Hello Make It and Love It readers! I am so excited to be here today!

It’s Emma again from Crafting{E}. I have a super fun project for you guys today. It is a super easy painted “lucky” sign. It was so fun to make and I can’t wait to show you how to make it!

First of all, let me assure you, I am definitely NOT an artist.

I love graphic design (on the computer), but painting and drawing are not something I am good at. If you feel intimidated by the thought of painting something like this, don’t worry! It’s WAY easier than it looks.

I love the way the metallic gold/bronze paint contrasts the bright rainbow colors. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, am I right?! As you can see, the sign is definitely not perfect and I made several mistakes, but I feel like it adds a lot of fun character to the sign.

I hand-wrote the “lucky” part, but if you don’t want to do that, you can easily print the word out in a cute font and trace it.

The other thing about making this sign is that it is seriously so therapeutic.

I enjoyed spending several hours a couple weekends ago painting this sign and it was seriously relaxing!

MATERIALS:

  • Canvas or a piece of wood
  • Acrylic paint (I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and gold/bronze)
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Paint brush

DIRECTIONS:

  • First, lightly sketch out the design of your sign in pencil. You can also use a ruler for the lines in the back.

  • Then, paint the word “lucky” with your bronze or gold paint. You may need a couple coats. Allow the word to dry.

  • Next, paint the red lines.

  • Paint the orange lines.

  • Paint the yellow lines.

  • Paint the Green and blue lines. Don’t worry if you get some paint on the “lucky” part because you can touch it up after.

  • Let the lines dry and then touch up the “lucky” part with more bronze/gold paint.

And that’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial. Don’t forget to check out my website, Crafing{E} for more great projects. I hope you all have a great week!
