DIY Sign with Reclaimed Wood

I have been making quite a few Halloween crafts this week, and this one could be customized for any holiday or just as a year round sign to display in your home. My in-laws brought me a whole bunch of reclaimed wood that they found, and I love the white washed boards that I used for this project. I was actually able to make this sign using all items I already had at home. Here is what you'll need:

-A piece of reclaimed wood, size will depend on what you plan to put on it
-Paint, I used a Folk Art black acrylic paint
-Stencil or cut your own using silhouette machine and cardstock
-Sponge brush

Homemade Liquid Water Color Paint for Kids

I don't know about all of you, but we tend to go through our markers really fast. Either they dry out from all the coloring or lids get left off. Usually they get thrown in the trash, but here is a way to recycle and reuse them for a fun new craft! 
My boys have been really into painting lately, so this was perfect free craft to do with them. There are also a couple different ways you can use the paints.

7 Layer Dip

A classic recipe that always gets eaten up at parties, 7-Layer Dip! I made this for a 4th of July Party the other night and thought I would share the recipe. You can also find recipes below for the homemade guacamole and salsa that I used in the layer dip.
