Today I’m going to show you how to make a simple BE GRATEFUL sign. These are great reminders and super inexpensive! In fact, these didn’t cost me anything. I made them out of leftovers from other projects. But even if you have to buy supplies you can make a LOT of signs for gifts and just spend a few dollars.

First, let’s do our 30 Days of Thanksgiving reading… then we’ll get to the project.
Scripture Reading – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
A Child’s Prayer
Thank you for the world so sweet
Thank you for the food we eat
Thank you for the birds that sing
Thank you, God, for everything.

DIY Be Grateful Sign
Here are the supplies I used:
- wood scraps – I found mine on the side of the road while I was out walking!
- Teresa Collins stencil, Dream
- spray adhesive
- DecoArt Chalky Finish paint, Carbon
- foam brush
This is my typical set up when I paint. If I’m painting alone I use the time to catch up on my YouTube channels! And I try to ALWAYS use a cup with a lid. I’ve stuck my paintbrush in my drink too many times!
First, I sprayed the back of the stencil and waited 5 minutes. That makes a temporary bond instead of permanent.
Then I just pounced a little of the black paint on and pulled off the stencil. Easy peasy!
