Floral and gold quote sign materials

Here’s what you’ll need for your quote sign:

  • Piece of scrap wood (mine was 12×8 inches)
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Foam brush
  • Gold spray paint
  • Floral tissue paper
  • Adhesive letters

Begin by mixing about a tablespoon of glue with a tablespoon of water. This will thin it out, making it easier to spread on the wood.

First, cut a piece of tissue that is the same size as the wood. Then paint the glue mixture across the wood, covering the entire surface. Work quickly so it doesn’t dry as you’re going.

Lay the tissue down on top of the glued surface. Smooth it out with your hands so it lays nice and flat, and smooth out any air bubbles.
