  • There’s a video a few photos down that shows you step-by-step how and gives you a visual for each of these steps. If you’re anything like me… a visual is always a HUGE plus!
  • First things first, with a plate/bowl/something circular draw a circle on your plywood.

  • With your bandsaw or jigsaw cut our your circle.
  • Then, rip your two pieces of fence panel and lay them on a flat surface.
  • Place your plywood circle on top of your fence panels then glue them evenly to your circle, and then finally nail them in place.
  • To finalize your circle use your bandsaw or jigsaw to cut your fence panel pieces to fit your plywood circle

  • Next, paint your circular fall sign in white. I like to use a satin interior whenever I use vinyl. Semi-gloss and gloss just never seems to look right, and flat looks too dingy to me.

  • Now, it’s on to the fun part. Adding your fall sign quote!
  • The key to using any stencil is all about the application. It’s extremely important that you do not apply too much paint, or it will go underneath your stencil creating a less than perfect design. Remember, always use several, light layers.
  • Using your Silhouette CAMEO cut out the project templates from above with the vinyl on your mat.
  • Remove the vinyl from your mat, and apply your transfer tape.
  • Then, remove the backing from your vinyl, and carefully take out the vinyl pieces of your design that you will be painting.
  • Once you have removed all of your vinyl pieces it is now time to apply to your prepped sign board. Line up your vinyl with your board so it will be applied evenly, and using your squeegee firmly push it down.
  • Next, slowly remove your transfer tape so that only your vinyl is left on your board.
  • In a ventilated area, evenly apply a light coat of spray paint (or lacquer paint and your airbrush) to your vinyl. Allow it to dry and then apply your next layer. Repeat this step until your desired color has been achieved.
  • Once your paint has completely dried remove your vinyl. TIP: If you’re having a hard time pulling up small pieces of the vinyl Silhouette does offer a handy tool kit for removing vinyl.
  • Last, sand down the edges with your sander to give a beautiful distressed look!
