EVERY Fire Station needs a fireman and a fire bell! 
Did you see my FIRE STATION post a few weeks ago?
 The Before and After even got a very nice feature over on
Apartment Therapy
Well I purchased the
Bell
Fire Bell with Red Lanyard - 4.5 pounds
and
Fire Suit!
Aeromax Jr. Fire Fighter Suit with Helmet, Size 4/6 - Tan

Aren’t they adorable!!
The station is almost complete!

I also made a sign and added it to the bridge.
003
Here is what I used:
  • An old cedar fence picket ~{$1 at Home Depot}
  • cardboard letters~{ Hobby Lobby}
  • craft paint
  • silhouette cut outs.
{I used the same technique as my Farm Fresh Eggs sign.}

First I laid everything out for proper spacing and to make sure I didn’t need to cut the picket
006
I gave the picket a coat of white paint.

After the paint was dry, I traced all the letters and cut outs.
016
Then I took a small brush and filled in with paint!
021
For my ‘fire’ I gave it 3 colors…
022
All traced and painted….took me less than an hour.
024
I purchased the fire emblem & flame in the Silhouette online store {99cents each}
Then typed the words FIRE DEPT. in the emblem and
cut it out on card stock.
Then on each end I used it as a stencil.
025
With a foam sponge I dabbed some white paint
027
and there you have it…….
