Beach Sign

Ready for Summer?

 Here's a easy project to get you in the mood for a day at the beach! 

You will need:

  • Joy® Iron-on embroidered white, dyeable letters
  • A wooden sign
  • Rope
  • A large starfish
  • Acrylic pain in white, brown, blues and blue-greens.
  • Assorted dry brushes
  • Hot glue gun
  • Instructions:

    • Prop your sign up on something to make for easier painting.
    • Brush each color of paint across the sign, slightly overlapping into the next colors space.
    • Use a photo of the beach/ocean for reference.
    • Brush the paint side to side. Its OK to leave some wood exposed.  

    • Keep painting until you reach the sand, (brown paint), then switch to a new 'dry' brush. 
    • Allow some of the 'wood' to show through when you are painting the sand.
    • Touch up the horizon with some dark blue paint.
    • Add some vague clouds if desired.

    • With a smaller dry brush, add a little bit of white paint to mimic some distant waves. 

    • When the paint is dry to touch, hot glue the rope around the sides and attach some at the back for hanging.
    • Use a quick drying adhesive to adhere the letters in place, pressing down for a few seconds per letter. 
    • Finish your beach sign by hot gluing the star fish in place.

    You can find Joy® embroidered, iron-on letters, letter sheets and appliqués at your local craft stores.
