My friend Jordan will be a momma any day now. I wondered if I would end up delivering the little guy the day she came over to make this nursery wall art, but he is not here yet! Today I am sharing how we created this lovely Psalm 93:4 sign for next to nothing out of pallet wood. It is so perfect in her nautical themed nursery! Download the cut file below and follow the steps to make your very own!
Five pallet wood planks (Here is my video: How to Break Down Wood Pallets)
White chalky paint
Blue acrylic or chalky paint
Black vinyl for your die cut machine and transfer tape if you are die cutting the letters (if you don’t have a die cut machine, you could download the phrase below and transfer the letters to the sign to hand paint it like I showed you here: DIY Hand Painted Rustic Wood Signs)
Die Cut machine and software to trace jpg file provided below (this is not needed if you are hand-painting the sign as shown in the previous link)
Drill and 1/2 inch hole saw bit
1 1/4 inch Pocket Hole Screws
2 inch flat paint brush and round stencil brush
Cut your boards to about 45 inches wide and attach them with pocket holes, staggered as shown – (Here is How to Use a Kreg Jig).
Paint the sign white with chalky paint (we used Folk Art Home Decor Chalk).
Let that dry, then dry brush blue randomly as shown. We used a round stencil brush for this.
Let dry and cut or print and transfer text and anchor. We used a 12×24 inch mat and filled the entire area with the text. We sized the anchor to 5 inches and cut everything in black vinyl.
Center and adhere vinyl letters and anchor using transfer tape. Seal letters and sign with Mod Podge Matte or desired finish.
Mark desired placement of holes and drill with spade bit to fit diameter of rope you are using. (We have the letters covered in this image because the Mod Podge wasn’t dry and the saw dust would stick in it. Don’t judge, we were in a hurry)!
We LOVE it!! Jordan did a fantastic job with this nursery, and our sign tops it off perfectly.
We hope you are inspired to create your own!
