Learning how to make wooden signs and handmade frames has saved money. In addition, I also get to customize my signs and frames for my home decor.
I will be decorating the dessert table with these cute fabric pumpkins they are one of my favorite projects.

After designing my Halloween sign I printed it out and taped the pieces together.
Supplies and Tools
What Kind of Wood is Best for Signs?
We have used all kinds of wood for signs, but the wood we have used the most is plywood. We use upcycled wood such as pallet wood and scrap wood.
I cut a rectangle out of plywood and sanded the front side. I wanted to use the same colors I used in my other Halloween signs so they all coordinated.
After painting the board I used a heat gun to quickly dry it.
To transfer the sign design I cut the print out down to the size of the sign.
Place the graphite paper with the transferring side against the paint.
Place the design over the graphite paper. Using a ballpoint pen trace the outline of the words. I added some painters tape to hold my design in place while tracing.
After I was happy with my transferred design using my paint pen I started filling in the stenciled lettering.
For the orange SWEET, I used the same orange paint I used in the other two Halloween signs.

More Wood Project DIY Signs
I made these signs last year for Christmas and I made the same style frames.
I made DIY wood frames for these black and white 2 D wall art. They were a project my son did for an art class. I have them hanging in my laundry room.
This pretty DIY faux Moroccan tile sign was for our bathroom.
