Are you ready to learn how to make a rustic wood sign? A few weeks back I made a rustic trick or treat sign. I have used it when photographing my kid’s costumes for the blog. In fact, you can see it in the pictures on this zombie girl costume. I thought it would be cute to show them “saying” trick or treat! I thought I would give y’all a quick tutorial on how to make your own.
Supplies to make a rustic Halloween sign:
- scrap board
- white paint
- small Halloween stamps
- Staz-On ink
- black craft paint
- Cricut machine (see which is my favorite here)
- white cardstock
How to Make a Rustic Wood Sign:
Give your scrap wood piece a SUPER LIGHT coat of white paint. As in you can still see the wood in places. I just wanted to lighten the wood a shade and give the piece a rustic feel. Plus for the next step, the stamps stand out better against the white background.
Wait for your white paint to dry. It should not take long as the coat is super light. Then I broke out my stamps and ink and started randomly stamping Halloween themed items around the wood. Staz-On ink works best for projects like these as it will dry quickly and really stay put.
Wait for your stamps to dry. In the meantime, use your Cricut machine to cut out a “trick or treat” stencil out of a scary font. Okay I think the font looks a little scary…you might not. Then stencil on your writing with black craft paint. Want to see more about making stencils with your Cricut? You can see our post here for more information.
Let that dry and you are done! Now you know how to make a rustic wood sign for just about any occasion. Just change up the stamps and stencil for any holiday or event.
When the kids aren’t holding it up for blog pics, I am displaying this sign in my home for Halloween.
