Lucky as Can Be St. Patricks Sign

In trying to keep with my Lucky theme for my St. Patrick’s Day decor I made this little Lucky board to sit on my shelf.  This one is so super simple and quick!

Lucky wood board

First start with a board and paint it white.  Then pick a really cute piece of cardstock and cut it to the size you want.  Then using Mod Podge adhere it to your board.  Here is my board with my cute paper

Wait for the Mod Podge to dry then add a cute vinyl word.  My vinyl says “Lucky as can be!!”

Add some Mod Podge over the top to seal everything together and let dry.  I think this turned out so cute and took no time at all!

DIY Sticky Stencil Love Sign

Wooden signs are all the rage right now.  They are so easy to make.  I used my Cricut to cut out the word LOVE using a sticky stencil.  You could use vinyl, too.  I did a sticky stencil so I can use it again.
You can use any paint for this project. Just make sure that both colors are the same type of paint {e.d.g.,spray paint, house paint, and tole paint}

Start out by painting ALL the wood white.  ***I had a craft fail {pictured}, so learn from me…paint the WHOLE sign because I didn’t and you can kinda see where I painted it.i PHONE PICS 2012 1121Next apply your stencil or vinyl.i PHONE PICS 2012 1123 Finish off by spray painting the whole sign again.  Remove your stencil and let it dry.i PHONE PICS 2012 1189 These are great to use for any occasion.

Joy Sign Mask with Sticky Stencil

Have you seen the darling signs all around that have just a word or two on them?  Well I wanted to make a Christmas one for my front porch.  I started out with an old piece of wood that I found on one of my thrifty finds from the junk yard.  Have you ever been to the junk yard?  The one where I do my picking has lots of old wood for way cheap.  I’m sure that there are many different ways you can do these but my friend and I decided to make a sign using the sticky stencil so we could use it over and over again.  All I did was pick out the font I liked then double cut {the sticky stencil is a little thick} each letter out with my electronic cutter.
Here is my wood with the letters JOY on the board ready for some paint.
I love that the letters stick to the wood and make it so easy to paint.  I chose to leave the letters the color of the wood and then spray painted the rest white.  This was a little tricky because the wood was so porous that it sucked the paint right in.  I wanted to keep painting but I knew if I did then it would seep under the letters so, have some patience and do it light to avoid that problem.
It was crazy because the paint wouldn’t cover as well as I would have liked, but it ended up working out.  After the paint dried I pulled the letters off and then sanded it just a little to give it a softer look.
The smaller piece of wood is my friends and she painted her board white and then used the other part of the stencil that I didn’t use and painted hers red. Sorry, no pic of this stage.
I love how this turned out.  I can’t wait to set this out when I get my Christmas stuff up.
Note:Thanks to my friend for letting me stage this since I still have my Thanksgiving decor up!
Look how cute my friends turned out, too.
What word would you put on your sign?

Fall Sign by Kaysi

Hi again, it’s Kaysi from Keeping it Simple.
When I decorate for the holidays, I immediately turn to vinyl.  I know that I can make the sayings or characters that I want easily out of vinyl.  Please there are so many colors, I can always find some that work perfectly.
I have a ladder that I like to decorate for each holiday.  I decided to make some wood blocks and decorate them to say fall.  It was so easy and quick and I love the colors!
