I wanted to redo the gallery wall in my living room, so I set out to find a few new wall art decor to freshen things up. After gathering some things, I still wanted something big and bold to add some interest to the wall, so I made this Forever sign. I love these quick DIY pieces that have a big impact! Here is how I did it.
- Wood board
- Craft paint
- Paint brush
- Vinyl letters (you can get all sorts of types on Etsy here!)
Before you begin, make sure to select your phrase and then pick a piece of wood that fits. It doesn’t have to be exact, but we recommend leaving an inch or so boarder around the entire phrase. You can get your piece of wood cut for you at the local hardware store.
Step 1: Paint the board. Paint several coats and let dry.
Step 2: Remove vinyl letters from the carrier sheet with painter’s tape.
Step 3: Arrange vinyl on the board so that it’s straight (you might need a ruler). Smooth down to adhere the vinyl to the board.
Step 4: Remove the painter’s tape.
You’re done – you can choose to add a clear finishing coat to the top, but you don’t have to.
