Welcome sign REpurpose

See this little guy, in the picture below?..

Well, he actually came with the house!
It wasn't til this spring that I decided he needed a little makeover!
Get a good look at him now.. Cause he's going away forever!!

Here he is now, all sanded, painted, and showing off!


I repainted this guy a green first... 
Cause that's the color I wanted my letters to be.

With the cricut machine, cut out your letters and place them where you would like them to be on your master piece..  After a million sticking, and resticking, I finally got them where I wanted them to appear!!

NOW, repaint this a color you'd like the background to be!

Now after you let dry for as long as needed.. and then peel off the letters!
Stand in awe as you gaze over your newly polished outside decoration!

Sanding is key to getting this looking awesome!
Sand all the edges of the letters to make it look worn and make it blend in with the rest of the color.

Sand the edges of the birdhouse/etc.. to give it a weathered look!!

Now put any kind of top coat on him!

I LOVE how this turned out!
I LOVE the oldness to it!
I LOVE how it looks as I pull in to the driveway!

What do you think?!
