Family Initial Door Sign

I decorate my front door for the seasons and everyday, but I am not a big decorator for St. Patrick’s Day…so I needed something to hang on my door until I was ready to put up my Easter decor.

I love our Initial Impressions stencils and have so many ideas running through my head, that I decided to use the Sophisticated Alphabet Stencil (#71942) and create a family door sign with a large wooden tag that I have had sitting around for some time. Also, out FolkArt Family Words/Phrases Stencil is great for adding a comforting saying on it as well. I chose to add “There is no place like home.” that is featured on that stencil.

Using four colors of paint from the Americana Decor Chalky Paint line, I set to work. The inside of my house is filled with yellows, reds, and blues, but I am loving the lighter colors of the Chalky Paint, so I took a different route color wise than I normally would have. UsingĀ  Vintage (#15396), Yesteryear (#15406), Timeless (#15103), Relic (#15407), I turned that large wooden tag into a great door plaque for the “Miller” household. I finished my plaque with a coat of Soft Touch Varnish (#72008) and then added some ribbon that I had in my stash to brighten things up.
