Little Bit of Honey Sign

Little Bit of Honey Sign

At a recent farm market event, my daughter was tempted to buy a cute Honey 4 Sale sign she saw, but I talked her out of it by promising to make one for her. I started with a plain old wooden cutting board that I bought at Goodwill for one dollar.

I started by painting the cutting board a special mix of Paris Gray and Louis Blue chalk paint from Annie Sloan. A light white wash came next, and I rubbed about half of that off with a rag.
 
 
I found a bee’s nest along with some bee graphics at Graphics Fairy.
 
 
 
I printed text using the Brittanic Bold font in Word.
 
 
Using a Mod Podge transfer method, I applied the graphics to the piece of painted wood. Finally, I distressed it with sand paper and added a final coat of clear wax to protect it.
 
 
To hang the sign, I cut a strip from an old coffee bean sack to hang the sign.
Two holes were drilled at the top and I tied small bows after feeding it through.
 
 
Before giving it to my daughter, I took a picture of it hanging on my porch. 
 
I may have to make another one for myself!
