Kitchen Conversion Sign

Maybe you're better than me at keeping it all stored in your head, but sometimes I need a little help with kitchen conversions. Of course, I remember the basics, but ask me the size of a dash or how many pints are in a quart and I may have to look it up.
So, I made a cute sign to keep the basics within eye shot.

I first stained a board with Dixie Belle's Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Denim. 
The board I used is from Signopoly.

This stain is water based so the clean up is easy & there's no odor. And, you don't have to wear gloves! 
While the stain was drying, I painted a wooden cutout of a mason jar (also from Signopoly) with Dixie Belle's paint color, Haint Blue. I used Silver Bullet with a little black detail for the lid.
I made a vinyl stencil that reads, kitchen conversions, with my Cricut Maker, then used the color Caviar to paint over it.
 I made another stencil with the conversion chart. I placed it on the board then painted over it with Dixie Belle's Clear Coat & let that dry. This will help create a barrier to prevent the paint from bleeding under the stencil.
 My favorite thing to stencil with is a makeup sponge! I used the color, Haint Blue for the chart.

 I used E6000 to glue the jar onto the board.

 Now the basic conversions are within eye shot!

  1. I could use one of these! I'm constantly googling the conversions. Great idea and so stink'n cute too with that mason jar cut out.

  2. I'm loving the denim color! Thanks for the tip on using a makeup sponge for stenciling.
