So I went shopping and found all of these treasures:
Then I picked out my paint colors:
Folk Art- Sweetheart Pink
Americana- Spa Blue
Next, I cut out the letters with my Cricut machine. I used white contact paper and it worked great! That saves a ton of money!!
After the machine cut out the letters, I made sure I kept the inside of the R, P, and G. Then I stippled using the contact paper cut letters as stencils. It went really fast! I only had to redo the I. The first one was too light, so I changed to Sweetheart pink. It worked perfectly!
When the paint was dry, I sanded over the letters just a little and over the rest of the sign. Then I glued some large ric rac on the top and bottom with my glue gun.
Next, I added 3 little ribbon rosette's on each side to fill up some blank space. The sign already had some wire attached to hang, but I decided to replace it with new 19 gauge wire.
How do you think it looks?? I would love to hear your comments!
