Easy to Make Sign

Easy Bedroom Sign

Here, my friends, is my version of an easy to make sign. I made it especially to hang over our bed. It reminds me of a favourite old Randy Travis song, “Forever and Ever, Amen.” here.

Here is how to created this easy to make sign: Begin by removing the glass in an old picture frame. Mine was free!  Next cover the picture with a piece of leftover painter’s cloth or burlap if you like. You don’t need to glue this if you allow a half of an inch extra on all sides. It will lay nicely inside the frame without the use of glue.  I copied my letters from picmonkey right off of my laptop screen. You can print them on paper if you don’t mind using the ink required for this. I find it unnecessary unless it is something I am going to make more than one copy of. Now trace your lettering to the cloth with a heat removable marking pen. The ink will disappear from heat of your iron.

This is an easy to make sign because it doesn’t even require paint.

I used chalk! So easy and simple.

For my easy to make sign I added a tarnished brass #4 and two wooden birds recycled from another old sign I was no longer using. Be creative here and make it your own. I had considered a small vase to hold flowers in the center as a possibility.

Here is how my sign looks hanging over my bed. And it only took a few hours to make.

    1. I loved this song. I would play it on the juke box in a little restaurant where Tim and I would visit while vacationing in Ludington Michigan!
