The Witch Is In Sign

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

October is here, fall is in the air, the witches and goblins will soon be out.  Each year the youngest Gypsy patiently waits for October to arrive so she can begin decorating.  She needed something new for the door so we designed a sign that we could share with all of you.  It is a very easy DIY project that looks very nice hanging on our entry door.

We wanted to make it simple so we made our sign 11 x 8 1/2 inches but with a little trimming you could just as easily make it an 8 x 10.

Supplies Needed

Supplies Needed:

  • Prints
  • 11 x 8.5 plywood
  • 3 x2 plywood
  • Paper Trimmer or scissors
  • Paint brushes
  • Brayer or putty knife
  • Sandpaper
  • Wire
  • Wire cutter
  • Paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Small tack

Step 1:

Download the free images and print.  There are three images included, the main image with the witch with the wording, The Witch Is.  The next image is one with both the in and out.  We also included an image that has The Witch Is In if you would rather frame it.

Step 2:

Cut two pieces of plywood, we used wood that was 1/4 inch thick so it wouldn’t be heavy hanging on the door. You will need one cut to 11 x 8.5 inches and another one cut to 3 x 2 inches.  Also you need to drill small holes at the top corners of both pieces of plywood for the wire.  We drilled our holes after we we had adhered the prints to the plywood.  If we were doing it again we would drill the holes first

Step 3:

Paint the plywood the color of choice.  We used cheap craft paint and a sponge brush.

Step 4:

If needed trim print to fit plywood. The in and out print will have to be trimmed to fit the 3 x 2 plywood.  When Paint is completely dry Mod Podge prints to the plywood.  Use brayer or putty knife to remove all air bubbles.  Mod Podge the In print to one side of the 3 x 2 and the out print to the other side. We laid a piece of clean printer paper over our sign when we used the brayer.  We added a top coat of Mod Podge.  Let completely dry.

Step 5:

Insert the wire into the holes for the hanger on both pieces.  Place a small tack on the witch sign for the in and out sign.  We placed our tack under the loop of the h.  You will be able to flip it to say The Witch Is In or The Witch Is Out.
