I was so super duper excited with how my fall sign turned out. I didn't take any pictures during the project, but I assure you, it's very simple.
You will need:
*Wood board of some sort (I originally pulled this board off the back of a small wood pallet-I don't even know what this type of board is called)
*Acrylic paints (I use the $.99 small tubes from the local craft stores)
*Words/phrases types and printed in various fonts and sizes
What to do:
*Start by painting the base of your board. I mixed my white with some brown to make it an off/dirty white color. Allow to dry.
*Decide on the words and/or phrases you'd like to use on your board. Then, decide on the placement of each word.
*I completely free-handed each of these words, but I used the printed words as my reference point. Using various fonts and sizes on the computer, I used those printouts to "copy" them onto the board. It does mean that they aren't as perfect as a stencil would produce, but I'm okay with that.
*Add any other decorations to your board. I painted a small leaf and then some swirly brown lines around the four corners.
*Allow to completely dry.
Our sign is a part of our fireplace mantel decoration scene. I love it!
