Wood Quote Sign from Mellisa of The Life of a Craft Crazed Mom

Today is my first guest post of the summer!  It comes from the lovely Mellisa of The Life of a Craft Crazed Mom who has so many creative projects and posts on her blog.  I love the Wood Quote Sign she has to share with you all today.  Check it out!

Everybody loves a wood quote sign.  Now add the trendy ombre pattern to it and it makes it that much better!  I have quote signs all over my house and what makes a better saying than "This is our happily ever after"!  This is such a simple sign project, give it a try!!

Whenever I see wood signs of any kind, I always grab them in hopes that some day I'll come up with a project to give them new life!!  Usually there's something hideous on them, maybe from the 80's or even older!!  As ugly as it is, just remember, you can just paint right over it.  This one I paid fifty cents for at Good Will.

To start the process, I took a few shades of yellow and painted them on in an ombre pattern across my sign.

After it is dry, place your stickers on to read what ever quote you'd like.  After all of the stickers are applied, give it a coat of spray paint over the top, of course, to match your color scheme.

After your sign is dry, pull off your stickers,  leaving the ombre paint showing through.

This is a great project for you or even your kids!  These wood quote signs would also make a great gift, maybe for a wedding or a new baby.  Your options are endless as far as your quote goes.

How fun!!

So pretty, right?  I can't wait to make a bunch of wood signs for all of the blank walls we have in the new house.  The creativity must be contagious because now I am just bursting with ideas!

  2. Ditto! I'm not really a fan of landscape art, unless it's a photo. Also, I love finding the perfect quote for a space. :)
