Today, I’m re-posting one of my all time favorite summer projects. In fact, this is probably one of my most popular projects, ever! This sign was easy to make and is so cute for summer!

Here is what I used:
– Paint (White, Pink, Yellow & Green)
– Vinyl (any color will work)
– Transfer Tape
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Weeding tool
– Cut File (see below)
– Paint for Distressing (Optional)
Here is how I made it:
I started out with a piece of fencing. It’s kind-of rough and I thought it looked like the perfect type of wood to use. I cut two piece that were 21″ and glued them together.
Next, I painted it white.
I looked online for ideas and finally came up with this design. I learned some new tricks in Photoshop and Illustrator to create it and I love it! I cut it out of vinyl and used the negative space to create a stencil.
I just used pink, yellow, and green to fill in the design.
After the paint dried, I removed the vinyl
and sanded it down to make it look slightly worn.
I thought it was a little too bright, so I mixed some brown and yellow paint with water and brushed it on the sign. I left it on for about a minute and then wiped it off.
What do you think? Does it make your mouth water?
