Vintage reclaimed wood sign - I imagine the art teacher painting the flower and all the children's names being written in as part of the fine black lines - kind of Monet-ish (can't see it unless you look real close....)
Make these signs by taking and old piece of wood, paint it using a white wash technique. Print your words backwards on an inkjet printer. Place printed paper face down on the wood, using a paint brush wet the paper SLIGHTLY. Take the top end of a pen or sharpie and burnish the letters for a more uniform look. Attach a wire hanger and your done.
