As I was working on tracing, and cutting, Stud went out to the garage and grabbed a strip of wood and cut a frame for me. He used a simple 45 degree cut on the miter saw and some scrap wood became a nice basic frame.
I looked at my example and used a pencil followed by a marker to write the word ‘Sweet’ real cute. This was the trickiest part because pencil on maps does not show up very well. No worries though, I was able to erase and work on it until I got it just as I wanted. I place some blue stationary paper under each of the cut out HOMEs. We glued the map to a thin board and then sandwiched the frame on top with a staple gun. For a final touch, I drew a heart over our house address. I didn’t think showing my heart placement on the web would be too brilliant.
And there it is…as you walk in the front door into the entry and then into the family room…just a few steps in is my fun sign. Lots of smiles from this mommy!
