Last month I shared with you a Fall Sign that I made for Thanksgiving and my fall décor. I love it so much, and love that it makes me sing and think about one of my all time favorite hyms…”Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” I had one small wall in my office/craft room that was still empty and I was having a hard time deciding what to put there…till now.
I wanted to have a permanent reminder of my favorite song YEAR ROUND rather than just around Thanksgiving. I like the way it helps to remind me and put things into perspective.
I simply took a left-over piece of wood from one of our past projects and sanded it to a nice smooth finish. I spray painted it white. When it was dry I cut out a stencil on my Silhouette that I designed and then placed it onto the board.
Then I simply made sure to cover the entire board except for the letters that I wanted yellow. I wanted the sign to be really simple, clean and fresh looking.
My board is 24 inches in length but as you can see you could shorten yours a bit if you don’t like the length. I personally like it this long with the quote only taking up a small portion of the board.
And…of course I want to share it with you. So I am sharing the stencil with you so that you can make your own Thanksgiving Sign. I also quickly turned the stencil into a Thanksgiving Printable for those of you who might just want to print something out and stick it in a picture frame.
