GIANT HALLOWEEN SIGN


Halloween Yard Sign
Plywood Halloween Sign
The Winfield Collection specializes in do-it-yourself project patterns and has a huge selection of paper transfer templates specifically designed for creating Halloween props, including signs.

Their giant "Halloween Yard Card" pattern allows you to create a giant Halloween sigh using and entire four foot by eight foot sheet of plywood and looks great in front of your house or as a Halloween yard decoration.

Tools & Materials    
Sheet of Plywood Ballpoint Pen or Stylus Water-based Craft Paints
Halloween Sign Pattern Transfer Paper Artist Paint Brushes

Transferring the Sign Pattern
Making this big plywood Halloween sign is very straight forward and begins by placing a sheet of the special pattern transfer paper onto a full sheet of plywood as indicated in the sign pattern instructions.

Next, the pattern you want to use is laid on top of the transfer sheet face down close to the edge of the plywood. Lastly, you transfer the full-size pattern lines onto the plywood by tracing the pattern with a pen, pencil or stylus.

Painting the Sign
To finish the project, paint the sign with the colors as indicated in the instructions or to suite your own taste. Using the areas and lines created by the template makes painting as easy as “painting by numbers” and ensures your project will look great when you’re finished.

Securing the Sign
For our plywood Halloween sign, we just nailed a piece of four foot long two by four on either side of the back and mounted these posts in the ground. Or you can temporarily attach it to your fence with nails or screws and use an outdoor flood light to illuminate it.
