One More Sign.

We had one more sign to make. A Thank You sign for when we take pictures.

I grabbed another craft board from Lowes. Cut it into 9 pieces about 5’’ wide and stain them. Drill a hole all the way through the top of the blocks so you can string it up later on.


While the stain was drying I set about painting the wooden craft letters I had picked up at Hobby Lobby a Vanilla Ice Cream color. Since my dress is Ivory we’re trying that color in as much as possible.


Pay no attention to the small blocks. We used those for the back of our direction signs.


Once the blocks and letters were dry we used just a tiny bit of Gorilla glue on the backs of the letters to adhere them to the blocks right in the center.


Gorilla glue needs a little bit of pressure as it dries so we stacked the lettered blocks on top of each other and let them dry before moving on.


Nathan was great enough to run the jute string through the blocks, tying a knot at the beginning and end of the drilled holes so the letters wouldn’t slip together. I forgot to take a picture of the finished project.



Even though Murphy is showing the words on top  of each other we strung them all on one line so we can hold it between us as we posed for a sweet Thank You picture.


I think this would be a great idea for a birthday party or child’s room with their name on the blocks hanging on the wall.
