We recently had our electric meter replaced/moved and it left a gnarly hole in the siding. With old aluminum siding, I'm not sure we could find a patch that doesn't look like a complete eye sore, so I made a garden sign to hang over it in the mean time. For the lettering, I used this technique (http://www.craftionary.net/2012/05/hand-painted-kitchen-sign-board-tutorial-guest-post.html), but before I taped down the paper, I rubbed the back with graphite so I could skip the additional outlining step.  The wood had knotholes on the left-hand side so I placed the flower centers there. The flowers, vines and banners were drawn on freehand.
