What did you use to change the color of the pallets before putting the lettering on? I noticed its much lighter, almost white.

Where do you find Cece Caldwell aging cream and wax? Home improvement store like lowes or Home Depot? Or a craft store like hobby lobby or Joann’s?

Now that my sign is finished…. how on earth do I hang it up on the wall?

Great question, Rachel! I wrapped craft wire around the vertical boards on the back and hung it on a screw mounted in a stud.

Exactly how did you make your stencil!!!

Hi Mallorie. I cut it using my Cricut machine.

How did you fill the letters in? Like the G.

Hi there, I had a question about the letters as well… how did do the letters like B or D where there are parts of the letter not visible on the stencil, just the outlines of the letters would be. Thanks for any help you can give, I have been wanting to make one of these for so long. Also, how big did you cut your letters with the Cricut.

hi there… can you tell me a little more about how you did the letters. I’ve been dying to make something like this and every time I cut a stencil or template out with my Cricut I can’t figure out how to get the letters like B or D to look right since the stencil just has the outline of the whole shape. Also, what size did you cut your letters.
Thank you, it looks amazing!

What font is your stencil? I can’t find a font like it anywhere.

Gill Sans!

How do you keep the centers of the letters in place? ex. A’s and O’s. I can’t make those letters perfect. Thanks!

Contact paper duh! Lol I used my cricut and made stencils with card stock. Off to the store to get some!
