Ice Cream Sign
Every season I decorate my coffee bar in a theme that is fitting to the time of year. I have mentioned this before, but it is worth mentioning again that the coffee bar is where I start my day.
So naturally, I want it to be fun, inviting and fully inspiring to the season we are currently living in because I am a creative whose day is all about creating and sharing home decor and DIY craft projects.
Being in the Summer season, I wanted to go with an Ice Cream theme for my coffee bar, and decide it would be fun to create a header ice cream sign for the top shelf of my coffee bar.
I created my coffee bar area awhile ago and with each season the table and shelves get restyled and improved with home decor I have either bought or DIY-ed.
You can check out my post on How to Create A Coffee Bar You Love right here. It is kind of the beginning of how the whole seasonally living thing came to be about.
How To Create an Ice Cream Sign
I created a video showing my entire process start to finish so that you can view how quick and easy this project is to make.
I absolutely love the way this turned out, especially with the different colors.
Once you have all the materials you will need to set up an area to create. The dining room table or your craft table is a great place. I made this in front of my Dreambox cabinet as it has all my supplies within the craft storage cabinet at an arms reach.
You can also check out my Dreambox Setup in this video to see how I have it set up! I absolutely love the Dreambox setup. It really makes crafting so much more fun!
- Letters in the word “ICE CREAM” or a word of your choice. You can get these from Hobby Lobby or Michaels.
- Craft Paints in colors of your choice.
- Wood background or frame to place letters on.
- Hot Glue and Glue gun
Begin by preparing your space to not allow any paint to mess up or get on any surfaces. Then begin painting your letters.
Once dry you will simply want to glue them on the backing or frame where you choose to display the letters.
I purchased my letters from Hobby Lobby and got the paper-mache letter. However, you can get wood letters from just about anywhere.
Even Amazon sells wood lettering for craft projects.
Once you have finished your sign display it on your coffee bar like I did or where ever you choose to put the sign. I created an entire Ice Cream theme on my coffee bar and just love how it turned out.
