Ginger Snap Crafts: how to {wood artist sign}

how to {wood artist sign}

Did YOU know….


Hobby Lobby sells unfinished wood… cut,

trimmed, sanded & ready to paint!?!?

{What you already knew??!!  Why didn’t someone tell me sooner? ;)}

Last Friday I showed you my entry for Round 1 of OMTWI!  I needed a little photo prop for my new {outdoor} chalkboard, & the hubs was out of town {AKA…the guy that cuts my wood!}  So as I was making my weekly trip to Hobby Lobby & was browsing the aisles I came across the unfinished wood aisle! Oh my…already cut wood AND it’s routed AND it’s sanded AND so many sizes & shapes!  Wowzers!  You mean I really don’t have to wait on the hubs to cut my wood!  Wahoo!!  So I grabbed this little piece for $1.47 for my project! :)

I painted the wood a nice creamy white, then added my vinyl.  Drilled two holes in the top!  Found some cute ribbon {also from Hobby Lobby!}.  Threaded the ribbon through the holes, tied some knots.  There you go!  A cute little sign that was so easy! {AND I didn’t have to nag my hubby at all to get it done! Wahoo! :)}

FYI:  Hobby Lobby has no idea who I am.  I’m simply blogging about a place I LOVE to shop at! ;)


  1. Hobby Lobby needs to come here! Boo-hoo...

  2. LOVE the sign!! I LOVE Hobby Lobby!! I recently found, nothing major, but a pack of 25 little envelopes I will use for an Advent calendar. And with my 40% coupon they will be less than $3!!!

  3. I wish we had a Hobby Lobby :( Love the little sign though. It is so adorable!

  4. No Hobby Lobby here either... During my wedding planning I did order several totes that I made for my bridesmaids from them online. Still have a few left over that I might fancy up for some Christmas gifts.

  5. This is really gorgeous! I love the pretty saying! Great job & thanks for the tutorial!

  6. Hobby Lobby really is the greatest place on earth, isn't it? And I adore that quote! I may just have to make something similar to put in my son's room! Thanks for sharing :)
