Cotton Pickin' Cute

I don't know about other parts of the country, but here in the South, just about every shop you go in sells cotton. Cotton wreaths, cotton garland, cotton stems, individual cotton bolls, all are abundant!
For this project, I used 3 of the individual cotton bolls.

I used a 1 x 9 x 14 inch piece of wood to make the sign. And, since there's a Southern theme going on, I used the color Muscadine Wine from the Dixie Belle Paint Company to paint the wood.

While the paint was drying, I picked a font I wanted to use and printed out the words, cotton pickin' cute.

I used the side of a piece of chalk to rub over the back of the paper.

I taped the paper onto the board and used a pencil to trace around the letters to transfer them onto the board.

Then I used a small brush to fill in the letters.

An acrylic frame could be glued onto the board, but I used Velcro so the the frame can easily be change from portrait to landscape.

With the frame in the portrait position I decided where the cotton should be placed, then glued it on with E6000.

I think it turned out pretty cotton pickin' cute!
