Here is a piece of broken wood perfect for a sign.
(You will also need a cute little paw like the one in the bottom of this photo to help you.)
I printed out letters on my computer, taped them down & traced around them with a pencil.
I heard about this Sharpie paint markers & decided to give them a try.
The markers filled in nicely on the wood. I was surprised how well they covered. Of course I had to remove some of my hard work of coloring to make it look worn. So I lightly sanded & then added American Paint Company Clear wax to protect it. The broken corner looked too new so I added a little dark wax.
In less than an hour I have a super cute sign to take to the festival. (If I don't keep it for myself!)
