Upcycle a Dollar Store sign to create a farmhouse inspired Walt Disney quote with just some paint and letter stickers.
- Dollar Store Sign – 11” by 6”
- Americana acrylic paint from DecoArt – Milk Chocolate; Lamp Black; Country Red; Titanium White
- Paintbrush – 1” flat wash
- Letter Stickers – Foam 1” bubble style; ¾” block style; ¼” typewriter style
- Buttons – two large white 1 ¼” in diameter
- Washi or Painters Tape
- Liquid Glue with fine tip applicator
- Craft Knife
If the frame of the sign is not already black, base coat sign frame with Lamp Black and then let dry. Dry brush Milk Chocolate randomly over the black frame to give the appearance of wood grain. Let dry.
Apply washi or painters tape on inside edges of the sign. Measure down 6 ½” from top and apply a horizontal line of tape. Base coat the top portion of the sign with Lamp Black. Apply a second coat, if necessary. Let dry and remove horizontal line of tape.
Apply horizontal line of tape at the bottom edge of the black paint. Base coat the bottom of the sign with Country Red. Apply a second coat, if necessary. Let dry and remove all tape.
Select stickers to spell out quote (or an alternate Disney favorite). Money Saving Tip: dimensional letter stickers can be painted to match any project! Gently apply stickers to their plastic packaging and paint all letters Titanium White. Let dry.
Measure and lightly pencil in guidelines for the quote. Carefully apply letter stickers.
Apply small letter stickers to spell out author’s name using the tip of a craft knife for precise placement.
Attach two white buttons to the red section of the sign with Liquid Glue.
