"C" is for Celebrate Sign & a Winner

Paint: celebrate script sign (and a winner)

A handpainted sign you can make without fancy stencils or a vinyl cutting machine.

A simple word document print out is all you need.

This celebrate sign is a great backdrop for a party and you can make it any size to fit your space.

How to make a handpainted script sign:


- 1 - 1/2" plywood (10"h x 33"w)
- ballpoint pen
- 'celebrate' print out (details below)
- pink acrylic paint
- white acrylic paint
- small paintbrush
- clear satin poly

Step 1: Print out 'celebrate' using Microsoft Word.  I used Centeria Script font at 800 point.
Lay out printout on top of plywood to fit.

Step 2: Using a ballpoint pen trace outline of letters with heavy pressure.

The pressure from the pen leaves an indent in the wood.

Step 3: Paint on and inside the indent.

Step 4: Add a shadow or highlight using white paint.

Seal with clear satin polycrylic.
