little kohen is going to be turning 2 soon.
if you know me, you know that i like to do things on the cheap.
even with parties, i love for things to be beautiful and thought out, but i hate spending money.
i utilized many things that i already owned and ended up spending about $30 on the party (not including food which was pizza). and it turned out so cute and fun!
this year, i wanted to have another sweet and simple little party for his birthday---so i decided on a "you are my sunshine" theme.
i love yellow...it's so bright and fun.
and let's face it---i'm not going to be able to pick the themes of my kids bday parties for much longer.
maybe i can get away with one more year with kohen--and of course, this new baby.
but that's it.
i liked them, but none of them were exactly what i was hoping for.
so, i used them more as inspiration, and decided to paint my own.
i took pictures of the process, so you could have a somewhat tutorial, but let's face it---it's pretty easy.
get a board, paint it, voila.
but first, you definitely need a helper if ones available:
i found my board sitting in my garage--it had lots of texture on it, which was what i wanted.
after you paint the board white, let it dry.
while drying, take a lunch break.
painting is hard work.
i free handed the letters, but you could stamp, or trace.
and then you're done.
and you have a lovely sign. (mine is about 2feet x 2feet)
after we use this at the birthday party, i plan on hanging it in mr. anderson and i's room.
this took me about 45 minutes to do (not including our lunch break).
and i had all supplies on hand, so it cost me nothing.
that's a win.
happy sign making :)
