I don’t know about you, but when I think of Spring I always think of soft pastel colors and flowers. I love adding fun signs around my home for each season and this Spring inspired DIY Vintage Sign is such a fun addition. Even though we still have snow in the forecast, inside things are bright, fresh, and full of sunshine.
The key to create a vintage looking sign is to mimic the look of layered paint. To create this look I started with an unfinished wood plaque from the craft store. I started painting on different layers of paint, allowing each layer to dry completely.
After my final layer was ready, I designed and cut a vinyl stencil using the font LW Fabulous with my CAMEO. After applying the adhesive vinyl, you can paint the lettering.
Remove the stencil and allow the paint to dry. (Optional: I also added a little black paint to the right side of the lettering with a little brush by hand for some fun shadowing.) When the paint is dry, distress the sign with sandpaper. This allows all those beautiful layers to show through.
That’s it! A fun and easy diy vintage sign.
