Do It Yourself Fresh Baked Pie Sign

So, I have been dying to have a Fresh Baked Pie sign from World Market forever but any store near me is sold out and the online store is sold out as well.  I signed up to be on a waiting list a long time ago and so far there are still no signs available.  Every time I see someone on Instagram posting a photo with that sign I'm so envious.  After recently seeing another gorgeous photo featuring the sign I got to thinking how simple it would be to just make one.  Sure, it might not be the same or as cute but I could still have one that is similar.
I picked up a distressed ivory photo frame in an 8x10 inch size and removed the backing and then used a little E6000 glue to hold the glass into the frame.  You want to make sure your frame has a little lip that the glass sits in so you have somewhere to glue it to.  My frame came from Home Goods and was super cheap and it was great that it was the color I wanted and it was already distressed so no work for me.

I then cut out my "Fresh Baked Pies Baked Daily" with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used just basic black vinyl and then applied it to the front side of the glass. If you are really gutsy you can also paint the wording onto your glass by using a template but I wanted this to be quick and easy so I chose the vinyl route.

When I finished mine and tried to take a photo of it I hated the glare and shadows it was creating as you can see in the above photo.  To remedy this I grabbed my can of Rust-Oleum Frosted Glass Spray Paint and gave the back side of the glass a few coats and that solved all my problems and you can barely tell I frosted it.
   This frosted glass spray paint works great for projects and I'm sure even to make a window more private even though I've not done that.
All in all this cost me about the price of the frame because I had everything else on hand!
