What were some of the fun crafty gifts you gave/received this year?? I wanted to share a quick one with you because I just LOVE it – it was actually my sister-in-law that made these for her family – so cool! Her dad is a chemist and her brother-in-law a pharmacist, so both families are perfect for a Periodic Table of Elements gift. What’s more perfect than a Periodic Table Family Sign!
See, I told you – – so so fun!!
So the placement of numbers and letters mimics elements in the Periodic Table. And then they’re altered to make it a family sign.
–top left number is the year they were married
–main letter is the initial of their last name
–name under the letter is their last name
–the number under the name is the date they were married – so for example, the top one was April 28 (in 2006)
I helped out with the stencil – just cut it out of contact paper on my silhouette – so I had insider info on all the fonts if you want to make a sign for yourself.
–the numbers are all using Arial
–main letter is Times New Roman
–last name is Arabic Typesetting
I don’t have step-by-step instructions, but it’s the exact same as my “Let’s Stay Home” Sign, so you can head over to that tutorial for the step-by-step. Basically paint the main board, and trim boards, then paint on the stencil, then nail on the trim boards. Distress as desired.
That’s it! Enjoy your Periodic Table Family Sign in all it’s glory!
