Broom Parking Sign

The last time you were here, I shared how to make a witch broom.  Since the brooms were going to be parked on my front porch, I needed a sign:

In a few easy steps, you can make the same sign.  I must be honest, I thought this project would involve my new jigsaw, but we just happened to have a piece of wood that was the perfect size - stay tuned for a jigsaw project at another time.
Here's what I did:
Two holes were drilled and the board was given 2 coats of exterior house paint.  While that dried, I printed the words and
'colored' the back of the letters with a pencil:
I chose the placement of the words and taped them down with blue painters tape.  Using a stylus, I traced the letters onto the board.
The board looked like this:
Using a small paint brush and black craft paint, I painted the letters.
After distressing with sandpaper and spraying with a sealer, I added the wire for hanging.  
The sign is done!  
The next step is to decorate the front porch.  Be sure to stop back to see that final step.  I hope you'll  follow The Apple Street Cottage and never miss a post.
Have a wonderful week!
