Are you the person who looks through Pinterest thinking how the heck do all these people have perfect handwriting? If you’re like me, I was not blessed with the talent of good handwriting so when it was time to design my own signs, I needed to come up with a way to fake it.
This may seem like a few extra steps but follow through and this process will be a breeze as you continue to make your wedding signs!
2. #2 Pencil
3. Craft Paint – Two Colors
4. Paint Brush
1. Set up your text in either Word or a design program. Remember you will be transferring the text so get creative with the fonts!
2. Print out your design. Since your sign may be larger than 8.5×11, be sure to select “poster” when you print and this will allow you to then piece the pages together.
3. Flip your printout over and trace the back with a #2 pencil. Apply pressure when tracing so there is enough to transfer onto the wood.
4. Flip your printout back over and cut around your text so it will be easier to place on the wood. Then, tape together so the words are seamless on the page.
5. Tape your text right side up on your wood sign.
6. Trace over your text, this time on the printed side. Again, be sure to apply pressure as this will determine how well your transfer will appear on the wood. This step does not need to be neat!
7. Once you have traced over the entire design, remove the paper to reveal your transfer.
8. Complete your sign by painting over the transfer with craft paint. As you continue to use this trick, you’ll be creating signs in no time at all!
We hope you found this DIY sign trick useful and will be able to use it for your wedding signage!
