Fun Beach Sign


Remember to enter my Giveaway!


I found this beach sign at GW, and thought it would be fun to craft with. I first painted it white with my recycled paint and sanded it, I forgot to take pictures of this step, of course.

I found a roll with three different patterns of paper on one side,

and three solid colors on the back at the 99 Cent Store.

I simply traced with pencil and cut the letters out. I Modpodged it to the frame

I used a sponge paint brush for this project.


I also used the wooden part to smooth along the paper making a mark as to where I wanted to sand the edges.

Lastly, I sanded the edges and applied more Modpodge to the top of the paper.
