I ended up making 6 of these boards today. My original plan was to make 12 but I ran out of brown paint. Each board is 10 1/2" long. I borrowed the stencil from a friend who actually cuts her own stencils. I discovered once again that I'm not a great stenciler but they turned out ok. (I get impatient and use too much paint.) Instead of centering the words I decided to put them slightly to one side so I could add a raffia bow. I can't decide if I'm going to keep one for myself or give them all away. Several people have done really nice things for me recently so I'm going to give these to them as a thank you gift and a Thanksgiving decoration. Perfect!
