This is another altered project I did for my craft room. Actually, for the door to my craft room.
I bought the piece of wood already in the oval shape at Wal-Mart, then had my wonderful, handy neighbor, George, drill two holes across the top, for me to run ribbon for hanging. I painted the back, and around the sides, with acrylic paint, called Fresh Foliage. Then, I added the patterned paper onto the front with Mod Podge.
**Note -- the pattern paper is actually a color copy of the curtains for the craft room. I just took the curtains to my local copy/print shop and ask for a color copy. That way, I was able to match the sign to thing in my room.**
After the Mod Podge dried, I adhered my 'welcome' lettering and some coordinating blossoms. Lastly, I threaded dark brown, velvet rope through the drilled holes and tied knots on the front, so that I would have something to hang my sign by. (I know you can hardly see the rope, due to the photo being taken on dark background. . .sorry)
