Welcome Sign

welcome sign

I created a welcome sign for our house using a few different techniques. At a recent SNAP conference, I saw the Plaid Marbling Paint. In a recent goodie box, they sent me some to try as well as the wood plaque. I was excited to try this technique that I have seen all over YouTube. Once I was finished, I felt it still needed something. I then covered the edges with black Sharpie Marker. (black paint would have worked just as well) Once again, it still needed something. I added the Welcome by cutting some black vinyl I had from Tape Technologies using my Cricut Maker. So this post and project is a true melting pot of brands I work with. 


I want to personally thank Cricut, Tape Technologies, and Plaid for providing materials for this post.

These are the colors of Marbling Paint I used along with the plaque all from Plaid.

setting up the plaque
Plaque is in place in the disposable baking pan sitting on top of a plastic cup.

mixing the paint
Here is the paint in the disposable cup ready to pour - do not mix just add in paint randomly.

cup upside down
For this step you want to bring the cup and the plaque together, then place them like so on the cup.

moving the paint around
After you lift the cup and all the paint has transferred to the plaque, once again you pick up the plaque and move the paint around to cover the entire surface.

leave paint to dry
This is my results.

I didn't take a photo of the edge with the added Sharpie Marker but after the paint dries, this is when I added the edging.
