Spring Sign

In case you missed this last week during my blog swap with Life as Lori, here is my Spring Sign.

Spring is almost here on its way and that makes me excited. I find at this time during the year, I crave color. I was wandering through the grocery store the other day and I happened upon this cute green sign. Now, I am a fan of glitter, but I wanted it to look a bit more "springy" with some other colors too, so I decided to alter it!


I started out by lightly sanding some of the glitter off of the original sign. Did I mention I think I have seen these in the unfinished wood/craft section of the Dollar Store? At least they were similar and it would save you a step. Also, I wanted my sign the green color, but you could paint it whatever color you would like before moving on.

I then traced the letters onto scrapbook paper.


I cut out each letter.


Here are my letters all cut out.


I used Mod Podge to glue my letters on to the sign. It was a bit tricky with the glitter behind the paper, but all I had to do was hold the paper on it a bit longer. It all worked out in the end.


I used chipboard, more scrapbook paper and my Cricut to cut out the phrase "has sprung."



I also Mod Podged the scrapbook paper to the chipboard after I had cut it all out. If you don't have a Cricut, I have seen adorable chipboard letters in the scrapbook section of many stores.


I glued my chipboard letters on to the front of the sign for added dimension.


I also added some little pearl stickers in a few different places.




Happy Spring, Everyone!

  51. I rarely drop responses, but I read a few of the remarks on
    this page "Spring Sign". I actually do have a few
    questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or does it seem
    like a few of these remarks come across as if they are left
    by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to follow
    anything new you have to post. Would you list of
    every one of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
    linkedin profile?

  64. Everything typed was actually very logical. However, consider this, what
    if you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post title to maybe grab people's attention?
    I mean "Spring Sign" is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything've
    got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
