How to make a sign easily.
Sounds impossible right?

Chalk Couture has made sign-making so easy for me. I have made all kinds of decor with Chalk Couture, but the signs are always my favorite. I love signs, but never felt confident to create them myself. They never turned out right, my handwriting isn’t sign-worthy and I never could get the paint just right when I tried to make one.
Then, I started using Chalk Couture and that all changed. Now, when I want a sign, I don’t stress about it. I can come up with an idea and literally have it come to fruition in minutes with Chalk Couture. See more Chalk Couture projects HERE and also on my IGTV HERE.

This video shows you how easy this sign was to make:
Or, you can follow along with these easy steps:
- Paint the wood sign whatever color you want. I used a pretty blue color from Dixie Belle Paint.
- Once the paint is dry, I used the Chalkology Paste Wax all over the board. Since this was a new board, I wanted to make sure the transfer didn’t pull up any of the paste when I pulled it off. The wax helps with that. I don’t use it all the time.
- Cut and place the transfer where you want it on the wood sign.
- Make sure to press the transfer down especially around the words and pictures on the transfer.
- Open the Chalkology Paste and stir if needed.
- Use a multi-tool or a Popsicle stick to get some of the paste out of the jar and put it around the transfer.
- Use a squeegee to pull the paste all over the transfer. Make sure to get every inch of the transfer covered in paste.
- Pull the transfer and clean it with water or a cleaning wipe.
- If you get any of the paste where you don’t want it, use a cleaning wipe or a wet paper towel to get it off.
- Let the sign dry and then you are ready to hang it up!
