When we bought our new house, my cousin Danny gifted us this beautiful handmade rustic sign. It’s super simple and can be made with just a little bit of paint and stencil if you need it. So get yourself some boards, wipe it clean, and get ready to paint!
Materials you’ll need:
- Wood serving board
- Black & white craft paint
- 2 brushes of different thickness
- Stencils (if you don’t want to do freehand)
- Picture stand
Step #1 – Paint the base of the board black.
Go around the edges first and then fill in the middle. Let dry.
Step #2 – Do a second coat of black.
Go over the black again. Let dry.
Step #3 – Trace the words.
Danny is an artist so she did this freehand. Feel free to practice on computer paper. You can also use these amazing stencils!
Step #4 – Paint the words white.
Using a thin brush, trace the letters with white paint and let it dry.
Step #5 – Do the second coat of white paint.
Go over the letters again and let dry.
Home Sweet Home is a great sentiment but here’s a list of other things you can write:
- This is us
- be our guest
- Family- friends – love
