How to Stencil a Pallet Sign and Free Cut File

Pallet signs sure have been popular on Weekend Craft the past few months. So I thought today I would show you how I stencil pallet signs. This was also great timing because it’s Silhouette Challenge time and this month’s theme was home decor with the added bonus of using wood. Needless to say, this month’s challenge was right up my alley. Now I get requests all the time from family and friends to make them a project that they have seen on the site and this was one of those occasions. You may have seen this sign before here when I was getting ready to head to Brimfield.

Now I always get asked how I make the signs since the lines are so crisp and I can customize the sign to whom I am making it for. I use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out a vinyl stencil that I either design with Silhouette Studio or using Adobe Illustrator and Silhouette Connect. Now you may see some signs use vinyl as the actual lettering but I like to use it as a stencil because paint is more of a permanent medium.

What you’ll need
• Pallet wood
• Vinyl
• Silhouette Cameo (or other cutting machines)
• Latex paint (paint samples from the hardware store work great)
