Another Rusty Shovel Garden Sign

I purchased this $3 rusty shovel at a garage sale this morning.  I'm going to make another rusty shovel garden sign.

Rusty Shovel #1:
I printed out the word "grow" on a sheet of paper in a fun font, traced the back of the word with chalk and then transferred it to the rusty shovel by tracing the front of  "grow" with a pencil.

Next I used my Rust-Oleum American Accents Satin Decorative Paint Pens in White  to retrace my temporary chalk letters.

All done!  I sanded the lettering with very fine sand paper just a little bit.  Then sprayed the lettering with Krylon Matte Finish Spray.

Now to transfer  the word "BLOOM" to another rusty shovel!
I used the Unkempt font on Picmonkey to print out my sign word.  On one word signs, I always use the chalk on the back of the paper and trace the letters in pencil method.  Easy!

Then I used an Rust-Oleum American Accents Satin Decorative Paint Pens in White to trace the chalk letters on the shovel.

 I sprayed a matte clear sealer from Krylon on the BLOOM part.
