I have been seeing these rustic wood trimmed signs all over the place. I have fallen in love with this look! One of the things I love about the rustic trend that is happening, not everything has to be or look perfect. The weathered wood, over run paint and even texture gives these projects so much character. It is also a crafters dream to have a little paint run or not have it come out perfect and to be able to say oh I made it that way on purpose (wink wink)! I decided to give one of these wood trimmed signs a whirl.
I dove into my wood pile and choose 3 pieces of my hard wood flooring leftovers, I glued them together and cut them down to size. I found a few pieces of leftover tack strip that I measured and cut to make the frame for my rustic board. I decided at this point I was going to give this sign to my friend for her birthday. I did a little searching on the web and found this quote I knew she would love. I am sure you have all seen or heard it before, I knew the “Come what may & love it” would be very fitting for her. I decided to paint my board white and the 4 trim or frame pieces red. I set up a template with the quote on my personal cutting machine using 2 different fonts and resized some of the words in a fun way. I cut most of the wording in black vinyl and then cut the word love in red vinyl. After the paint was dry I centered the wording and applied it on to the board. Last I used liquid nail glue to attach the red trim or frame to my trendy rustic sign. I love how it turned out and can’t wait to experiment with other designs and quotes.
