Question- on the one sign that you used vinyl, you said you used modge podge…. Why did you use that? Does it help keep the paint from going under the vinyl??

Hey Wendy,

This is House of Hepworth’s design, yes that is what she used it for so that the paint wouldn’t seep under the vinyl.

Stacy,

Your best option is using firring strips on the back, one on each side and one in the middle. Attach them using either nails or a brad nailer if you have one.

Thanks,
Melissa

We stapled strong woven ribbons to the back of the pallet wood, then hung a zigzag hanger on the top board.
