I Can Do All Things

I was inspired by Love of Family and Home to make this cute sign for my home.
It is a very simple project and takes a short amount of time.
I didn't want to spend any money so this project was perfect for a lazy Saturday afternoon at home.

I found this piece of wood left over in the garage from the child's armoire chalkboard I finished. If you didn't see the before and after go check it out.

Anywho...I started by cutting out my verse using my handy Cricut Machine and laying out the letters to make sure it was going to fit on my board

Next I painted the board with two coats of black Satin paint and let completely dry

Then it was time to add the verse
I layed out the letters again to make sure I had the spacing right and glued each one using a small paint brush and Elmers glue

I used some sand paper to lightly distress the edges and gave it a coat of Mod Podge and let it dry

Here she is perched on the shelf in my living room

I love this verse and need to be reminded of this daily!
Thank you to Tonja over at Love of Family and Home for inspiring me to make this darling sign. If you haven't checked out her blog please go by and say hello!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I really, really needed to see this today. I mean, how many times have I seen this verse? A zillion! But today I am tired. Mentally tired! And when I saw your little thumb nail verse I realized I have no reason to be tired! I can tap into the ultimate power source! I can do ALL THINGS through JESUS~!
