Dollar Tree DIY: Halloween Directional Sign
I love finding hidden treasures at Dollar Tree and transforming them into a piece of art that matches my style. I was recently scrolling through Pinterest and happened upon a pin from sierralmiller.com that used these directional signs from Dollar Tree to make this adorable pastel Halloween directional sign. For today’s DIY, I’m sharing how to transform some Fall Directional Signs I found into a cute and girly Halloween decorative item that’s perfect for a child’s playhouse or play kitchen.
Using two of the Dollar Tree directional signs as a base, carefully remove the signs from each stake.
Paint each piece in your desired color scheme. I wanted mine to be similar to the one I found on Pinterest so I used purple, pinks and oranges and made it sort of look like an ombré. I found that sanding each piece some made the paint stick better. This particular sign had glitter on it so I sanded that off too. I also removed any glue left after removing each piece. I had to do several coats of paint and painted the front, back and edges. I also painted the stakes white.
While your paint dries on the signs, use your Cricut to cut out your letters for each sign. If you don’t have a Cricut, you could also use stickers or pre-cut wooden letters for this step. If you have a Cricut Maker you could cut the letters out of chipboard. I used the following FREE fonts from dafont.com: Pumpkin Pie, Chicken Pie, Naughty Monster and Avocado. The cat, witches hat and ghost were all found on canva.com.
Using transfer tape, apply the words to each sign. If using wood letters you can paint them and then apply with the hot glue gun.
Plan out the order for your signs and then hot glue each one to the painted stake. Due to spacing, I only used 5 of the 6 signs.
That’s it! While it did take a while to paint everything, it really wasn’t that hard of a project and turned out so cute! I can’t wait to use it for my decorations this year! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below or dm me on Instagram! Always happy to help!
