One of my favorite sites to find graphics is Graphics Fairy. I have used her graphics on many of my previous projects including, Jar Labels, 4th of July Banner, Dishtowel DIY, and Tea Towel Printable. As I started planning my decorations for the Fall season I went back to Graphics Fairy for inspiration. The Thankful Sign was a perfect project to use two of my favorite things; spray paint and stencils. Lately I have spray painted chairs, shirts, signs, and picture frames.
My fall decorating theme this year is centering around white and gold. The first project was a sign to sit on the mantel of the den. I started with a scrap of wood left over from a recent remodeling project. I used a gray stain to prepare the board for decoration. I cut the design out and white washed it onto the wood.
I loved the way this looked but thought it needed a little more. I used a Silhouette to cut out the word. I used vinyl as a stencil.
I then applied the vinyl to the board and taped it for a coat of gold spray paint.
After letting the spray paint dry I removed the stencil and the project was finished.
I love how the project turned out but had a hard time photographing it. The letters where shiny and difficult for me to capture their wonderfulness.
