12x12 slat board unfinished sign
Acrylic paint - choose at least 3 colors that can blend together like the yellow, orange, and red shades
Vinyl of your choice
- Apply 1st color of paint to top of wood slat board - about the top 1/3 then, while 1st paint is still wet apply orange paint to the middle 1/3- blend the the space where the first and second colors meet to create a nice fade from one color to the next. then, while paint is still wet, apply the red paint to the bottom 1/3. Start at the very bottom and work your way up blending into the middle color. Blending the red and orange colors where they meet to create a fade from one color to the next.
- Let dry.
- Wrap jute cording around the metal wire hanger.
- Apply the vinyl of your choice to slat board. If your vinyl design is larger then 1 of the slats, you can cut your vinyl into segments the same width as each slat so that you can apply the vinyl to more then one slat- as was done with the white dandelion vinyl pictured above.
- Tip- if desired you can distress the painted slat board a little before adding vinyl by sanding away some of the color.
