"D" is for Danger Keep Out Sign

Paint: diy danger sign

A last minute birthday gift for a little boy, I handpainted this keep out sign with a skull and crossbones.

Fast and easy, 1/2" plywood cut into an arrow shape.

Paint black acrylic around skull and letters.

Stapled jute rope to back for hanging.

Hopefully the birthday boy can hang this sign on his bedroom door.

How to paint a danger keep out sign:

Step 1: Cut 1/2" plywood.  Print out letters, I used Coolock Black font in 250 point and google skull images.

Step 2: Place print out on top of wood and trace letters with ballpoint pen.

Step 3: The pen should leave an indent in the wood.  Place black around the indent.

Step 4: Paint white inside the letters and skull.

Step 5: Seal with clear satin poly spray.  Staple jute rope to back in two places to make hanger.
