Can you believe I finished an actual craft. For myself. :)
It seems like it's been forever since I've done a craft just for the fun of crafting.
Not for a craft fair. Not for a custom order. Not for a gift. Just for me because I wanted to.
It was nice! :)
I remember seeing a gorgeous "No Soliciting" sign awhile back (I have no idea where I saw it or who to give credit to...I'm sorry!). I just remember REALLY wanting my own sign!
We have LOTS of solicitors come through my neighborhood. I know they are just trying to do a job. But, it makes my dog go crazy. Usually Bubby (one of my cats) shoots out the door. I'm usually in my PJs, hiding behind the door trying to talk to the person about something I'm not even interested in.
I hate it!
So, now they will be greeted with this:
It's just a cheapy plaque from either Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Who knows...it was in my stash. :)
The background is a piece of scrapbook paper, with the pennant already on the paper. Super easy!
(Let's pretend my trim was painted last year
when I had the new door put in.)
And I cut the letters out with my Cricut onto black scrapbook paper. I downloaded an Old Newspaper type font from dafont and used my Sure Cuts Alot 2 software.
I Modge Podged the letters on. But I also sprayed on several coats of Poly since it will be outside (although under a covered porch, so exposure to the elements is limited).
The ribbon came off of my perfume box. Bow already tied and all. :)
Sometimes I feel like such a packrat, but then when I put something together like this with a bunch of stuff I have laying around and then for a minute it seems worth it. :)
I'm totally loving my new "No Soliciting" sign!! :)
