Tips for making a Hocus Pocus Sign

If you want to make a Hocus Pocus wood sign, here are a few tips to help you get monstrously good results! These tips will help you ensure that you don’t make any mistakes and get perfectly spooky results.

  • Make sure your piece of wood is smooth so that you can transfer the decal cleanly. If the surface is rough, gently sanding it down and brush the dust off.
  • Use the paint suggested below to avoid needing to do several coats of paint on the wood. If you use low-quality paint, it could take several coats and not look as professional.
  • Be sure to firmly scrape your design onto the wood before removing the transfer tape. This will help the entire decal apply to the wood and remove any air bubbles. If you don’t press and scrape hard enough, you could get a partial design.
  • If you plan on having your sign outdoors, apply a coat of modge podge over the top. This will seal everything in and protect the design from the outdoor elements.
  • Display your spooktastic sign away from moisture.
  • Measure out the center of your wood before applying the decals. This will guarantee that your ghostly design is centered.
  • Buy a spare wood square just in case any mistakes are made. This way you’ll have a backup piece of wood to turn to just in case something sinister happens!
  • If you want clean lines of paint, you can use masking or painter’s tape around the wooden squares.
