I know, yesterday I posted about my favorite subway are sign, but I saw this was and really liked it too, I just couldn’t help myself, I found this one over at Sawdust and Paper Scraps, a blog that is new to me that I am totally in love with. Also, my second reason for posting is because in her post/tutorial about how to make this fun sign, did you notice the spider hanging off the bottom, she shares how she made it with no vinyl! I have a Cricut and could cut our vinyl with it, but I only have a few font cartridges . . . so here’s her secret:
“Print out tons of words in different sizes and fonts.
Rub chalk on the back of each word, tape it in place and trace it with a pen. (A trick I learned here.)
Hand paint every single one of those words with a tiny brush!
(This took me 3 days!!! No joke!)”
Love it, such a great tip!! Ok, I’m off to get a whole bunch of paint and some wood so I can make my own!
