Oh how I do love scrap wood.
I painted it tacky pink. Found an image I liked. With a fork I pressed down hard and traced the image onto the painted wood.


I then used my dremel with the small round tip and went over all the pressed lines...


and that is how this princess board was born. I did something similar with a long piece of scrap wood. I printed out my words off the computer and traced them with the sharp end of a spoon. After I chiseled the words I stained the whole thing. The sign is above pictures of my kids.

I have a dremel, but I have always used it for home repairs (except for the time I tried to use it to carve a pumpkin and made a mess). I love the sign! I am going to have to start looking at my dremel a little differently now.
