& to all a good night
My new sign this year.
It begins, as all my sign projects do, with
a trip into the garage for a piece of scrap
wood. We cut off the uneven pieces a bit
but didn't straighten it out any more
than that. It still has a rustic edge.
Painted it white.
Sanded the edges.
I found a font I liked and just kept enlarging
a photo of it until I had it large enough for
my board. Later I did find the font's name.
It's Boho Script. Note: I always space my
saying on the board without having to worry
about the length. I just cut the board when
I'm done to the proper length.
I lay the 3 pieces of copies on the board.
Then I used carbon paper between the
paper and board to outline the words.
That's the easiest way to transfer any
lettering. It's the method I use
on all my signs.
I lift the paper and carbon a few times
to make sure I got all the lines. Note the
"g" loop is not complete. Easy fix..
Then I use a Sharpie to paint in the letters.
I will hang this over the bed or give
it as a gift and make another one.
All finished and on my Christmas bed.
Attach hangers to back for hanging as i
did in this post HERE.
I think this is such a fun scripty font.
If you can't find it you could enlarge the pic
above and use that .
I really get lost in font land...so many
I've already downloaded for free.
Let me know if you've made a new sign
for this Christmas. It's addicting,
especially when they are so easy and
free to make.
