A Thanksgiving craft for the whole family

MOUNT HOREB (WKOW) — While many families will be making turkey, stuffing and pies this Thanksgiving, there’s something else you can add to the list. A Thanksgiving craft.

Lindsay Bauer, the owner of Board & Brush Creative Studio, stopped by the station to show our Wake Up Wisconsin team how to make a DIY wood sign with a Thanksgiving message.

Bauer says, for this project, you need a slab of wood, a stencil with a message you like, paint and brushes.

You’ll want to make sure the wood you’re using is sanded and smooth, then the paint can be applied. Set aside while it dries completely.

Next, place the stencil on the wood. Grab your brush and paint and get to work. An expert tip from Bauer, “don’t use too much paint.” She also recommends dabbing the brush onto the wood.

Once the project is dry, you can remove the stencil.

The wood sign is easy to do at home, but it can also be created at Bauer’s studio in Mount Horeb. If you want to learn more about the sessions offered at Board and Brush visit their website.
