Vintage Style Baseball Themed Name Sign

Continuing with my theme of Upcycling this month I grabbed THIS old plaque
 and gave it a facelift to add to my boys' new BASEBALL themed bedroom!
Here is the finished Vintage Style Baseball Themed Name Sign!
Pin It
Want to make one.. here's how:
Ingredients
Sheperds Sign
Paint
Wood Letters
Mod Podge
Scrapbook Paper 
Craft Glue 
Sand Paper
I started with the old sign
 which I then painted blue.
Once the paint was dry I hit it with a little sand paper to give it that distressed look that I adore.
Then I grabbed my Wood letters and arranged them on the board and cut out my inspirational baseball words and ball player. 
Then I grabbed my Mod Podged and made 'em stick.
Next I painted my letters brown, 
then red and off white. 
Now we are die hard Yankees fans in this house so NO baseball sign would be complete without a little PIN striping and a little dirt!
Last I added some little touches to the name itself with a little help from Mod Podge,
and this sweet hand painted baseball. 
And D-O-N-E ... DONE! 
PLAY BALL! 
I am sharing with 
Serenity you Becoming Martha
Love,
Amie @ Pinkapotamus

  1. That is adorable! What little boy wouldn't love a baseball themed sign with his name on it! And even some big boys too!
