I really got inspired when I received the most recent Pottery Barn Kids magazine. There are some things that I do end up buying from there (usually on sale), but I do like to create some of the adorable kids decorations or items that they have to offer. I made this mermaid sign for Wynn's room with a wooden plaque from Michaels, some white vinyl adhesive, turquoise paint from a previous project and my Silhoutte machine.
I painted over the plaque that was around $6 if I can remember correctly. I went through the images I had previously purchased through Silhouette and picked out an arrow and starfish for the sign. I typed up the wording and cut everything out on a pretty small piece of vinyl, and there was not a lot of waste. The plaque is approximately 12 inches by 6 inches.
Here is the piece from PBK that runs about $29 plus s/h. I like how their sign has individual boards glued together, but I was in a time crunch and I already had the wooden plaque in my basement. That way I did not have to purchase something new.
My version was around $8 dollars compared to the $29. I am hoping to put this is in Wynn's room as I change up the decor in there a little bit. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
