My healthy and beautiful twins granddaughters were born on Friday, August 20, 2010.
They are gorgeous! (Sorry, grandma is totally in love)
I made this Lawn Sign to welcome them home.




I used a Foam Poster Board from the $1 Store.


My painting and drawing abilities are terrible, but with the help of a Tracer Projector and a lot of love, the painting came out pretty good.

I decided on a temporary sign instead of a more permanent wood sign; because it was a surprise welcome home sign for my daughter and son in law to find in front of their house. Being a surprise, I did not ask them if it would be ok to write the girls name on a public sign, so a Foam Poster Board was perfect for a temporary sign.

This is how is done:
Find the image desire.
Print the image.
Blow it up on the poster using a Tracer Projector.
Trace the image on the poster.
Painted.
Cut it.
Glue or screw the stakes.
tada!
We have a Baby Lawn Sign
