Beware of Dog and Owners Sign

As a gun enthusiast, I love this sign:

But I am more worried that people need to be aware of the dog, I wouldn’t want her to get the wrong idea about someone and attack. So I created my own sign to cover both the dog and the owners.

Materials:
Square Piece of Wood
Acrylic Paint
Pencil or Stencils
Silver Sharpie
Outdoor Mod Podge or other Sealant

Directions:
1. Paint the background color onto the wood. Let it dry completely.

2. Pencil the words onto the wood. It would be easier to use a stencil, but with my spending fast I used a pencil and tried to do everything by hand.

3. Paint the words onto the board. After they are dry, outline the letters with the silver sharpie.

4. Using the mod podge as a sealant, spread it over everything. When the front is dry, do the same for the back.

Now it can be hung on the fence. Hopefully if anyone gets attacked in our yard, this sign will help save our assets.

Writing on the Wall or the Closet

I was recently watching Once Upon a Time on Netflix and on the first episode they show a glimpse of Emma’s front door and it was awesome! I wanted to copy it, and then the day after I stumbled upon this tutorial on how to do it at applestone drive.

I wanted to make it unique and special to us and I made my husband choose the song. He chose Whatever You Like by TI. He tried to choose another song afterwards that had prettier lyrics or whatever but I had never heard it before and would rather a song that we actually know, even if it is a hip hop song!

I used masking tape to make my lines so that there was less pencil to erase, and I found that alcohol on cotton balls takes off the pencil really well if you mess up. (It also takes sharpie off really well too)

I thought it turned out ok but if I were to do it again I would leave the masking tape on there for the entire time (I took it off after I pencilled everything in.) I also probably wouldn’t waste my time pencilling anything on, I was trying to copy another font but in the end it turned out alot like my handwriting is usually. I also wish I had written a bit smaller.
