Friends, I am always one to keep it real. Typically, when I post a DIY, it’s because I was able to get in, get it accomplished, and move on with my life. These are the types of projects I live for…and this project is NOT one of those!
If you are looking for a QUICK go of things, just tell me how adorable this project is and move on. I spent three quarters of a day and created a lot of mess with this cutie! However, if you are looking for an EASY go of things, I would say that this sweet little sign is rather simple, as long as you have some patience and are willing to relive your paper mâché days from elementary school.
My Sign of Hope project can also be used to create other words or initials to hang in a nursery or family den. (There are pictures of both ideas a little later in this post.) If you decide to give this one a try, I suggest you find a friend to share your craft time with and use the following process:
