Who’s excited for Hunger Games to come out this weekend?? Kelli and Kristyn have already set up a double date [hubbies included this time 😉 Boo to Kristi living in Yuma!] to see it this weekend. In honor of the fun movie, our buddy Rae Gun hosted fun HG related tutorials. This rustic ombre Hunger Games sign (from our favorite line in the books) was our contribution to her series:
Do you recognize this quote? It’s from Peeta…so cute.
“I just want to spend every possible minute of the rest of my life with you.“
We cut our own wood to 16″L x 10″W. We created the lettering in our vinyl program and cut it out, but we backward weeded it so it became a stencil. Then we painted the letters 4 different colors, creating a unique ombre look. Don’t forget the core of this sign….the little mockingjay symbol in a light gray hiding in the corner. After it was dry, we distressed it with sandpaper, poly’d it for protection and you’re done:
We actually gave this cute sign away (congrats #43, Sims Family!) as we were caught up in the excitement of the whole series but as you can see, it was simple to make.
Are YOU into Hunger Games too? Anyone out there braving the movie theater crowds to see the mighty Katniss fight for her life??
