Craft sign lettering

Remember those winter, spring, summer, fall plaques that almost became as popular as the Beatles in the 60’s?

Mom’s was plastic in a lovely shade of gold.  My aunt had a wicker seasonal set.  Our neighbor made a needlepoint set.

Mine isn’t a “set” it’s only one that changes with the seasons.  It’s a modern farmhouse seasonal sign.

First, paint a board

Scrap board

I started with a scrap board and painted it white.  The board is 5 1/2 inches wide and 21 inches long.   After two coats of white paint, I used a sanding sponge to add a little distress.

Lettering only some of the letters

Lettering for HME

Next, I create lettering for the HME only.  I have another idea for the “O.”

I went all old school for the lettering. These are my steps.

  • Print the letters {You can get my letters here if you wish. Note, to save a 1/1,000,000,000 of a drop of ink, I print in gray}
  • Next, I aline the letters added a piece of painters tape along one edge of the paper.
  • Now, I slide a piece of transfer paper under the lettering.
  • Then it’s time to trace around the lettering
  • Now for the paint, I use craft paint and my favorite lettering paintbrush.  It’s available at the bottom of this post.
  • Slowly fill in the lettering outline with paint.  The brush makes this easy.
  • Sometimes, I add a second coat of paint to the letters.

Now for the O

Laying our craft sign

Make sure to leave space for a big round “O.”  It’s a 4-inch embroidery hoop.

Wood craft sign spring

Add a small nail to hang the hoop.  Then cut a piece of twine and wrap around the hoop.  Tie on a small spray of faux greens for spring.

Wood craft sign summer

A bunch of faux grass for summer.  Or seashells! 😉

Wood craft sign autumn

A rusty leaf for autumn.

Wood craft sign winter

And a sweet bottle brush tree for winter.  Have you tried to make a bottle brush tree from a real bottle brush?
