HOW TO MAKE A WELCOME SIGN USING PAPER, PENCIL, AND PAINT | EASY AND CHEAP! FREE PRINTABLE | $3 DIY


hey guys what’s up it’s Laci thank you
so much for tuning into this video. This video is going to be an easy DIY welcome
sign I’m really excited because now that it’s starting to get warmer out we can
take a lot of the projects outside I also have a couple plans on some outside
projects and decorating the porch and things like that in the works so if
you’re not subscribed make sure you subscribe and let’s just get on with the
DIY you want to get a board that the one I’m using is 6 foot tall but you can
pick any kind of size board that you want for this project then I’m using
Minwax and espressos 273 to stain my board I printed these off using
PicMonkey and just use an 8 by 10 template and made the letters as big as
I could I lay them out about two inches apart from each other I printed these
off on regular paper and I just laid it down onto the wood and I took a really
sharp pencil and just outline my letter sorry guys that it’s all wobbly my
eight-year-old daughter was filming this for me and when you lift up your paper
you can tell that it basically just carved the wood I just took my pencil
and outlined it again just so I could see it better and then I took some
acrylic paint I used white but you guys can use whatever color you want and I
took a small paintbrush and I just outlined the letter and then I used a
bigger paintbrush to fill it in and this took a couple coats so it does take some
patience but I made this for three dollars and I think that it turned out
so good and it definitely does not look like a three dollar DIY thank you guys
so much for watching and I will see you in the next video bye

  1. Hello Laci Jane followers…………EzFaux Decor has one day left on a GIVEAWAY https://giveaway.amazon.com/p/f59694bd896dd25c

  2. Will that acryilic craft paint hold up outside if it doesn't have a clear sealer coat over it? I know some craft paints are ok for exterior use but I don't think this brand is

  3. Oh wow I thought those were vinyl letters! Looks great! I’d be so paranoid of messing up I hate painting things haha 😆

  4. I copied your design and turned it over and stained the other side and wrote it again and painted it red, white and blue for the 4th of July and memorial day. The first letter W I painted red then next one white and the next blue . I sat it on my front porch for memorial day ..

  5. So cute and easy! Would you reccomend sanding it or is it not really neccessary? And what sealer do you recommend?

  6. I use the 5" Roman stencil from Hobby Lobby that cost $6 with 40% off coupon. I've done several and it takes about half an hour each (not including any drying time) from first coat of paint, doing the stencil and sealing.

  7. This is amazing! I’ve been wanting to make this sign for my home for a long time and have not found letter stencils that big for it. What you did was great and I would’ve never thought of it. Thank you!! You have gained a follower!!
