“Where the Wild Things Are” Hand Painted Sign

wtwtasign

So I predict that this will be the first of many posts about baby P’s “Where the Wild Things Are” themed first birthday party. This particular project was part of the DIY “snowball effect” that resulted as my mind raced with DIY inspiration with each party decor addition, lol. While I was already spread way too thin trying to get everything done with for the party, I couldn’t resist adding one more little decor detail in the form of a cute little “we love you so” sign – especially because it cost me nothing but time to create! I used the same piece of wood (taken from my neighbor’s trash) that I used to create my DIY coat rack and my DIY Mason Jar Organizer and the same homemade chalk paint (made using “Stone Mason Grey” by Valspar) that I used when making my first DIY Hand Painted Sign for our laundry room/command center. Since I really liked the font I used for his invitation (called “Hello Goodbye” which I downloaded for free here from dafont.com) I used the same one for the sign and as for the silhouette of “Max” I found that here via Google images. For a full tutorial refer to my DIY Hand Painted Sign post for detailed step by step instructions to create your own sign!
