Happy Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for my fiancé, family, friends, cute doggy, and the opportunity to create beautiful things! This is a HOME sign commissioned by one of my really good friends, one for her and one for her mom’s Christmas gift. While I still need to make the other holidays (Christmas gift deadline), I had to make sure that I finished the thanksgiving turkey in time for today! What are you thankful for today?

- ¼ inch birch plywood
- ¾ x 1 inch pine
- Nail gun
- Wood glue
- Scroll Saw
- Miscellaneous Paints
Begin by cutting the birch plywood into the sign (1 foot by 3 foot), and matching the pine piece to the sides. Cutting at 45 degree angles to make the frame.
Trace how you want your letters (H,M, and E) to look onto a piece of plywood and cut carefully using a scroll saw.
Paint the letters and frame black, and the base white. Let dry completely.
Glue the frame to the base board using the wood glue and secure with the nail gun.
Glue the letters to the base board, and weight them down while drying with books.
Using a mickey stencil, begin to create the different characters you want to make on the plywood, cut, and have fun painting!
Use the velcro to stick your finished interchangeable “O’s” to the base sign!
