Signs, Signs, Every Where's a Sign ...

Recently, in accessorizing our home, I jumped on the crazy pallet wood band wagon. 

  Ken even joined in and brought home pallet wood to tear apart. I finally got around to making a few signs out of them. I did them two ways.

First way:
I made a stencil from vinyl on my Circut, laid it on the board, and then proceeded to paint over it.

Clearly had to go back and re-cut that "W"

Second way:
                I made a stencil from freezer paper on my Circuit, ironed it on the wood, and proceeded to paint over it.


                First verses second:
                Truly, I liked the freezer paper as far as easy and quick was concerned. It ironed great on the wood, however, the paint bled through in some areas that I did not iron down as well. The vinyl took time to lay over the wood, but it stuck better. The paint did not bled through like the freezer paper. Next time, I think I will just use freezer paper and iron it on better. 

I also used freezer paper on this burlap:
