Apply a coat of paint to the face and edges of the sign blank and allow to dry. Sand any rough edges.
Use your scrapbook paper to emboss the outline of the sign face onto the piece of scrapbook paper you intend to use as your background. Using a lead pencil, lightly rub the paper to define the edge lines where you should make your cuts.
Cut out the background image and apply to stall sign using ModPodge and foam brush. Allow to dry.
Determine font and style for your horses name for the front of the image. If using a scrapbook paper, trace and then cut out horse’s name. In my example, I used a silhouette cutter to print the horse’s name.
Because my background did not stand out well, I used my silhouette to cut out an additional strip to accent the horses name.
Adhere all pieces to the sign blank with Outdoor modpodge.
Apply at least 3 coats of Modpodge before hanging on horses stall!
Enjoy your new customized stall sign!
