BELIEVE

Ted Lasso's Believe sig has become such a positive icon for encouragement and faith. Sometimes there are no other words that fit as well as this one. Believe in yourself, in the good in the world, in a future in the support of friends... that tough times will pass and better ones are on the horizon. Believe... what does it mean to you?



Make this eye-catching sign for yourself or others with a DIY Art Kit from Three & Me here or source your own supplies and follow along.




The DIY Art Kit comes with:

  • 1 base sign, with engraved letter outlines (various sizes available)

  • Believe letters cut out

  • paint in yellow, blue and white

  • 1 re-usable paint brush

  • 1 wedge

From home you'll need:

  • paper plate

  • paper towels

  • masking tape (optional)

  • glue, if your pieces are not self-adhesive- I recommend Aleene's Turbo Tacky glue


Let's do it....



Separate out the letters from the base.




Blend together some white and yellow paint to create a better base layer.

The yellow acrylic paint tends to be a little translucent, so by adding a bit of white paint to it, you'll get better coverage.



Apply the paint in long even strokes with the broad side of your sponge brush.

Allow the base coat to dry fully.



Apply additional coats of paint, adding more and more yellow to, until you get to the level of brightness you like.



After 3 coats, the scored lettering is still visible, for easy letter placement.

Allow the base to dry fully.



While the base dries line up your BELIEVE letters. If you don't want paint all over your fingers, place them on a strip of up-turned masking tape.



Using the sponge wedge, dab a small amount of blue paint onto the letters.

For the base layer, you can blend some white paint into the blue. But be careful, to not overload your sponger, or paint will drip down the edges and look messy.

.

After about 3 coats, the letters look solidly painted.

If you did get paint dripping down the sides, use a black sharpie to color the edges.



Check if your letters are self-adhesive. If your set has a removable film on the back of the letters, you will have self-adhesive pieces, and you won't need glue. Just peel away the backing and stick your letters straight into their places.

If not, use Aleene's Turbo Tacky glue, wood glue or superglue to stick your letters onto the sign.

Do not use too much glue.



And glued.

Give it a few moments to settle.

Apply command strips or lean your sign on a shelf.


What a fabulous eye-catching piece of inspiration for any room and reason. Pairs well with English shortbread biscuits and tea. ;)


I like to add messages on the back and use it as a forever card to uplift someone going through a tough time. How will you use your sign?


I'd love to see photos of your creations! Please send me an email or tag it with @threeand.me or #threeandme on social media.


Thank you for joining this Three & Me art experience. I hope you had so much fun creating this sign. If you have questions, suggestions or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly here.


Warmly,


Claire Houlding

Had the most fun tonight with an amazing instructor and many wonderful friends! Three & Me out did themselves with beautiful presentation and amazing craft that I am excited to display in my home! I look forward to another opportunity to craft with Three & Me in the future!

What an amazing experience! Claire is an incredible instructor and makes these projects so fun and truly easy for those like me who are not artsy! She is extremely organized and everything is so well thought out and ready in advance. I can hardly wait to take more classes in the future. I would highly recommend Three & Me!

I just went to my first Three & Me workshop. It was a wonderful experience. Claire is a warm hostess and an excellent instructor. Making everyone feel engaged and successful. The materials are top notch and every detail is well thought out. It’s a great escape for a personal creative moment or a fun way to connect with friends and family while expressing your inner artist.

Such a fun string art class tonight! Claire is a wonderful instructor and everything was so beautiful; the display, the art, the examples, the supplies, the snacks! So fun!

This is truly a fun night out! Claire's instruction is helpful, humorous and fun! I love how she allowed us options to be creative and put our own twist on our projects. There is a lot of attention to detail with the set-up, supplies and refreshments which did not go unnoticed.  I can't wait for the next project!

What a fun evening! Claire has thought of every detail and guides you step by step through the whole process! She is such an encourager and makes you feel like you have just made a masterpiece! I highly recommend her classes! I can't wait to take another one!

I had such a fun evening! Three & Me had everything presented beautifully and organized in a way that made it easy to follow along for those of us that aren't necessarily crafters by nature! Thank you for a fun night!

I craft a lot at home, but doing crafts in a class with friends is so much better. THREE & ME makes it so easy to do the things I am interested in, without having to find the supplies and figure out how to do it on my own. I've just booked my next ladies night with Claire! I can't wait. 

Vancouver, WA

Tonight, a bunch of lucky ladies got to craft along side one of the very best. Claire's heart, is hands done one of the very best and those of us who were there got to create something amazing that we will proudly display in our homes. Many laughs and much fun was had by all. I highly recommend one of Three & Me classes to anyone in the area! Spread kindness around like confetti!!

Art is not my strength. I don't have a creative bone in my body. So I came to a workshop because my friend made me... and I made something I now love. I was expecting to sit and watch, but landed up getting fully involved! My husband and kids don't believe that I made it myself. I'm coming again and I'm bringing my sister... she's even worse at crafts than me.
