Bloom Where You Are Planted Sign

Hey Everyone! This is Summer from Summer Scraps and I am so excited to be here today! Over on my blog you can find all kinds of crafts and recipe ideas. Today I am get to share a Spring idea with you. Spring is here and one of my favorite things about Spring time is the flowers! I love the phrase "Bloom where you are planted". So I thought this would be the perfect time of year to create a sign using this phrase.

Bloom where you are planted

Supplies Needed:

  • Scrap Wood – I used 2×2 wood scraps (7 boards are 15″ and 2 boards are 10″).
  • 14 – 1 1/4″ screws – I predrilled the holes and then put the screws in to make sure the wood did not crack.
  • White paint
  • Flower Stencil - you can buy one or make one
  • Red and orange spray paint
  • Vinyl that says “Bloom where you are planted”
  • Tape
  • Scrap paper
Okay let’s get started! First Cut/sand your wood. Line up the 15-inch wood pieces as shown in the picture below. Screw in the two shorter pieces to add stability.

Flip your sign over and paint it white, let dry.
Once dry, tape down your flower stencil on the wood. I placed paper around the edges to make sure excess spray paint didn’t get anywhere else on the wood.
So I wanted my flower to be red with a pop of orange in the middle. So first I used the orange spray paint and I lightly sprayed around the middle section.
Next I used the red spray paint and lightly sprayed over the rest of the stencil. I lost a bit of the orange so I gave the middle a quick spray of orange in the center again.
Then I carefully removed the stencil and let it dry.
I did the words in black vinyl. I used the Brush Script font (in case you are wondering). Add your vinyl words and you’re done!
Perfect for a nice spring day, right? If you like this idea you will probably want to see how I made these cute Bunny Cupcake Toppers Bunny-cupcake-toppers
