Vintage Weathered Sign

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.

  4. Very cute.

    When you applied the stencil material did you use a transfer material? Is the stencil material tack on back or did you apply anything to help it adhere to your project board?

    1. Thanks, I created a stencil using the adhesive back vinyl and used the transfer paper to move it from my cutting mat to my wood. Once I had the letters painted I just peeled up the vinyl. Super easy. 🙂
