If you didn’t read about our Christmas Craft Challenge we did this year, hop over and catch up! So the first craft I want to share is the “Welcome” sign I made for my Aunt.
This is the picture she pinned on her Christmas Craft Board
I looked around to see if I could find a good deal on a frame to use for this craft but just couldn’t find one that was quite right. And then I was at Michael’s picking up some crafty supplies and came upon a plaque for $1 and said – YES Ma’am!
So I found a font that I liked and printed it off in size 100. I used a transfer method of using a pencil. First I flipped the paper over and traced the wording with my pencil. Then I flipped the paper back over and taped it to my plaque. And used my pencil to transfer the graphite from the back onto to the plaque. You just apply a nice amount of pressure going over the letters.
And this is what you end up with:
Then I took my fine tip Sharpie and just filled in the pencil.
I made a couple felt flowers using Emily’s http://jonesdesigncompany.com/tutorial/flower-pin-tutorial/. Which was super easy by the way! I made a few more for another project, we’ll talk about soon! They turned out super cute and need to make some more for pins.
So I just hot glued some flowers and TA DA – A uber sweet “WELCOME” sign!
Whatcha think?? Pretty E-Z breezy, huh?!?
