Made By Me Monday
You may have noticed THIS sign on my sidebar this week. I found it on pinterest the other day and haven't stopped thinking about it since! I decided for my New Years goal this year, I'm going to pin something from pinterest, add to my sidebar under the label "pinterest pick" and make it for the next Made by Me Monday. This will keep me motivated to keep on craftin' :)
Well, I LOVE SONIC. I needed this sign in my home and couldn't wait to get it done! So, here's how it all went down. I was at Goodwill the other day and found this beautiful sign for a whoppin' $1.50! It has great edges on it, almost like a canvas.
I was a little sad to paint over such a great vintage sign (not really!!) I went to town on it! I didn't even have to sand the top, I just started painting.
Next, I cut my vinyl lettering. In the sign on pinterest, she used a turquoise color of vinyl. But I want to keep this in my house all the time, so I went with a color that matches my home a little better.
I distressed my board a little and added a bit of glaze/stain, then while that was drying I made some cute lil' pennants to hang across the top.
These are super EASY to make. Just pick some of your favorite material and cut triangles. I actually just stapled them to a part of twine, hot glue would have been better but I was too lazy to plug it in. HAHA!
My sign is complete and I LOVE it!!
Do you want to know what I love more than this sign?
Sonic drinks, of course! It's a MUST-HAVE when crafting, in the car, working on the computer, cutting vinyl, or breathing!
half Dr. Pepper/half Coke.
