the holes. You could also add flowers to the top and bottom of the sign as well.

I hope you give this craft a try! Comment below if you do or with any other craft ideas!
