I love making things I see around – I’m all about DIY! I currently have a weakness for quote signs, sticking favorite quotes onto a board and hanging it on the walls. I’ve seen this Let’s Stay Home quote floating around on pillows and signs and wanted to make one for myself – isn’t it awesome?!
And I’ve got a quick tutorial to show you how to make your own (no matter what quote you want to use!)
Diy Quote Sign, Let’s Stay Home
-Wood Board the size you want your sign to be.
-optional: trim pieces if you want a boarder around your sign
-favorite fonts – I used the Summer Font pack from FontBundles (and they’re on deal right now, save 95%, wowza!!) —UPDATE: that particular deal is over, but you can find more similar font deals HERE before they’re gone!
-cutting machine (I use the Silhouette Cameo)
-paint in the color of your choice.
First up, paint your board the background color – I went with white. While that’s drying, design your quote. You can set the software to the size of your board, even if it’s bigger than the cutting area. Then just rearrange it and cut the words one at a time. I used the fonts ARTUR and Elastic for my sign (I know you’ll ask!)
I like to use contact paper when I’m cutting stencils, so it doesn’t waste my vinyl stock 😉
Peel the letters out and use the cutout as a stencil. Stick the stencils down on your board.
To aim for nice, crisp lines, paint a thin layer of the base coat of your board over the stencil first.
Then paint the color you’d like your qoute. I went with gray (surprise, surprise).
Let dry completely. When dry, you can peel back the stencil and your amazing lines will be revealed!
Next I sanded the letters to give them a bit of distressing. This is optional.
Then I busted out my new favorite power tool and tacked on the trim boards.
That’s all there is to it!
UPDATE, that summer font bundle is no longer available, but there are other awesome bundle deals, so check them out!!
