Get Cinco de Mayo Ready With Fiesta Sign
Because there is no time for sleeping at this party
Have I mentioned how much I love Pinterest for inspiration? I’ve been gathering so many ideas for Cinco de Mayo, from piñata’s (like everyones favorite treat holders I made here), to napkins, tissue paper flowers (my quick 5 minute project found here), and all the party signs you can imagine. While I don’t have a party planned this Friday, I still wanted to add some festive decorations to my collections for next year. By then, my little guy will hopefully enjoy (read: appreciate) all mommy’s craftiness.
I came across a similar sign on Pinterest that was totes adorable. Yes, I said totes. This sign had to be recreated somehow, but I sure as heck didn’t have a large A frame sign. I scoured my craft room and found the second chalkboard picture frame sitting on my shelf, not doing a darn thing but collecting dust. BINGO! If you recall, I turned it’s partner into a nautical themed art piece for my little guy’s nursery a few months back (remember this one). The frame was the perfect backdrop for this colorful, festive, Fiesta sign.
The Easy Steps I Took
I contemplated using vinyl, but ultimately decided to use card stock and glue the letters onto the background. I figured I would possibly be able to peel them off later if I wanted to reuse the frame. My machine didn’t cut some of the letters perfectly, but I kind of like the roughness of them. I then used a great design from the Silhouette Design Store (Design #60650 ) for the banner, strung it through some black and white Baker’s Twine, and voila! Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy! My frame also had a small, yet large enough to bother me, black scuff on the white matting, so I added one of the tissue paper flowers to the corner, because I can.
Paired with my piñata treat holders, this “No Time To Siesta, It’s Time To Fiesta” sign is mighty perfect for any Cinco de Mayo festivity you have planned. So, look around your craft room and find a frame, easel, sign, something, in order to recreate this piece as your own!
