Video Tutorial – Resting Witch Face Sign
Here are the steps I took to make my sign
Step 1 – Take a metal scrapper and scrape off the glitter. Then take a 60 grit sanding block and sand the sign. Next take the painters tape and cover the top piece of the banner.
Step 2 – Paint the sign. Since I was using white it took 3 coats. Give it dry time between coats. You can also use a heat gun to speed up the dry time. If you get paint on the edges you can use baby wipes to clean your edges up.
Step 3 – Open the file in your favorite cutting software. Cut vinyl to the size you need for your project. Weed your vinyl between your paint coats
Step 4 – Once the sign is dry take the brown paint and a liner brush and paint\draw thin lines across the sign to look like wood. I had a metal ruler, you could use a ruler, wood, etc. Once you have that done take a brush, make up sponge or rag and go around the edges of the sign. You can see the technique I used in the video. Then take the rag and blend to look distressed. Especially around the lines to give it that distressed look.
Step 5 – Using the same rag stain paint the top piece of wood. If you have some paint or something on the edge of your sign you can also use the rag to cover the edges.
Step 6 – Now its time to apply the vinyl. Take your transfer tape and apply it to the word base. Then using your squeegee apply it to your sign. Make sure you leave room at the tope for a bow and some florals.
Next take the witch vinyl and the parchment paper and put the witch on the parchment paper. Find your placement. Attach the top part of the transfer tape down making a hinge. Then lift up the hinge to remove the parchment paper and then apply the vinyl down.
Next take the broom bristles and the broom stick and align them up together with your transfer tape and parchment if needed. Apply the full broom to the sign. Watch your spacing to get it on the letter F.
Next apply the witch hat. You can hang it on the R or the g in Resting. Then apply the hat band and then the buckle.
Step 7 – Time to make the bow. Since this is a smaller sign we will make a smaller bow. I took 3 rolls of ribbon and cut 8″ to 9″ lengths. I cut 2 of each. Then take the first strip and fold over ⅔ of it in a loop. Repeat this for all 6 loops. It should look like a floral bouquet. Take the floral wire or wire tie and tie the bow off. Now fluff and pull the ends out to form a bow. Trim the ends in dove tail or angles. Check out the video for the tutorial on the bow.
Step 8 – Take some floral berries and attach it to the top of the sign with hot glue gun. Then glue the bow to the tope of the sign. Fluff and arrange.
Step 9 – Enjoy!!!
