How to Make a Wood Sign

Last week, I recorded a #Live on the Prairie Pine Designs Facebook page to show you how to make a wood sign! If you missed it, no worries, because I will be going #Live again to show you how to create one. 

In the video, I mention a number of materials and supplies I use. I wanted make this post so that you will be able to use it as a resource to use when creating wood signs for the first time! 

Here is the list of the products I used!

Silhouette Cameo 3 – The Silhouette cameo is the ultimate DIY machine. It uses a small blade to cut over 100 materials, including vinyl to make vinyl stencils! You create you need design in the Designer Studio Software and send it to your Silhouette machine to cut. Most designs take 1-3 minutes to cut.

ORAMASK 813 Stencil Film or GreenStar Sign Vinyl – This is the material used for your stencil.

Vinyl Transfer Tape – This is used to transfer your stencil to your prepped wood.

Painters Tape 

Chalk Paint (Folkart, Waverly, or homemade brands) or Latex Paint

Miniwax Stain

Pine Common Board – found or bought at your local lumber Store or department store such as Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards.
