Wicked Chicken Spring Décor Sign

wicked chicken 1

I was browsing around on Etsy on found this darling sign here.  I loved the saying on it! However, it didn’t really match any of my home décor but I knew that I wanted something similar to it. I kept thinking the saying is really a perfect saying for Spring and Easter. I decided to make my own and freshen up the colors for spring.  First I grabbed a medium size board from my scrap wood pile. My board is about 12″ by 24″. I painted my board a teal blue color then cut 2 cardstock templates using the silhouette machine.  I cut the chicken first he measures 12″ by 12″. Then I cut the wording on cardstock also, I taped 2- 12″ by 12″ cardstock sheets together to create the wording template. Next I taped the chicken template onto my board and painted my chicken white.  After the chicken was dry, I taped the wording template over the chicken.  Yes, I had taped every little center of each letter on the board too!  When I make larger pieces like this I find using a paper template lays against the wood better.  I have tried contact paper but have found It works really well for smaller projects.  I felt I wouldn’t be able to get the contact paper smooth enough on this large of a wording project.  Then I would have a lot of bleed through to touch up. So, I stuck with a paper template. I sponge painted on the words and let them dry.  Then I removed the paper template and gave the board a quick sand to rough it up a bit.  Here is my new fun Wicked Chicken Spring board.

    I admit I’ve not really wanted a Silhouette machine, but now my creative juices are flowing and I’m thinking of all kinds of inexpensive and easy projects that I could do. Love the way this project turned out for you.
