Let's get started! You can check out this list for more DIY products. First you'll need to determine how tall you want your sign to be & cut it using a saw or have the store do that for you. This is the saw kit I have, but this saw combo kit is currently available.
I found a font that I liked, edited the size to fit the page & printed it on paper. I used those letters as my template in this video. You could also buy a stencil & use that to outline your letters or pattern in pencil. Make sure you press hard while outlining this will help when you are working on the next step.
The next thing I did was stain my board to give some depth to the paint colors I'd be using. You can always skip to the next step. If you've been subscribed for a while or follow me on stories, you know pops of blue is my jam!
After following drying instructions on the packaging I grabbed my paint & went to town on the background color & painting my letters. 💫 A quick tip that you probably haven't thought of when getting paint is grabbing those home depot paint samples! You can get some for as low as $2 & trust me that goes pretty far on projects like this.
The last thing I did was touch up areas that required it & sealed it, since it would be outside.
I love connecting with you guys, so make sure & tell me what you think below. Stay tuned to next weeks blog post where I share another quick DIY. If you have any questions, comments, tips or tricks to add to the DIY vertical sign blog post, please leave them in the comments below.
