I used my Silhouette cutting machine & program for this project, I purchased the pointing finger from their downloads. The font used for the “Sleepy Hallow Inn” is Algerian.
I prepped my sign by giving it a quick coat of a medium gray acrylic, it basically acted like a primer to cover up the old lettering since my sign would be primarily white. Once the gray is dry give it a couple good coats of your white paint. Be sure that the white paint is completely dry before applying your vinyl stencil. Once stencil is applied use your foam brush to apply your black paint. When it’s almost dry carefully remove your stencil by peeling it up. If everything is dry and you want to distress your sign a bit use your sandpaper around the edges and in certain spots on the sign. This allowed some of the gray to peak through, and even a tiny bit of the orange original lettering which looked good. I love that this sign fits right in with my decor.
