How to make a Wallpaper Sign
1- Cut your sheet of MDF down to 35" Long x 25" wide.
2- Seal your MDF or wood with a clear coat or paint.
3- Cut your pine down to ¾" x ¾" strips.
4- Stain your strips of pine with stain. I used Early American by Minwax and a foam brush to apply the stain.
5- Once your board is dry it is time to roll out the wallpaper.
6- I left about an inch overhang on each side of the board so I had a little wiggle room.
7- Fill your sink or water basin with water. You could even use your bathtub!
8- Completely submerge the wallpaper in the water.
9- Remove and place on your wood.
10- Smooth out the wallpaper with a squeegee or credit card. Don't press too hard or you will push all of the glue off of the wallpaper.
Once all the bubbles are out repeat steps 6-10 again for the second piece of wallpaper.
11- Make sure to take the time to line up your seams.
12- Once all the bubbles are out, use a damp cloth to remove all the glue and smooth any other bubbles. Once the wallpaper is dry, remove the excess wallpaper on the sides with a razor blade and then add your frame.
And there you have a fantastic DIY wallpaper sign. Enjoy!
Another way to make a sign is with peel and stick vinyl. See my tutorial here
