DIY Rustic Sign

rustic sign

I don't know about you, but I'm all about home made gifts. I rarely visit a wedding registry or Amazon wishlist, instead opting for something special for the intended. I'm sure by now it is no surprise to my family when I show up to a wedding with a strange shaped object and a bow. So, when I was invited to the wedding of my outdoorsman uncle this February, I knew exactly what I was going to create for the happy couple. How sweet is this adorable rustic home decor sign? It has the bride … [Read more...]

Growth Chart

growth chart 003

We have all seen these before! Here is my take on the Family Growth Chart! First I cut the vinyl on the left, but then I decided to cut my last name to make it more personalized: Here is how I made it, from start to finish: 1. Paint your wood and let it dry completely 2. Measure every inch on the board and mark it lightly with a pencil. 3. Add your vinyl numbers and paint or mark each hash tag. This seems like it would take forever, but it is actually easier to draw each mark than … [Read more...]
