Here is another Baby Announcement sign I made.  This one is for the Wilson’s.  Their babies nursery reminds me of a tree house.  They painted a beautiful mural on the wall of a big tree with a couple owls perched on a branch.  I really wanted this sign to look like it belonged in that room.

So Pretty in Paint Baby Announcement Sign - Henry Lee

It is on a 9×12 board.  Fun and totally personal!  Love it!

Signature


There are so many chalkboard signs out there… and mine isn’t much different but I thought I’d share it anyways.

My husband turned 30 right before our wedding and all of our extra money went towards the wedding, so I had to get creative.  I threw him a surprise BBQ party and invited all his friends and made him a little sign to hang up outside.

This sign was incredibly easy to make and did not cost me a thing.

Supplies Needed:

  • Piece of wood
  • 4 wooden dowels
  • Hot glue gun
  • Spray paint
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Foam paint brush
  • piece of chalk
  • Two small screws
  • Two soda pop tops
  • Twine
  • Plant hook

Here’s what I did:

First:  Once I found the piece of wood I wanted to use, I used 4 wooden dowels (had on hand) and the hot glue gun to create a frame on the piece of wood.

Second: Once the glue was dry, I took it outside and covered in a couple coats of orange spray paint.  We are OSU Beavers in this house 🙂 And let this sit overnight to totally dry.

Third: I painted the chalkboard paint inside the frame and let that dry overnight.

Fourth: Screwed the screws into part of the soda pop top and ran a piece of twine through both tops and tied a big bow.

Fifth:  Found the spot outside I wanted to hang it, screwed in the plant hook and hung it up.

I finished it off with a Happy Birthday note and it was done.  Voilà !
