Supplies Needed:

Steps to make a DIY America Wood Sign

1 – To begin, wipe down your 5 foot wooden board to clean it up from any debris.

2 – Grab your Minwax Wiping Stain and Finish. Wipe over your entire board, edges as well, with a rag to give it a good stain.

3 – Be sure your stain is nice and even throughout.

4 – With a towel, just give a good wipe.

5- Grab your “God Bless America” letter stencils and place on your board. Position how you like.

6 – Grab red, white, and blue acrylic paints. Squirt a bit out on a paper plate, construction paper, etc.

7 – With your jumbo finger sponge daubers or a painting sponge and some blue paint, begin dabbing/pouncing “God bless” from your stencil set on your board. Be sure you are holding your stencil in place as you work, adding a bit of paint so it doesn’t bleed through.

8 – When you are finished with your painting sponge daubers, you can rinse them out, and use them again. Just don’t forget about them.

9 – Grab your red acrylic paint next, and paint your star. Be sure your acrylic is thick and not transparent.

10 – With white paint next, dab your letter “A” remembering to hold your stencils in place as you work. 

11 –  Letter “M” will be red. Alternate your colors, with white and red as you paint in your letters for America on your sign. Repeat throughout your sign.

12 – Paint the tiny stars found throughout the letters of “America” on your stencil to accentuate your patriotic colors for this project. 

13 – Now that you are finished carefully remove your stencils and let it dry completely. 

14 – To seal, especially if your sign will be placed outside, use a polyurethane spray to finish up your board.
