Make your own family signs

Family sign.  Using $5 wood plaques from Michael's
 & Hobby Lobby.  Then spray paint and add a 
$11 vinyl decal.  Less than $20 dollar gift.
Buy the vinyl decal 

Once you get your vinyl and buy and paint your wood sign.
Here are the different sizes I purchased from Michaels

Then pull back the white backing, Leaving the
 vinyl lettering on the tape.


Then Place the vinyl decal as you want it on to the wood.
Run a credit card over the tape a few times 
making the vinyl press onto the wood 


Then peel back the tape slowly making sure the 
vinyl letters come on to wood and off the tape

Lots of different styles.

Whole family name sign


Great housewarming gift or Wedding gift





This sign can be waterproof with some clear 
paint that is used to weather proof decks.

This sign was a gift for a man that had just 
finished building his own garage.




This one I just cut down a piece of wood that was 4ft by
 4 inches.  I cut it down to 21 inches long 


Cute Family sign


Another one that includes all the family names

We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.


In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
