How cute would these fairy tale reclaimed wood signs look in your child’s play area? Learn how to make one or all of them today with free movie fonts. 

The possibilities with reclaimed wood are seemingly endless – and what better way to explore them than with some creative DIY projects? With a few simple supplies and a bit of imagination, you can create your own whimsical fairy tale reclaimed wood signs that you can proudly hang in your home or outdoors!

So, I’m sure you’re wondering… how in the world did she draw out all of those fonts on those fairy tale reclaimed wood signs? Well, I cannot lie. I didn’t.

All of the typography that you see on these signs are actually pre-made movie fonts! How fantastic is that, AND I’m going to even tell you exactly where to find each and every one of them so you can make your own. πŸ™‚

Also, I cannot take full credit for coming up with this idea.  A few months back I saw a few different versions on Pinterest, and absolutely fell in love with this idea. Seriously, whoever originally came up with this is brilliant!

REMINDER: Each of these fonts that you will need to download (except for Cinderella’s Castle) are for personal use only. In other words, please do not make any of these signs with the intent of selling them. This would be a huge copyright violation, and the owner(s) of these fonts can legally come after you.

Fairy Tale Reclaimed Wood Signs

Also, one last thing before I go! I know on Facebook there were a few concerns that I screwed my signs directly into my tree. Trust me, I originally thought this was a no-no too!

However, after doing a little bit of research for myself I found that a mature tree (like the one I used) will heal and be perfectly fine. The biggest concern is when the tree is too young or is already ill with decay.

While I completely understand if this is not the best route for you and your family I did make sure to do my homework first πŸ˜‰

Have a wonderful weekend, and until next time! πŸ™‚
