I've been wanting to try my hand at sign making, I love this big JOY sign I pinned, this post shows you how to make it, I definitely want to make this soon. I was working on a much smaller piece of wood, here is my smaller version for a swap I made.

I bought these little wooden pieces in a package from JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby a few years ago. I painted it black and then I used duct tape for the letters I cut and ripped, I of course didn't go for perfect or measured any of it . Once the tape was on I used red craft paint that needed to be thrown away, I wiped what I could off and painted over it with the orange.  Once it dried I peeled the tape off and wiped on brown. The red ended up showing through, I liked the finished sign. 

I'm linking up with Tammy at Country Girl at Home.
