Okay, so back to this edition of A Pinteresting Saturday...this is my project for the week...I might be in love with it!

I am in the middle of a room decorating marathon over here. Nesting has officially settled in and my to-do list is HUGE...just like my belly.

At the top of my list is Oldest's room. His new room has a little bit of a Stars Wars Theme. I have been pinning ideas for a little bit now and I fell in love with this poster the minute I saw it. I immediately made plans to recreate it.


I pulled out one of my handy dandy flat canvases from my craft closet. I taped off the edges and slapped two coats of navy blue paint on it. Then I used my favorite crafting toy...my Silhouette...and I cut out the shape of Yoda's head and the lettering out of vinyl. After that, all I had to do was try my hardest to get it on straight...which is a little difficult when you are a just-make-it-straight-by-eyeballing-it kind of gal like me.

I pulled it off pretty well.


I love the little Yoda silhouette. To get the Yoda head, I simply did a google search for Yoda silhouette in the images. Once I found one I liked, I imported the image into my Silhouette program. Once the image was in the program, I could use the machine to cut out the shape...have I mentioned I love this machine yet?

The font I used was BEBAS.


My other favorite part of this sign...well the wise after thought of Yoda at the end..."yes, hmmmm". My kids kept repeating that all day.


Another project done! Whew! I can't wait to add this sign to my other projects for Oldest's room.

Have a marvelous Saturday friends!!! What pinterest project is on your list this week?

This is fantastic! I just got the it all done on my silhouette and now just have to go get a canvas out of my craft room. My son has a Star Wars room and he will love this. His birthday is in two weeks and this will be a cool last minute addition for him. Thanks for the great idea. :)
