Ever since I took my Christmas wreath down, my door has been looking pretty bare. There are tons of signs out there for sale but they are expensive and never quite what I wanted.
So I made a collection of 16 different sign designs that you can use on your front door or around your home.
Most of these are welcome signs but I also included a cute “no solicitation” sign in case you’ve had too many strangers come knocking!
This sign is all me from the design to the colors and it looks perfect on my front door!
Plus it was inexpensive to make, I bought the sign for $6 from Hobby Lobby and I think I spent $1.50 on the ribbon (with a coupon!). The paint and scrap vinyl I already had on hand.
Don’t need this for yourself? What about a housewarming or Mother’s day gift? These signs are so cute I am sure you won’t have trouble finding a home for one!
I am including downloadable instructions but the principle is very simple.
1. Gather all your supplies – a sign, scrap vinyl and transfer tape, paint, sandpaper, hot glue gun, and ribbon.
2. Measure your sign and resize your design to fit. Cut our your design in vinyl and weed away all the extra vinyl.
3. Cut transfer tape that is a little larger than your design. Lay it over top of your design and rub it down firmly.
4. Lift up the transfer tape, your design should come with. Carefully position and lay it down on your sign. Rub it down firmly.
5. Lift up the transfer tape, your design should stay behind. If you wanted, you could stop here and have a really cute sign but if you want a painted look continue to the next step.
6. Paint over your design. I highly recommend that you use a “pounce” motion so that you are applying the paint straight down (as opposed to stroking side to side). This will help create cleaner edges.
7. Let the paint dry and then slowly peel up the vinyl. I had a rough cut board so the paint still got under the letters a little but I actually really love this more country look.
8. I used sand paper to sand the edges and added a ribbon and flower to the top using the hot glue gun to finish it up.
*Tip: you may also want to glue a little felt to the back of your sign so that when the wind blows it doesn’t “knock” on your door.
