Oregon National Guard Family Programs- Portland DIY sign workshop


We are excited to share with you that Oregon National Guard Service Member and Family Support (SMFS) Office is hosting the first ever DIY Wood Sign Workshop with The Homestead Rustics & Whimsies.

This FREE event is open to ORNG Service Members, ORNG Family Members, Gold Star Family Members, Veterans, and Veteran Family Members (in that order) of all genders and dependent children 14+ (attending with a parent or guardian). Registrations received outside of these statuses will not be approved. Please limit your registration to two attendees per family. The first 30 seats for this event will be reserved for families of currently deployed Service Members, if these seats do not fill they will be opened up to the other status’ two weeks prior to the workshop. You may be asked to confirm your status if we cannot locate you in SIBX, DEERS, or as a listed emergency contact with the Family Program Office. Registration does not give automatic approval. All approved attendees will receive a confirmation email from a SMFS staff member. If the event is full you may email homestead at  and request to be placed on the wait list. This event is not open to any SMFS staff members at this time.

The ORNG SMFS Office is very excited to offer this opportunity! Please use this event as a way to unwind, have fun, and interact with other military members and families. We hope to continue introducing other enjoyable ways to connect with one another in the near future. Please do not register if you are uncertain if you can attend. The Homestead staff will make a stencil and sign board with a background painted or stained specific to your preference. If an emergency arises you are not able to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we may afford this opportunity to the next person and justify the use of funding to facilitate future events like this one.

There is a limit of 1 per person. If you would like someone to attend with you, they would need to register separately with their own information. Thank you.  


Hello! Leah & Montella here with The Homestead! We are so excited to be offering this special workshop for you. 

There is absolutely no experience necessary and you do not have to be "artsy" or "crafty" to successfully create with us.  We will guide you and help you through the entire process as needed.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration needs to be completed by March 7th, 2020 to attend this event. This allows us the time needed to make sure everyone's supplies are prepared and cut for the event.  

Your registration includes:

- A 13” round sign board to paint 

- A stencil of your choice

- All the supplies needed to create your sign

- And, of course....a great time!

By the end of the evening you will have a completed sign painted by YOU that is ready to take home and hang! 

Follow us on Facebook at The Homestead Rustics & Whimsies or on Instagram @homesteadrandw.

 We are so honored and excited to design something special for your homestead and teach you how to make and paint it!
