The wood I used were fence planks that I had cut to 24". I stained them brown and then painted a cream acrylic paint over top. Sand to bring out some of the brown. I then made up what I wanted my sign to look like in photoshop and divided it so that I could print it out in pieces. I traced this onto my wood using tracing paper and then painted in my letters with orange and brown acrylic paint. Super easy.
I am happy to share my print with you. You can download the pieces HERE
