Bike Sign

I am looking forward to sunny days and riding my little cruiser bike up our country road.

If you know and follow Donna at Funky Junk Interiors and Funky Junk Old Sign Stencils, you know that she loves her bike too. She loves it so much, it inspired her to create this fun, new bike stencil.

I couldn't wait to play with it. I decided I wanted to create something a little more modern looking so I decided to stencil the bike three times in a row, leaving the cute basket off.

I started with a piece of plywood I painted grey. I drew horizontal lines with chalk so that i could place the tires on the line for straight bikes.

The lines and stenciling spaces are small, so use a small detail paintbrush to paint the different colors. Let the paint dry before stenciling the next color.

I added a wood frame using my nail gun to attach it to the plywood. I sanded the sign a bit and then stained everything. Simple, clean, easy!
