Ever browsed on Pinterest and saw beautiful signs you only thought you had to purchase or hire a calligrapher?
Below is my step by step so you can make beautiful homemade signs like the pros!
You will need:
- Slab of wood
- Printer and Paper
Find your wood, and find your font.
Print out typed words in selected size, proceed to cut out and place on wood.
Determine alignment and use a small piece of tape so it does not move on you.
Proceed to cover back of letters with chalk (any colour suits).
Trace lettering by pressing firmly with a pen or pencil or basically any hard point.
This will transfer the chalk to the board.
Continue to do so until you end up like this. Or you could fill it in completely (if you use a chalk board and just want the chalk) I chose to outline because these letters were fairly large.
Proceed to paint!
And there you go!
Your finished product!
I added some eye hooks to this board and hung it above the dessert table for my September 10th wedding.
Photos coming soon!
