Easy Kids Room Sign Project

This week I made a door sign to finish off Ally's room. It was really easy. The hardest part was figuring out what lettering to use and not messing it up with my shaky hands. Here's what you need to make this.

1. Unfinished wood plaque
2. Pink spray paint
3. Painted wood cutout - kitty or other critter
4. White paint marker
5. Adhesives - E6000 and strong double sided tape

I purchased the unfinished wood plaque, which I spray painted pink from Michael's Arts & Crafts. Here's a link to the plaque.

The kitty is also from Michael's and came already painted and ready to stick on with some strong adhesive. I used E6000. They have a lot of really cute, painted wood cutouts at the store. I couldn't find them online but they do have them for purchase online at Hobby Lobby. Most of them are around $0.50.

The white paint marker used is a DecoColor "broad line" paint marker in white, purchased at JoAnn (Michael's was sold out of white).
Looking at sample signs online can help you get an idea of the font you want to use. Before writing in paint, I wrote "Allison's Room" lightly with a white pencil.

Finally, the plaque is attached to the door with some Scotch Super Heavy Duty Indoor/Outdoor Double-Sided Mounting Tape. Whew! Say that ten times fast. This stuff is great to have around the house.

Here's another picture of the finished project. Thanks for looking!
