Fruit of the Spirit Wood Sign
I've been waiting to make this sign for a LONG time. I've always struggled with the Fruit of the Spirit as described in Galatians: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-Control. I thought having a BIG, pretty reminder on my wall might help me when I'm feeling especially impatient or jerk-ish or cranky.
Originally, I wanted to paint these on my dining table. But since it is often covered in art projects, I don't know if I'd really ever see these guys, and I wanted them VISIBLE.
Here's a quick rundown of how I did it:
Step 1: Hubby Cuts Vintage Pallet Wood For Me And Assembles It
Step 2: I Paint It White (using a satin interior flat paint in a creamy off-white)
Step 4: Color The Back With Charcoal
Step 5: Trace Words Onto Sign
Step 6: Paint Words
