How to make a custom sign

Start off with a wood block in the craft section of any store like Wal Mart, Hobby Lobby for 97 cents or 99 cents

You’ll also need

  •  some paint brushes (small ones)
  • acrylic paint –  I bought white and turquoise for this project
  • stencils

First paint the base color:

Wait a few minutes until it dries and start stenciling the letters with your second color:

Make sure you press the stencils tightly against the wood or else you will end up not staying in the lines

 

Variations: You can cut out craft paper with nice designs as a background or buy sticker letters so you aren’t painting in the letters yourself.  Make holes in the plaque to hang on a ribbon.
