Here is what I used:
– Paint (White, Pink, Yellow & Green)
– Sandpaper
– Paintbrushes
– Wood
Vinyl (any color will work)
Transfer Tape
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Weeding tool
– Cut File (I used this file)
– 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.

I used this Ice-Cold Lemonade design.   I imported the file and created a stencil in my software program.  Then, I cut it out of vinyl, weeded out the negative space, and used transfer tape to apply the design to my board.

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.
