Bushel and a Peck Signs

DSCF6563Bushel and a Peck Signs

The new sign I made for my Valentine’s Day front porch started it. I loved it so much that I couldn’t stop at just one. I made the one on my porch using a cupboard door, but I decided to use old wood from my wood pile to make more. I actually like the way they turned out even better. I didn’t have to stencil over any raised areas, making the printing look a lot neater.

The weather gave my husband a window of opportunity this last week so I gave him my measurements and he took care of cutting everything for me.

DSCF6511This is my pile of boards for the sign front…

DSCF6516…and these are for the back braces.

DSCF6527The signs took longer than normal to put together because I had to pull out a zillion staples… :(

DSCF6546After dry brushing the fronts…

DSCF6514…I used my stencil to create the magic.

DSCF6551I had quite the assembly line going on.

Enjoy!

Valentine’s Day Porch Decorating

DSCF6534Valentine’s Day Porch

As promised a few weeks ago, I am ready to reveal my Valentine’s Day decorating on my porch.

I’m pretty proud of myself because everything I made was done using things I already had.

DSCF6535This sign was made using one of my newest sign stencils. I make them myself using my Cricut. I made my sign using an old cupboard door, but I’m working on my next post showing more I made using old boards from my wood pile. I like the way they came out much better because there were no raised areas to stencil over.

DSCF6540The love sign is another new sign addition. I just happened to have a long board that worked perfectly.

I don’t want to put these signs away after Valentine’s Day so I chose colors that would coordinate with the inside of my house. I think they will work well with my home’s decorated style.

DSCF6538-001I made the rag swag with my stash of Valentine’s Day fabric. I thought it added a nice spot of color to the display.

DSCF6544And what is Valentine’s Day without roses? Yep, more things I had in my stash that were just waiting for a purpose.

Enjoy!
