Happy New Years Eve! Anyone throwing a party tonight?
I wanted to squeeze in one last project I thought you all might enjoy. This is a super easy last minute New Years sign that you can whip up really fast and will be a great addition to your New Years decor for that party tonight!
I made this sweet sign using a canvas I had laying around but you can just as easily use an old piece of wood, card stock, just anything you have on hand.
The first step was to create a stencil. I did this using my Silhouette Cameo. I cut my stencil out on vinyl which was a huge fail because it does not stick well to the canvas. In the future when using canvas I’ll just cut out some much less expensive construction paper as a stencil 🙂
Next, and I’m sorry I don’t have a photo of this one. I painted the canvas a metallic white color to give it a shimmery look.
After allowing the paint to dry, you’re ready to place your stencil.
You’ll want to be sure to place your stencil straight. I did this by drawing the faintest of lines with a pencil onto the canvas. Once you have your lettering placed, you can paint on a layer of mod podge. Since I had a hard time getting my vinyl to stay put on the canvas, the mod podge helped it to stay in place.
After that layer dried, I did another layer of mod podge then added on my blue glitter as I went along. I did a letter at a time because I didn’t want to the glue to dry before I got the glitter on there. I allowed it to dry for an hour before peeling off the vinyl.
I love the way it turned out. I added it to my New Years Vignette and it’s the perfection addition to my New Years decor!
