I’ve known for a while that this is the phrase I wanted to use for Grandparents Day. You know that kids are usually allowed to get away with more and eat extra junk food at their grandparents’ house. :-)
Want to make one of your own? Or something similar? Here’s what I did. Grab a piece of wood. My husband nor I are handy with the saw so I bought mine from a craft store and used a coupon. I wanted my letters to be white so I spray painted the wood piece white. You can use any color you like though.
Instead of using up my vinyl, I just grabbed some random contact paper I bought years ago from Wal-Mart. I slipped it into my Cameo and cut it out. Then I pealed away the “extra” vinyl. Right before I attached the letters to the piece of wood, I sprayed the wood with some spray adhesive. I’ve had problems in the past getting vinyl to stick to the wood and someone suggested some adhesive. I did that and it worked great!
I tried my best to line everything up using a ruler and taping as I went. But try as hard as I did, I still messed up a bit. You can see that “stays at” isn’t lined up with everything else. After the letters were in place, I spray painted it. I let it dry just a bit, maybe an hour or so, before removing the letters. I didn’t want them to get stuck there!
When it was completely dry, I measured and put a sawtooth hanger in place so that it can be hung easily.
And here’s the one I made for Nana & Papa.
I love how they turned out. And this was such an easy project that can be done for anything or any holiday! Your imagination is the limit!
