She will move mountains

I found this adorable print of Pinterest and I just HAD to have one for Poppy's room.


But it was just a picture. . .
and sadly not a link to someone's etsy shop so I did what anyone would do.
I decided to make one myself!

First off, I contacted Holly from CARisma Vinyl and asked her to make me a decal.
She had it to me super quick and it was time to get down to biz-nass.

Materials needed:
A lightweight board for your base
Old dictionary or cute scrapbook paper. {You can even use old maps. Sweet right?}
Modge podge
Spray paint
Decal with desired quote
Sponge brush

Step 1: Gather materials
Step 2: Modge podge dictionary paper ALL over the board.
Tip--make sure you modge podge the actual board, THEN over the top of the paper so it will stick better.
I learned the hard way.
Step 3: After modge podge is dry- rub decal onto board
Step 4: Spray paint entire board-Apply has many coats as desired

Step 5: When paint is dry, remove decal letters.
Tip--if you modge podged it correctly, you wont need to do any touch ups.
I, however, didnt do it right at first, so i needed to tear small pieces of dictionary paper and
re-modge podge it in the spaces. I also touched up a bit of the paint.

When its all done. . .
Its gorgeous!
I mounted it behind some plexiglass to make it look more artsy.
I cant WAIT to put it up in her room!



Let me know if you have any questions!
