The Signs Are Everywhere

As a way to fill every nook and cranny in my house with something that says, “hey you’re at my house, relax”, I decided to create a sign that states the obvious when people are in the kitchen.  I created a “Let’s Eat” sign.  Yeah I know that’s not very unique or special or whatever, but boy was it cheap!! The whole thing cost nothing to make since I had everything I needed already.  All I did was take a picture frame that was ready for the trash, spray paint the frame from brown to black, pop out the picture, and pop in my burlap creation. 

The sign itself is a piece of cardboard that I covered in burlap fabric and coated with Modge Podge.  Then I placed a stencil over the whole thing and colored in the lettering with fabric paint.  It took all of 5 minutes to make and hanging it over the entrance between my kitchen and dining room really adds a personal touch. 

See.  There was nothing to the little frame.

Grody cardboard that I covered in burlap.

Aww it's so cute!  I really like this FREE art.

Here's a closer look.  Another item saved from the landfill.
