I mentioned to a crafty friend at church, Sharlyn, that we were long overdue for a craft night but I had run out of ideas. She suggested making painted wooden signs and offered to provide all the materials if I hosted at my house. Deal!
This is the idea that she found online.
I didn’t have much to do other than set out some drinks and snacks for the 8 ladies that signed up to come.
Sharlyn brought the prepared boards and precut vinyl and the ladies affixed the vinyl to the boards. (It was actually a multi-step process that involved carefully removing the letters with tooth-picks to leave the reverse image, adhering transfer tape, affixing the vinyl to the wood and removing the transfer tape.)
Then we painted the words, using the vinyl as our stencil.
When we were done painting and peeled off the vinyl, we had lovely signs.
Here’s a closer look at mine.
Look how cute it looks on my mantel…
I love it. It was a fun night of creating and fellowship with some of my favorite people (although I missed a few women that couldn’t make it)! I look forward to hosting more craft nights with Sharlyn in the future.
