Spring is such a great season that I had to pay homeage – and you know how I express myself. With interpretive dance? No. With a Mod Podge spring craft! You definitely need to celebrate something with Mod Podge too, so let me show you how I made this sign and then you can personalize it. I encourage you to, whatever you do, add lollipop flowers. They are so cute and SO fun to make. So let’s do this thing.
Gather These Supplies
Wood sign – Got mine from the Kroger Easter clearance section. $.99, baby! They have similar at the Dollar Tree.
Scrapbook paper – I used two sheets of Basic Grey Gypsy
Acrylic Paint – You’ll obviously want to match your paper. I used the following:
FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Pink, Hot Pink, Soft Apple
Gloss Mod Podge
Wood letters to spell the saying of your choice
Felt – small
Chipboard circles – 3 one-inch diameter
Buttons – 3 coordinating
Ribbon – 12″ to make flowers stems
Pencil or pen
Craft Knife and Mat or Scissors
Pink string or other to hang – 12 inches
There was a black wire coming out the top of my sign – I removed it. I traced my sign, face down on the back of the paper. I then cut the paper about 1/4″ within the tracing so that some of the paint would show around my paper when I Mod Podged it to the front. Set aside.
Take your chipboard circles and trace them. You should also cut these out just inside the lines so that some of the paint peeks out the side. Want perfect circles? Use a Sizzix Big Shot or punch (or similar). Set aside.
At this point, choose wooden letters for the saying of your choice and paint them. I chose “Yeah Spring!” and painted them Pink. Set those aside to dry as well.
Paint the sign with your FolkArt color of choice (mine is Hot Pink). I painted the edges, back and sides until everything was fully covered. Allow to dry.
While this is drying, go back and Mod Podge the small paper circles you cut out to the fronts of the painted circle shapes. Allow to dry.
Your letters are dry and so are your circles. It’s time to assemble everything! I cut small felt circles to fit the centers of my chipboard circles, and then glued those and the buttons to the fronts to make flowers. Use the tacky glue to attach the letters and the flowers in the place that you want them.
To finish the sign, glue ribbon to make flower stems and then add a string to hang. You’ve done it!
