So, I decided I wanted to make a sign for my daughter for Christmas that had the famous quote from the new Cinderella movie on it. There are so many great ideas online! I finally decided to use the same technique that I used on this DIY Love sign, to make this DIY Have Courage and Be Kind Sign. I think it turned out perfect and will go great in her new room!
I picked up all of our supplies at JoAnn. The store here in our town is going out of business so we were able to get everything for a good deal, though the selection was limited.
- gold paint
- super glue
- wood letters
- wood board
First I laid out all the letters to see how it would look.
After I thought they looked fine, I super glued them all down.
After that I painted all the edges gold. It’s kind of hard to see in the picture below, but it really it there. 🙂
After the gold paint dried, I ran the candle around all the edges. This will help in the sanding step after the top coat is painted on.
Here’s my little helper!
Then I painted on the blue color. I added a couple of coats to make sure it was nice and covered. After that I sanded the edges, so little bits of gold shine around the letters.
I really like it (and hope my daughter likes it too!) and can’t wait to hang it up in her room!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
