DIY Have Courage and Be Kind Sign

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.

You’ll need:

  • gold paint
  • paint
  • super glue
  • wood letters
  • wood board
  • candle
  • paintbrush
