Getting my booth ready…part one sign tutorial

I knew that once I committed to doing this Girls night out
that I would be opening up a whole new world

by that I mean,
how to stage my products.
I have so many ideas that I am not exactly sure where to start!

First things first
I need people to know where they are shopping
when they come to my table.

I showed you last week this cute little sign I made.

I wanted it to be simple,clean, easy to read
and of course the colors of my shop brand

Here is how this beauty came to life.

I bought this wall hanging after Valentines day
forgot to take a before picture but it looked similar to this:

I pulled off the giant heart and sanded down the letters
I then spray painted it with a Matte white paint

Did I mention that I got it super cheap?
I only paid $0.79 for it!

originally $7.99

I used my business card as inspiration for my color scheme
I did not have to buy anything else for this project
I have an over abundance of scrapbook paper at my house!


I wrote out my word on a scarp piece of paper
then labeled each letter with what color they would be
G – green, DB- dark blue, B- blue, Y- yellow (repeat)

got out my cricut

I used a piece of purple scrap paper
to make a practice run of letter sizes

then I started cutting out my letters
repeating letters that were a little damaged in the process

the progression…

before it was even glued down I fell in love…

I used painters taped and my level to make a straight line across the bottom of the sign

I used my trusty Mod Podge to glue the letters down


I marked the center of the board with a pencil

I glued down my letter c first since it needed to be centered.

I then laid all the other letters on the board to make sure they fit correctly

before gluing I cut away some of the painters tape
so that the longer letters could be glued down all the way

once all the glue was dry I removed the blue tape

to make sure the letters were safe
I coated the entire front of the board
with a layer of Mod Podge

there you have it!
The perfect sign for my booth

I can not wait to show you the rest of the treasures i made for my table!

Do you have a sign for your shop, craft table booth?
I would love to see it and any other ideas/suggestions you may for my table?

  4. I am really glad you posted this! I am wanting to make a sign like this for my co-workers that says, “Yours, mine, ours” (long story on the meaning, but lets just say we’re working on teamwork). Anyway, I have the wood for it but didn’t know how to start for the letters. Thanks for showing me the way!
