I want to enjoy every last minute of summer, but knowing that autumn is just around the corner, I decided to work on a sign with a “give thanks” theme.
I designed a new stencil, based on the Bible verse from 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks.”
The sign is very easy and inexpensive to make.
I bought a pine board and cut it about 20″ in length, then painted it white.
Normally I would use black paint for the lettering, but I used gray for this one.
I made the frame out of lath strips cut to size and stained.
To attach them to the board, I used a Power Shot staple gun (affiliate link) that I just bought.
It can attach either staples and small brads, so it’s perfect for projects like this.
I attached a wire hanger on the back to hang it.
All of my kids will be home for Thanksgiving, and we may have a few extra guests as well, so I plan to stencil the design on a table runner as well – probably a burlap one.
The design area of the stencil is about 16″ x 4-1/2″.
It’s been a long time since I made any book page canvas signs, so I’m working on a few of those too.
They aren’t ready yet, but I’ll share them when I’ve got them finished.
Vaya con Dios,
