Now for my tutorial…

Bloom Sign

kitchen 038

We have an AMAZING craft store where I live….which is where I bought my pre-cut wood to create my Bloom Sign, but you could easily cut it yourself!

You’ll need:

*Acrylic Paint {Black, 2 shades of Green, Cream, Yellow}

*Fine Glitter {Green & Yellow}

*Scrapbook Paper {3 different pages}

*Vinyl Lettering {Where You Are Planted}

*Wood Glue

*Mod Podge

*Foam Brush

*Sealant Spray

If you are cutting your own:

*2x10 Pine Board {to cut your “B”, “L”, “M” & Flowers}

*1/4'” thick pine board to cut flower embellishments

*2x4 to cut base flowers sit on

*Scroll Saw

Now, to get started…..

*Lay your letter “B” on your chosen scrapbook paper.

*Trace your letter {making sure the front of the letter is facing down}

*Cut out the letter “B”, just inside your lines.

*Paint your wooden letter “B” black {this may take a couple of coats"}

*With your foam brush, brush a coat of Mod Podge on the front of your wooden letter.  Apply your scrapbook paper “B” and smooth out, so that there are not any bubbles.

*Set aside to dry.

*Once Dry, sand all of the front edges with sand paper.  This will sand off all of the extra paper hanging off the front of the letter.

*Lay your letter “L” on your chosen scrapbook paper.

*Paint your flowers {tops cream & bottoms green}

*Paint base flowers sit on black

*Paint the flower embellishments {yellow and light green}.  When the paint is still wet on the front of the embellishment, dip in your glitter.

*Apply the vinyl lettering to the base the flowers sit on.

*With the wood glue, glue the embellishments onto the flowers.

*With the wood glue, glue the flowers onto the base.
