DIYP-Make a Fall Sign

My sweet real life friend of MayDay! MayDay! is super crafty.

Every time I visit her gorgeous home, I'm inspired.

She made a cute Fall sign and I knew it must be shared!

It's very easy and inexpensive. 

Supplies:
$2 unfinished wooden plaque from WalMart
Black and white craft paint
Printer
Ribbon

First, I painted the wood black.

Then, I printed a large "W" (for my last name) and a picture of a crow (I Googled "crow clipart")

I cut the inside of the letter and the crow, so that the white paper became a stencil:


I placed the 'stencil' on top of the black plaque and painted the inside of the crow white. I used a sponge brush:


I did the same thing with the "W":


I stapled some leftover orange gingham ribbon to the back and hung it:



Love it!

is there a significance to the crow?

No, there's no significance of the crow, except for some reason, it reminded me of fall.

Oh and sometimes I eat crow (ha!)

You can put ANYTHING there-a pumpkin, a leaf, whatever!

I was John and Kate plus Eight, I believe that was the show and in there kitchen they had several plaques with crows hte background was white the crows were black. Looked just like your sign with out the letter and colors reversed. I was thinking of how I could duplicated them and then here you are. Thanks!! It looks amazing

Why the W?

Adrienne said...

What does the sign above your front door say?

Mel said...

That is cool, what a grand idea. I gotta go to Wal~Mart...

We are THAT Family said...

The 'W' is for our last name. And the sign over my front door says, "Enter as strangers, leave as friends."

Ooh, I like it...It looks like something that is actually do it yourself, somethimes projects are billed as that, but w/out blueprints & an aresonal of tools & materials it can't be done.
Thanks for sharing!
