Printable Halloween Signs
How do you make a homemade sign?
A sign is could be a good decoration to fill up the blank space on your wall, but it sometimes being too pricey or not customizable. So today, I will give a tutorial about how to make your own Halloween signs.
- You have to prepare the materials. To make a sign, you will need a large piece of 1/2 inch plywood (customized to the size you need), 2 paint colors (one for the background color and one for the letters), a paintbrush, contact paper or adhesive vinyl, transfer paper, Mod Podge, brad nailer or hot glue, 1x2 board in the length you need to frame your plywood.
- Get your plywood, and then paint it using the first color.
- Create your design. You can use an online website design for this step. Insert your board’s dimensions, and design it as spooky as you wanted. Don’t forget to write down some interesting Halloween related words combination.
- Make your stencil. You can make your stencil on the contact paper or adhesive vinyl using the specific printer, or project them using a projector, or just handwrite it – if you’re quite good at it.
- Put your stencil to the board, and coat it with Mod Podge. Let it dry.
- After the stencil dries, you can cover the board with another paint. After that, let the paint dries.
- While waiting for the paint dries, you can make the frame. You just need to cut the two sides and then the top and bottom pieces for fit. You could also use a lattice for a smaller profile frame. Don’t forget to stain it before attaching it to the board.
- After the paint dries, you can attach the frame using a brad nailer or hot glue and your Halloween sign is ready!
