Easter Sign-A Tutorial


I wanted to make a simple, vertical, Easter sign. This is what I came up with.
First I painted a board a fuschia color.
Then, using my Silhouette, I made a stencil from vinyl.  I used Annabel Antique Script.
I painted each letter a different Spring color.
Here's the sign after it dried.  It's a little dull to me so I decided to glaze it.

After the glaze dried, I drilled holes at the top for the ribbon.

Then I distressed it.  If you look closely, you can see how the glaze brightened the sign.

I love this yellow polka dot ribbon with the fuschia board. I made a bow and sealed the edges with the lighter.  If you just put it close, it melts the edge to keep from fraying.

I put the "hanging" ribbon through the holes I drilled.  The ribbon is knotted in the back, to keep it in place.

Here's a close up so you can see the great effect the glaze added.

Here's the finished board with the bows hot glued on.
