Seaside Cottage Sign Tutorial


Today we're making this beautiful Cottage sign! Ready? 

What you will need:
1/4" Wood
Chalk Paint (We used American Paint Company in Uncle Sam to paint it)
Paint Brush
Pencil or Rounded Carving Tool 
Tape
Starfish


I painted the board white, I wanted it to look really crisp so it took a view coats.

Using Picmonkey I found a font and using a blank canvas and saving each letter of the word on to your computer. I think I used a font size around 2000 and print the letters so that they fill one regular printer size page. 


I trimmed away excess paper and then laid the letters out on the sign and taped it in place so it didn't slide around.


Using a pencil or a rounded wood carving tool (yeah, I don't know what it's called) I traced the outline of the letters pressing hard.

Then painted over the traced lines filling in the letters.


Using the hot glue gun  I squeezed glue onto each leg.


 Then pressed firmly onto the sign.


Follow that by placing felt pads on the back of each corner of the sign.

I tied a knot at the end of the wire and stapled it to the back of the sign. and did the same on the other side.
