DIY Wine Sign

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.

Who loves wine? Cheers to you! You'll enjoy this sign!

You've all heard the Latin phrase "carpe diem"? Seize the day? So when I found a pic like this floating around Pinterest I knew I needed to recreate it.
Grab a spare board and transfer the saying onto the board.
I wanted my paint to be red wine color. I think I nailed it!
And paint in the letters.
And now it's ready to hang... and I'm a ready for glass.
Want your own sign? Check out my Etsy Shop!

  1. How did you transfer the letters onto the board? I love it by the way!!! Is 7:41 am too early for a small glass of wine??? Kidding, of course!!!

    1. Hey Suzie - there are a couple of ways to transfer the letters but the cheapest way is to design the letters (Word will work), print them out, using a pencil scribble on the back of your paper, then flip the paper over and place on top of your board. Trace along the letters and then lead from the back of your paper will transfer onto the board.

      Is it wine-o'clock? ;)

  2. Super sign, I love it. Thanks so much for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  3. Nice hand painting job Becca! Love the vino sign, perfect color for my favorite... Pinot Noir!
