Truck and camper wood sign tutorial supplies:
- 6×14 Darice Unfinished Pallet Sign
- Darice Unfinished Wood Truck
- Darice Unfinished Wood Camper
- Chalk Paint
- Power Tac Adhesive
- Vinyl (in any color)
- Transfer Tape
- Cricut, Silhouette, or another vinyl cutter
- Adventure Awaits File
Paint all of your wood pieces. You can choose whatever colors you would like here. I painted the truck red and the sign a blue-green. I mixed some white with the blue-green for a lighter shade on my camper. We will be going over the sign with some white but some of the original color will show through.
You can cut your stencil while your pieces dry. Download the adventure awaits file and upload it to the software for your cutting machine. Weed away all excess vinyl including the centers of letters. You will be left with something that looks like the image below. Remember that this will be used a stencil so it does not matter what color you use for this portion of the project.
Use transfer tape to add the vinyl to the top of the sign. You might want to lay all of your pieces out to get the proper location before adding. Press the vinyl down well then peel back the transfer tape.
Do not attach your truck and camper to the sign yet. We are going to do a top coat over the entire thing now that the vinyl is in place.
Use white craft paint and a dry brush to go over the top of the entire thing. This method gives a rustic look with a portion of the original color showing through the finish.
Go over the entire sign including the entire top as well as the sides. Allow to dry competely.
Then peel back the vinyl to reveal the painted words on your truck and camper sign.
Use any glue that is okay for wood to adhere both your truck and camper to the sign. Allow to dry completely.
Once everything is dry, your truck and camper sign is ready for display anywhere around your home or even in an RV or camper.
