On the fourth day of Christmas
Beyond The Picket Fence gave to me
A gift idea for the lover of coffee!
Today's idea is something that is easy and inexpensive for you to make for your favorite coffee lover. Yes, you can be your own favorite, I won't tell.
I am always looking for unique gift ideas that are easy to create and something that might appeal to lots of people. These fun coffee signs fit that criteria.
I started with some unfinished wood pieces. On these I free handed the writing, using chalk until I got the look and spacing I wanted. Remember, you can use stencils or my transfer method found HERE.
I then painted the lettering with craft acrylic paints and interior latex paint in a satin finish.
The mugs were also obviously hand drawn. Not perfect, just as I like it! I added the white in the cups after painting the whole thing and letting it dry. After the white was dry, I painted the coffee and steam.
Hooks added to the COFFEE sign are perfect for mugs or kitchen towels and aprons. Some D rings on the back of the cup hook sign and picture hanging wire assure that these will hng securely on the wall.
How fun would it be to give a hand painted sign, a big colorful mug, and a bag of your favorite coffee beans to someone this Christmas?!
