Wood Sign - Wedding Gift

Hello!!  May is a month of celebrations!!  Mother's Day, Graduation, Birthdays and Weddings.  

Today I am featured at Sheila's BLOG with one of my very favorite wedding gift ideas.  I made this for my friend to give as a gift.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to design my stencils.  I cut the heart, name, date and LOVE out of vinyl.  
I painted some turquoise chalk paint on my wood sign blank.  The sign is made from old fence boards.  I then used a stencil to paint the heart using a maroon paint.  I used my electric sander to distress the paint a bit.
Next, I placed the words and date where I wanted them using clear contact paper from the Dollar Tree and my Pampered Chef scraper. 
I slowly painted with white paint. 
As soon as I finished painting, I peeled vinyl right up.  Any imperfections are ok as I will sand and distress the sign again when the paint dries.
I love making personalized signs!

Thank you for having me on your blog today Sheila!!!

You make it all seem so easy. Beautiful sign, and I'm sure I've seen this on Sheila's blog and commented there when you posted.
