If you’re new around here, welcome to my Dollar Tree DIY Series. I love finding hidden treasures at Dollar Tree and transforming them into a piece of art. For today’s DIY, I’m sharing how to transform some Fall Directional Signs into a cute and girly Halloween decorative item that’s perfect for a child’s playhouse or play kitchen.
- Dollar Tree Directional Signs x2
- Hot Glue Gun
- Cricut Maker
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Paint Brushes
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 “Whimsy Spooky” so I used pastels and created an almost ombre color way.
While your paint dries on the signs, use your Cricut Maker to cut out your letters for each sign. This will take several hours to complete so be patient! If you don’t have a Cricut, you could also use stickers or precut wooden letters for this step. I also mirrored my design when I did my cuts, just in case the chipboard started peeling. I used the following FREE fonts from dafont.com: Pumpkinpie, Chicken Pie, Naughty Monster and Avocado.
Paint the letters in your desired color or leave natural. Then once dry, hot glue them to each sign.
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 several hours, I was able to complete this project in one night. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below or dm me on Instagram! Always happy to help!
