I thought about calling this, “Oops, I did it again,” because–seriously–I might just have a problem with tweaking. But yesterday’s chevron “C” got more of a toss than a tweak in favor of something a smidge more refined.
So, I grabbed a piece of foam core from Michael’s (on sale right now for ~$1.50) and cut it down to about 16″ x 20″ with my rotary cutter and mat. Then, using my quilting ruler, I added a grid of 4″ wide and 3″ high sections.
With a cheap foam brush, it is super easy to fill in the lines.
Then I did a google search for “monogram C fonts” and found this little pretty.
I used that as a guide to sketch a “C” onto my freshly chevron-striped foam core. [Of course, you could print it out big and trace it if that is easier.]
Then use a sharpie to trace the initial and a foam brush to fill it in.
Tweak with a fine paintbrush or sharpie as needed, and voila!
So yesterday’s little “C”…
…got a big upgrade! Wheeeee!
Thanks to a little ribbon hanger duct-taped to the back and a command strip to secure, up it went on the front door. I’m still waiting on the planters to be filled, but don’t you love those yellow wellies? I think they are the perfect spring-beckoning touch to the almost-finished porch.
Now bring on spring!
So, anyone else have your spring porch done? Do tell!
More chevron? Yes please!
