Nothing like a totally personalized inexpensive DIY sign to make me happy. Do you all make your own signs? Are you lucky enouigh to have a machine to make your stencils?
I have been wanting to do something like this for a while now and finally got around to it. I truly love making signs and I do not have a silhouette. I use carbon paper, stencils, and copies to bring my signs to life. This was was so easy and looks fun above my powder room on our main floor.
I didn't even need to use carbon paper, just traced and outlined with pencil and could see enough to pain
t my design.
Paint your wood black
Tape off and paint edge white
Use stencils for your letters
Print a copy of your image
Trace your image onto the wood
Fill in with a white paint pen
So, it isn't perfect but it looks fun anyway!
I ended up going over the white a few times and used a paintbriush for my last coat BUT I would not do that again. It got a bit bumpy and you can see the stroke marks. I was just impatient waiting for the paint pen to dry!
