Let's Give Thanks Sign and Free Printable

canvas painted with black Sharpie for Thanksgiving


Last week while working in the garage I noticed some canvases that had been in there for almost a year. 

My daughter brought them home after saving them from the landfill when someone at school was getting rid of them.
She's learned a lesson or two. ;) 

They weren't pretty, but
nothing a few coats of white paint couldn't take care of. They were painted and they sat there, waiting for inspiration to strike.

Well, after a year, I finally came up with something, a Let's Give Thanks sign.

These are the materials you'll need to create it:

Optional:
6' Wood molding to frame it - ¾" square
Nailer or even Liquid Nails can hold the frame.

I still don't have a cutting machine to make this kind of signs, so I have go the old way...

Printing the image and carbon copying it onto the canvas.

Tracing letters with a black Sharpie

Then, using the black Sharpie, it got filled in. EASY, right!


Well, I didn't like the staples showing on the sides. That's why I went ahead and framed it with spare pieces of wood from other projects.

Nothing fancy. Straight cuts, very rustic. ;)

And, one of my favorite tools, my Ryobi AirStrike Nailer, did the rest!

I created a little Fall vignette where this sign fitted right in!
