Fruit of the Spirit Wood Sign

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.

Free PDF printable 22x17* inch version of this sign available HERE (for personal use only).
*Available as four 8.5x11 sheets to be assembled

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 3: I design the words in Photoshop, Print and Assemble, trying to remember that I need to exercise the Fruits of the Spirit even while I'm pulling my hair out wondering why the edges of the words aren't matching up.

Step 4: Color The Back With Charcoal

Step 5: Trace Words Onto Sign
Step 6: Paint Words

I love how this sign turned out! So glad I finally got around to doing it!
