6' foot 1x12 board
Silhouette or other paper cutter
Font you like
Dark Walnut Minwax
Step 1: I found the font that I wanted, the saying I wanted and cut it out using my Silhouette. The font is Biloxi Calligraphy. You can do this with any other cutter too. I started off with a font that was a little too big, it would have worked, but I didn't want to use my whole 8' board. I just wanted it to measure 6'. So, I had to adjust the font size to fit the 6'.
Step 2: I used painters tape to tape off the outside edge.
Once everything was all dried, I secured 2 d-rings onto the back to hang it up. I made sure to hang it up in the studs since I'm kind of paranoid of things falling on my head in the middle of night :) That's why I never have had anything above my bed until now. So far, so good! No night time scares!
To finish this look off, I just hung a dried boxwood wreath on top of it.
