It has already been a super cold winter here in CO and I am definitely ready for the warmer temperatures to show their face again. You know it has been cold when high 40s and 50s feel like a heat wave!
It probably isn't a real good idea for me to already be looking forward to spring when it is the beginning of January but I am doing it anyways! So I have a super easy and quick craft for you today using Plaid's Spring Wood Surfaces available at Michaels.
Again, it is such an easy project so here is how I created it.
-Spring Wood Surfaces- frame and the word "welcome"
- Scrapbook Paper
-Acrylic paint in the colors of your choice
-Chip board or this cardboard
-527 Glue or another strong multi-purpose glue
-Double sided tape or glue stick
-Outdoor Mod Podge (optional)
spring wood surface a coat of paint, probably two actually. I used a teal color paint.
Add any embellishments that you would like with paint or otherwise. I opted to add a few white polka dots.
Here's a tip: Use the wrong end of a paint brush dipped in paint to make the perfect, same size dots every time.
While your paint is drying, time to work with your scrapbook paper.
I had an oval frame so I cut an oval a little larger than the hole of my frame.
You are going to glue your scrapbook paper to this piece to make it thicker and more sturdy for the word.
Place something heavy on the back of your frame for a few minutes to make sure the paper is glued down before flipping over.
At this point, you can give your entire sign a coat of outdoor Mod Podge depending on where you will be hanging your sign. You don't want it to get wet and ruined.
I did not do this because we have a covered porch and it is set back a little but I will probably add something to it to make it a little heavier since we do get some CRAZY winds here in CO.
