We are so excited for this time of year! There’s just so much to love about Fall and Halloween! Fall crafting being one of those things and this cute Trick or Treat Plank Sign is such a perfect addition to any Halloween decor.
We made a sign just like this a couple years ago, this is a slight variation from the Trick or Treat sign we made previously. The biggest change is we use vinyl on this version. (Click HERE to see the other version.) We also simplified the bow, which we think is actually cuter! Let’s get to the tutorial so you can make one of your own!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Wood plank sign
- White paint
- Foam paint brush
- TRICK or TREAT vinyl
- Hot glue gun
- Sanding block (optional)
How to make it
Start with a wood plank sign. We made ours using 1×4’s cut to 18 inches. For more details on how to make the plank sign see HERE. For this sign, we used a brad nailer to attach the cross boards. Paint the sign white. One or two coats is all you need depending on the look you want- one coat will give you a nice white washed look, tow coats will give you more coverage.
Apply the vinyl
Once the sign is completely dry, it’s time to apply the vinyl. We designed and cut our TRICK or TREAT words using the Silhouette Cameo. We cut them as separate words, weeded the vinyl and placed transfer tape on them.
Add the bow
