I picked up this little metal sign at Dollar Tree and since both sides look the same I thought it would be perfect for a transitional piece!! I’m doing a couple of things to prep this piece, the first being to remove the “Family” word which turned out to be cardboard. It was attached with glue so I used my heat gun to warm up the glue and pull it off.

I’ll use a tool to scrape off the excess glue (this is what I use.) and then attach some neutral scrapbook paper with glue. I want to darken the frame color just a bit, so I’ll wipe on some Espresso stain. If you like the color you can definitely skip this step.

I’ll be covering both sides to make this sign reversible, adding a gray paper to one side, and white farmhouse style to the other. Once I have the paper on the base is ready!! How EASY was that??

Creating the attachments…

Now remember, the base is metal so I’m going to use magnets to attach different shapes to the face of the sign. This will make it SO EASY to change shapes out for the holidays. I picked up some different shapes at Dollar Tree and they are going to be so cute when covered with my favorite scrapbook papers.

I have three shapes from Dollar Tree to use, a heart, carrot, and shamrock. These can be painted but I’m going to cover each with Mod Podge and then scrapbook paper.

Lastly, I’ll attach a magnet strip to the back of each shape in order to attach to the sign face.
