Yesterday, I shared some pictures of our Christmas Tree Lot Entryway and today I am going to share a bit more about how I made the sign. I think signs like these appear much more difficult to make than they are. At least they did to me!...
I created the graphic on PrintShop by using a truck graphic and some letters for personalization. PrintShop is the very first graphic programs I ever used many years ago, and I still use it on occasion. I then enlarged it using Blockprint.com....
We didn't use pallet wood for this sign. We used 1x3 pine boards. First, we (meaning Billy) screwed them together, creating a rectangle.
Next, since I wanted the sign to have an oval shape, I traced the oval that I had printed out and Billy cut it out using a jigsaw.
I then painted the signs white and used the chalk trace method (like I did here) to transfer the image to the oval. I then went over and filled in with red, green, silver and black Sharpie oil based paint pens.
It certainly isn't perfect, but I kind of like that about it.
Here it is in our Entrway...along with the other small signs I painted.
