Start by painting the arrow white with craft paint. I wanted a rustic look so I used a dry brush technique when painting. This left me with an imperfect surface where you can see the wood at times. Just right! After the arrow is dry, print out the fresh eggs printable onto regular paper. Cut away any excess with scissors and tape it onto your sign in location.
You can use then a few methods for transferring your words onto the sign.
- Use graphite paper laid under your paper and trace with a pencil. A dark line will be left on the white arrow.
- Turn over your “fresh eggs” paper and color the entire back with the side of a pencil lead. This will now act just like the graphite paper mentioned above.
- NEITHER! You can use a pen to go over the letters and press down hard. It will make a slight indention in the wood as shown below.
I obviously used the indention method but any of these three will work well. Then just fill in your letters with grey or black paint. Remember that this is farmhouse kitchen decor so it is meant to be a bit rustic. So don’t get too carried away with making it perfect!
I actually went over my letters a few times with the paint before they looked just the way I wanted them to. I then allowed everything to dry completely. You can also go over this with a clear spray sealer before displaying. This is important if it will be anywhere in your kitchen where it can get splattered with food, grease, or even water.
Then you can add this fun sign to your kitchen or anywhere in your home really. I snapped a few pictures in my foyer but this is actually in one of my glass front cabinets. I love the look of this farmhouse kitchen decor.
