Design design

Before you can start with the manual work, you should first consider which shape your door plate should have, which size is suitable, which color is required and very importantly: What is written on it - a word or rather a whole sentence? Let your creativity run free and, if necessary, seek inspiration on the Internet or in magazines. As soon as you have an exact idea of ​​your door sign, you can start.

Make the template

Design the text of your choice in different fonts and sizes on your computer. Then the favorite sketch is printed out and attached to photo cardboard with adhesive tape. Then you can cut out the letters with a cutter - put a cutting mat underneath. For a durable stencil, it's best to use PVC hard film (you can find it in craft supplies). If letters such as "b" or "o" are not to be fully painted, leave small bars at the top and bottom that hold the inner surfaces in place.

Decorate the shield

Fix the crafted stencil with adhesive tape on the sign. Dab a little color on the stencil with a small round brush or sponge. If the lettering and decoration are dry, seal the sign with a transparent protective varnish so that it stays beautiful for longer.
