Crafty Wednesday {wooden signs}

I haven't done a crafty Wednesday post in a while because I've been busy having too much fun to do crafts this summer.  A few weeks ago I did make some wooden signs with some friends.  These were super easy to do and I think they are really cute.

 A long time ago we did a Craft Night for Branch and Bloom and made chalkboard trays.  The post on those is here.  We had a bunch of leftover wood from that craft night and I have been wanting to use it up for another project.  So I decided to make personalized wooden signs.

The wood I used was 18 inches long and 12 inches wide.  When we made these for our craft class we had the wood cut at Home Depot.  They will cut the wood for you for free which is so great!  I have a saw at home but it's so much easier if they cut it for you :)  We have had so much wood cut for Branch and Bloom that I swear the poor Home Depot workers hide when they see me coming-ha ha!

The wood was already stained from our craft night so I just taped the edges with painters tape and used white craft paint to paint the insides.  After two coats of paint I peeled off the tape while the paint was still wet.

I used my Silhoutte machine to cut out the letters.  I download free fonts from and the one I used for this project is called Watermelon script.  I used black permanent vinyl for this sign.  

I also cut out letters for my two friends and they made signs too.

This was a fun and easy favorite kind!

Happy Wednesday!
