This sign is perfect for the “Non-crafters” out there. Those of you who say you are not creative- although that is not true- creativity is in all of us- the more you use it the more you get. So you just need practice and easy projects like this to start with.
I have been watching these signs popping up in homes on my Instagram feed lately and love how simple they are.
I decided to give one a try.
Here is the link to the pattern I created so you can make one for yourself and here is the link to the LIVE how to video.
You will need a roll of brown or white paper. Black sharpies in various sizes- I went with one thick and one thin, carbon paper, pencil, paper clips, and if you choose twine and a dowel.
First print the pattern. Next get your scroll ready by rolling it open and rolling some extra on the bottom. I put a paperclip on the ends of each side to keep the paper from rolling closed. Use books to help keep it open as well.
Next use your carbon paper and pattern to trace the letters onto the paper.
Then comes the magic. Use the sharpie markers to fill in your letters.
It is that easy!
You can choose to string twine through the top tube to hang the sign or tie the twine to a dowel that goes through the top roll. Either way looks great.
I chose to decorate my sign with evergreen garland to add that holiday touch- but you don’t need to.
My plan after the holidays, is to roll the holiday sign up, exposing more plain brown paper, and create a sign for New Years Eve, and the Valentine’s Day, and then spring…. you get the idea. This is the perfect seasonal sign you can have hanging all year by just rolling the next season in.
We would love to see your paper scroll signs. Drop us a picture on our Facebook page- we can inspire each other.
