Spring Welcome Sign With Felt Tulips

Hi All!

Today I am sharing a how to make Reusable Freezer Paper Stencils on Silhouette School and to show you how to use these inexpensive stencils I have made fun Spring Welcome sign to share will all of you!

 

To start my Spring Welcome Sign I grabbed a bunch of wood slats from my scrap wood stash they were all approximately 1″ x 0.5″.

Since I knew I wanted my sign to have a rustic feel I didn’t even bother to trim them down or make them a uniform size.   I laid them out so each slat jigged back and forth on either side.

To secure them all in place I used a couple of smaller pieces and some Loctite Power Grab Construction Adhesive.

I smeared a good amount all over the back of the wood from end to end so it would grab onto each slat.

And then I pressed each slat onto the others moving in the opposite direction.

Next I removed the stickers from the wood and gave it a light sanding with 220 grit sand paper.  Being careful to sand the places were the stickers were more thoroughly then the rest.  The reason why I sanded this section more is because the residue from the stickers can block the stain from adhering to the wood.

Next I stained the wood with a 50/50 mix of Weathered Oak and Special Walnut Then sealed it with a fast coat of Verathane.

Next I applied and painted my design using a Reusable Freezer Paper Stencil and these directions.

While my paint was drying I made a few Felt Tulips.  To see the full tutorial and get the pdf pattern click here.  (Full Tutorial coming tomorrow 3/17).

  1. Hello! This looks like a great project. I think you have a typo in the project recipe ingredients list? I’m betting that’s “Loctite? You can delete this comment once you fix it you want.
