I wanted to share with you how I made this fun wood nautical sign – for under $20! I am our Stake Young Women Camp Director (for girls age 12-18). This year our theme is Anchored in Christ. I wanted a large wood sign that I could use to promote our theme at all our planning meetings. This sign can easily be changed to say was ever you want 🙂
We (my husband cut and I watched) cut them into 3 foot pieces, 6 total. We cut the little angled pieces off the end so they were all flush.
Then we cut (2) 1″x 2″ pieces of wood slightly shorter than the sign. I put wood glue along the boards and then screwed the 1″ x 2″ boards in as pictured. Let dry.
I bought a dark gray stain and stained the front. Because I can’t draw or write pretty, I cut the words on my vinyl cutter and made a stencil. I stenciled the words in white paint.
I found an anchor outline on the internet and blew it up really big. I printed it off in sections and then taped it together. Yes, pathetic – why can’t I just draw!
Then I drew around it with white pencil. All that was left was to paint in the lines (I can kind of do that) with white paint.
