Hello! Hello! It’s Melanie and Steffany from Find it, Make it, Love it, here to say- Happy Spring everyone! It’s totally official that it’s Spring now, even if the weather here in Utah doesn’t show it……at least not everyday. I have to remind myself every year that snow, rain, and some sunshine are all normal parts of Spring here…. whether we like it or not. So in honor of those warm Spring days, Steff and I are excited to share this super cute Spring framed plank sign.
These framed planks are coming out at the Wood Connection this Thursday. They are brand new. Are you dying?! We are–they are so awesome! We have so many ideas for these things! They come in a few different sizes and are just so perfect. We are so excited to get our hands on a few more!
Let’s get started with what you need to make this SPRING version:
- Framed plank
- Small letters to spell SPRING
- 5 different paint colors for the letters
- White paint
- Masking tape
- Foam brushes
- Paper and bakers twine (for the banner)
We went with bright, fun rainbow colors for our letters. (The colors we used are: Think Pink, OJ, Crocus Yellow, Leaf Green, Sea Foam, and GP Purple.)
Set that aside to dry.
Now for the paper banner. So easy to make, but we will show you exactly how we got the perfect triangle in the perfect size, because I sure as heck can’t free hand a dozen triangles. Or even one that looks right-haha! Start by cutting a square of paper that is 1 1/4″ by 1 1/4″. Fold the square in half. Then cut from corner to corner, be sure NOT to cut the folded side. When you open it, you’ll have a perfect little triangle for a banner! Use that triangle as a template- trace and cut each one out.
Using a small hole punch, punch two holes into the top of each triangle. String bakers twine through each one creating a tiny paper banner.
Isn’t it bright and cheerful?! And are you crazy excited to get your hands on a couple of these framed plank signs too?! Head on over to Find it, Make it, Love it to enter our Wood Connection giveaway! You could win a $25 gift card to the Wood Connection!
Here’s hoping for some sunny Spring days!
