Farmhouse Sign

Tuesday, February 07, 2017

  This little farmhouse sign was so easy to make.  Simple cut a small board or purchase a ready - to - decorate sign and stain it in any color you prefer.  Then just print the word farmhouse on regular copy paper making sure the font is the proper size for your project.  You may need to print on multiple pages and tape them together to get the full word as large as you need it.  Now the fun part!  For light colored wood, color over the entire back of the word with a pencil.  Then flip it over and position your word correctly over the board making sure to center it properly.  Then trace firmly around each letter.  This will transfer the pencil on the back perfectly to your new sign.  For darker wood try chalk on the back, and for very soft wood like pine, skip the coloring of the back and simply trace the letters very firmly.  This will leave a nice impression or outline of the letters.  Now you will just take a paint marker and fill in the letters by hand!  If you wish, once it has had plenty of time to dry, you can add a poly finish or other sealer of your choice to finish the project!
