I started off with unfinished pine boards and painted them black.
I used my Silhouette to create vinyl stencils for the wording.
Once the black paint was dry,
I stuck the vinyl lettering on the boards
and painted over the entire board with white paint.
Once the white paint was dry,
I peeled off the vinyl lettering to reveal the black design.
Don't worry if you don't have a die cutting machine.
You can make signs using a variety of different techniques.
Click here to see some signs I made using a chalk tracing method.
Then I lightly sanded over the entire sign to distress it
and reveal a little more of the black underneath, especially around the corners and edges.
I also hand rubbed an antique glaze over the signs to give them an aged look.
Lastly, I added eyelet rings on the top of each end of the signs
and wrapped wire through them to create a hanger.
To finish off these farmhouse signs,
I tied a hand torn piece of homespun fabric into a bow on the wire hangers.
If only I had a bigger kitchen to hang one of them in.
A girl can dream, right?
I hope you are having a wonderful day and
Id' love to hear about what you've made using a die cutting machine.
'til next time,
