Craft It: "Be Good for Goodness Sake" Christmas Sign

Happy Thanksgiving! Are you planning to get up early to go shopping tomorrow? Me neither!:) After a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, food and fun- I will be happy to stay home. I want to finish decorating the house for Christmas tomorrow.  I started a little bit yesterday. I don't have everything out of the boxes yet, but I thought I would give you a sneak peek on what I am working on:) Last year, my holiday mantle was bright red, white, silver and gold. Since I am still in love with bold contrast and mixed metallics, I am bringing that look back. But I will be adding a few new accessories.


Like this "Be Good For Goodness Sake" sign. I created it on my Silhouette Cameo using the Adhesive Card Stock. First, I painted a piece of scrap wood with red spray paint. I measured the wood and decided how to large to make the letters in order to get them all to fit. With all of the letters in this saying, I had to be precise! (The Silhouette helped with the 'being precise' part.)





Then I opened my Silhouette software, chose my favorite font, and simply 'filled the page' with the letters needed. Then my machine did the rest-- cutting the letters out perfectly. All I had to do was peel away the paper backing and add the letters to the wood. I used a chalk line to keep the letters straight. After I had everything in place exactly as I wanted, I painted over all the letters and wood with a matte decoupage from Martha Stewart. Finally, I sanded the edges of the sign to add a little bit of character.



If you don't have a Silhouette, you could buy letters from your craft store and glue them on. But honestly, it is so much easier to choose whatever font you want and then easily adjust the size for your project.
