Paint the stripes whatever colors you want.
While you wait for the stripes to dry, cut out a bird silhouette from some scrapbook paper, and decoupage on the wood. You can sand all the edges down for an aged appearance. To hang you can drill two holes and put some ribbon through or just attach the ribbon with two screws in the back. I think it looks very spring like. You could also add your initials above the bird or "Welcome" to it if it looks too plain.
I had fun creating this and I hope you try it too, adjust the colors or use a different image to reflect your taste.
