Last week I posted about a store display that my son made using fence pickets. I had a lot of left over wood where he had cut the pickets to make smaller pieces for the front and sides of the display.
I couldn't let them go to waste, so one thing
I made was this welcome sign.
The flower is a vintage jello mold...
I cut petals using tin snips...
I painted the "flower" using a red & pink enamel paint...
I first gave it a coat of red..
While the paint was still wet, I added some pink.
This gave it a marbled look...
Once the paint was dry, I glued a yellow button to the center of the flower using E6000...
Then I glued a smaller button to the yellow button...
I painted the piece of wood using a light blue acrylic paint...
Using my Dremel, I drilled 2 holes at one end of the board
for a place to add twine to hang my sign.
I glued the flower onto the board and
glued on green ribbon to act as the
stem of the flower and leaves...
I spelled out "welcome"
using wooden discs and letters from magazines.
Once I found the letters that I needed,
I cut them out to fit the discs.
Then, using ModPodge, I placed the letters onto the disc.
I added another coat of ModPodge to the top.
If the letters were too small, I covered the disc with a contrasting color from the magazine and then added the letter to the top as seen here with the "L".
Once all the letters were completed,
I glued them onto the board using E6000.
Most of the items used to make this sign were recycled.
How do you welcome your guests?
If you're looking for a fun, easy project,
then this is one you'll want to try!
