DIY Insprational signs

If you are the type of person who likes decorating their house with things you made yourself. If you think DIYs are relaxing AND useful, read on.

I really love collecting inspiring quotes, and I have several notebooks filled with quotes from movies I have seen and books I have read through the years. With time I have realized that having “inspiring” quotes to read around could be really helpful, especially if you are having a hard time at work or at home, or with anything else.

For a really long time I had post-it notes all around me saying: “This too shall pass”, and to be honest I would find a great dose of relieve when things looked bad for me.

Today’s DIY is inspired by the fight we put up every day. The fight to stay positive and the need of motivation in our environment.

Since I was in more romantic mood, than any other, I decided to use a quote by Earnest Hemingway that brings warmth to my heart every time I read it, and it is, of course a part of my notebook of quotes!

The things you will need for this project are:

  • Alphabet stamps (that you can get from any craft store, I went to the one that was nearest to me – Slanchogled)
  • Heart shaped stamps (this step is optional, of course)
  • Ink pad (any color you might like,  I used purple)
  • Wooden board (you can also use paper, cardboard, plastic or you can stamp things straight on your wall, door or wherever you want your quote to be)

All you need to do is pick a quote, that you find inspiring, or motivational and start stamping those letters on your board.

The only tricky part is to align the letters so your sentences go in straight lines. For that I used a book, but you can so it with a ruler too or a piece of paper you don’t need. The freedom is the best part of the creating process.
