For the last few years I have placed a bird cage sign out in my front yard on my hanging sign post. When I pulled out my bird cage sign this year, I knew I was ready to change it up. The bird cage sign just seemed a little dated. I had already added a few bike elements to my porch and home décor for the month of August so, I decided to keep with the theme of bikes. I found a few ideas where a bike replaced the 2 “o’s” in the word good. I decided to create my own version of this sign. The back of my 4th of July sign was blank, instead of cutting new wood and creating more crafts to store I used the back side of my 4th of July sign to create my new August sign. First I painted the wood white, while the wood was drying I measured the size and created a template using my personal cutting machine. I cut the bike design out of teal vinyl and then cut the rest of the wording and designs in black vinyl.
After my board was dry, I laid out my design and arranged it how I want it to appear on my board. I used transfer tape to place and adhere each piece of vinyl on to my board. After I had placed all of the vinyl on my board I used Mod Podge and painted a layer over my board. Last I used some scrap burlap and fabric pieces I had to create a bunting. I cut 4 banner shapes out of different color and patterned fabrics. Then I cut 4 pieces of burlap the same butting shape but an inch larger. I layered the fabric on top of the burlap and then Mod podged the burlap and fabric together. Last I arrange the banner pieces on the bottom of my wood board under the vinyl wording and design. I glued the banner pieces into place using hot glue and then glued a strip of jute over the pieces.
What theme are you using to decorate for August?
