Are your kids in need of some summer rule refreshers? Oh my goodness, the good and bad of summer break.
To make this sign I used a wood wall hanging I found at Salvation Army. It had indvidual little phrases in the squares.
I covered the entire thing in thick gloppy left over chalk paint. Once dry, I spray painted the plaque with Rustoleum’s paprika.
Once dry I used two different sizes of my kids foam alphabet stickers to create the words. I had to modify some letters to make a few other letters...
Once all the letters were on, I did another 2 coats of paprika. After dry, I sprayed the sign with a light blue and a few light layers of brown. I only sprayed the brown from the right side of the sign. Since the letters were raised, this created a shadowed region from the letters where the blue stayed visible in a uniform shadow on the left side of each letter.
I removed all the stickers while the brown was still tacky. Sanding smooth created a dimply appearance with the orange and chalk paint showing thru. I added a new piece of hemp to hang and sealed with poly.
If your kids need to read these rules, let me know and we'll get it on your wall!
