Looking to add some Happy and Scary to your front door this Halloween Season. Happy Halloween Sign DIY using Paint and Stencils.
School has started and before you know it Halloween will be here. Have you started thinking about your Halloween decorating, Sweet Friends. The front door is the perfect spot for a Happy Halloween sign.
Do you wish you could make a Halloween Sign in just a few hours? Well, today I am going to show you just how to do it using a little paint and my favorite set of stencils, Essential Stencils.
Essential Stencils are thick and sturdy and can be used over and over again. You can purchase the stencils through CreateWithCynthiaShop.com. When you are at checkout be sure to use code CWC for 10% off.
For theses two signs; the Happy Halloween Sign and the Cat Sign, I used one stencil, the Halloween Stencil which includes 5 pieces.
Materials needed to make the Halloween sign:
- Wood – I used one piece that was 8 x 10 for the cat, and I used a 5 x 6. I used a pine board, but you could also use plywood. Most Home Stores and Lumbar yards will cut the board for you.
- 3 inch barnwood to frame out sign (this step is optional)
- Stain – I used Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint in the Dark and Decrepit Stain. It is an all in one stain.
- White Paint – I used Rustoleum Chalked Ultra Matte Paint in Linen White.
- Clear Sealer Top Coat – I used Rustoleum Clear Sealer.
- Paint Brush – I picked up mine from the dollar store .
- Stencil Paint Brush – this is a paint brush with a flat tip.
- Stencil – I used the Halloween Stencil from Essential Stencils.
- Sand Paper.
- Frog Tape.
Directions to make the Happy Halloween Sign:
- Stain board and let dry.
- Apply stencil to board using Frog Tape to hold it into place.
- Pounce or swirl white paint onto stencil and let dry.
- Sand board with 220 grit sand paper. Do this lightly, just to create an aged look.
- Seal board with clear sealer or Top Coat.
- Frame sign with wood if desired.
These signs were so easy to make and literally took less than an hour. Enjoy the process and have fun.
