Wood Wedding Sign

Hello!!  May is a month of celebrations!!  Mother's Day, Graduation, Birthdays and Weddings.

Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with one of my very favorite wedding gift ideas.  I made this for my friend to give as a gift.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to design my stencils.  I cut the heart, name, date and LOVE out of vinyl.
I painted some turquoise chalk paint on my wood sign blank.  The sign is made from old fence boards.  I then used a stencil to paint the heart using a maroon paint.  I used my electric sander to distress the paint a bit.
Next, I placed the words and date where I wanted them using clear contact paper from the Dollar Tree and my Pampered Chef scraper.
I slowly painted with white paint.
As soon as I finished painting, I peeled vinyl right up.  Any imperfections are ok as I will sand and distress the sign again when the paint dries.
I love making personalized signs!

Thank you for having me on your blog today Sheila!!!
