Polka-dot Hello Sign

I actually managed to find some time this weekend to get some crafting done. Nothing major but I crafted! 

Here is project one that I got completed.

I wanted to make more of a statement piece for the foyer so I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do for a while now. 

After toying around with a few ideas, I went digging through my supplies.
I brought this hello sign home from SNAP, which is part of Heidi Swapp's line of products, and went digging in our extra wood pile in the basement and created this new sign.

- Wood Hello word
-Large piece of wood or canvas
-Acrylic Paint
-Glitter (optional)
-Sand Paper
-Round pounce brush
 -All purpose glue

Begin by using the round brush to paint circles on the piece of wood.
Set aside to dry.

While the polka-dots are drying, paint the hello word whatever color you'd like.

I wanted to add a little sparkle to my word since there is a window where a good amount of light comes through in the foyer, so I took some stickles and painted it on. Don't have stickles? You could use normal glitter as well.
This step is totally optional.

Not over the top glittery but enough to add some shine. Perfect!

 Once the dots are dry, take some sand paper and sand down the wood so they aren't so stark and this way it will give it a little bit of a worn, vintage feel.

Once everything is dry, use wood glue or a good all purpose glue and attach your word to your main base. Stack something heavy on top and let dry! 

It fits perfectly on the shelf by the front door. 
I snip a hydrangea bloom from one of our plants outside and stuck it in a little vase next to it.

Makes for a warm greeting when entering the house.
