Under My Umbrella Inspired Signs

The inspiration for this sign came from Melinda over at Under My Umbrella.

These signs are great for birthday gifts. I used the "You make my cookie crumble sign," because I am also giving the girls come of my soft, chewy COOKIES.

I was able to find all of the wood for this project at Lowes and Hobby Lobby.
My husband spray painted the first coat for me so that I wouldn't have to use a dozen coats of White Acrylic paint to cover the wood. ((LOVE HIM <3))
After the paint dried I used 'Distress Ink, Walnut Stain,' and gave the wood a distressed look.

I of course I had to make one for myself too :). My husband was pretty happy about it because I told him I could use it for every holiday; which means less crafts to store and bring out every holiday.

I used velcro circles and hot glued them to the wood. I also hot glued the corresponding velcro circles onto the fabric flowers. That way I can change them out to match whatever holiday it is. I didn't do the same thing on the cookie plaques unfortunately because it was an afterthought.

I found a tutorial on how to make a Ruched Flower over at Originate and Renovate.
It's funny I told myself I wasn't going to make any St. Patty's Day decorations, to try to contain my holiday craft obsession. Whoops. :)
