Unique Autumn Sign

Don’t you sometimes want to let go and do weird? I did with this unique autumn sign, yesterday.

This project is soooo easy…

you don’t even have to clean your paintbrush!

And I don’t like cleaning my paintbrush…as you can see! :/

But I do like easy

and unique!!!!

So make a pile of “dead” dried-out paintbrushes.  You know the ones when you were soooo excited about your DIY project, you didn’t even think about the paintbrush until 3 days later.  Yep, I do that too! 🙂

Pick out 6 paintbrushes that are about the same size.  It doesn’t matter what the color is of the dried-on paint.

You’re just going to add on MORE paint!

Spell out A~U~T~U~M~N on the dried brush bristles.

Tip: On my first try I used only the barn red color but on the first “U” and the “M” the red didn’t show well.  So, I repainted using more autumn colors.  Use dark paint on light-dried paint and dark on light-dried paint.

I used small nails and hung my unique autumn sign directly on my old door.

A piece of twine threaded through the paintbrush holes and it would be a cool banner.  Plus the “sign” could say anything.  Fun for a paint party or children’s party.

I like two-minute projects!

    1. Chris, so funny! Inside my head even for a day would be frightening. My problem is getting it to turn off. By the way, I love dollar type stores paintbrushes. I do have a few good brushes I’ve had for years, but for most of the painting I do a dollar brush works just fine. ~Jeanette
