Paint: nursery sign
The perfect decorative addition for a new baby girl.
A friend requested this sign for another friend as a new baby gift:
She saw the sign below in a gift shop and asked if I could recreate it:
I used Janda Quirkygirl font in 110 and 80 point:
Then added white grosgrain ribbon to hang the sign:
Here’s how I made the nursery sign:
1. Cut 3/4″ plywood 9″ x 6 1/2″.
Prime and paint two coats pink:
2. Use a cup and trace circles with white pencil:
3. Paint circles inside white pencil marks:
4. Print out words:
(I used Janda Quirkygirl font in 110 and 80 point.)
5. Line up words on painted board and trace letters with ballpoint pen:
The pressure of the pen will leave an indent in the wood.
6. Paint on and inside the indent left behind by the pen:
(I used dark brown acrylic.)
7. Drill holes for ribbon:
8. Seal with clear semi-gloss acrylic spray.
Thread ribbon through holes, tie knot and apply fray-chek to cut ends:
Ready for the nursery.
