Most of you probably know this method, I personally remember my mom using it when I was a little girl. She is pretty cool like that, very crafty.
The best part is ANYBODY with a computer and printer can do it! You don't need a fancy cutting machine or a projector, just your printed words and a pencil.
So let's see how these cute little signs were whipped out. I like to call them my subliminal message signs!
Gift crates. I thought to myself, "Perfect!"
I then went and printed some words, I chose the nice straight font for be good and a little more fun font for be happy.
You are making a sign!
Now, on to the painting.
Here they are both painted! Notice my awesome skilz...I knew those toll painting classes I took as a kid would pay off!
At this point you could be done, but I wanted to add some pop.
here, I chose to use same colors I used to make the stripes. I also did the Monogram Blocks in the same colors.
One more thing to do,
When I was making these my kids were watching the process and I showed them some things on the internet and explained what distressing was. Making things look old was one way I described it. It has been fun to see them recognize things that are distressed and hear them say, "Hey! They made that look old!" My kids are so cute!
Now you have no excuse not to make your own sign, it is super easy and super fun!
I will be linking to these parties.
