Three Dimensional "HOME" Signs with Thrift Shop Tart Pans

A 24" x 5 1/2" pine board and a thrift shop tart tin are transformed into a 3D farmhouse sign today on my blog.

 How I Did It:

1.  First I base coated my board with one coat of black latex paint.
2.  Then I painted on two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White".
3.  I used the H, M and E from a Decorcal 4" letter stencil packet.  I cut the inside part of the stencils out so there were not breaks in the letters.  (This worked okay for the H, M and E but other letters would not work out as well.)
4.  I taped my letter stencils on to the board vertically equidistant from each other with blue painter's tape.  I then stenciled on the letters with red Tomato Spice craft paint.
5.  I sanded the edges of my board with 100 grit sandpaper and the stenciling and inside of the board with 220 grit.
6.  I then waxed the sign with Decoart Creme Wax.  I like this wax even with ASCP, as it is much easier to work with.  It's like applying paint more than a wax.

7.  I attached the tart pans with screws.

8. I added a sawtooth type hanger to the back for hanging.

I made one with red lettering,

And one with black.  I'm not sure which one I'm KEEPING!
