Easy Broom Parking Sign for Halloween

Hello! It’s Aki again from Minted Strawberry. It’s so fun to make decor for this time of the year. Today I’ll be showing you an easy way to make a small broom parking sign – perfect for your front door if you’re a renter, as a door hanger, or even a wreath adornment.

If you love DIY Halloween decorations, you’re going to love this fun sign. I’ll also be sharing with you the file I created for this project, so let’s begin this Halloween craft!

Broom Parking Halloween Sign

Supplies:

  • 8″ Wood Circle
  • Printable – download the printable here!
  • Cardstock for printing or die-cutting
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • Sponge brush or Spouncer
  • Hot glue gun
  • Drill
  • Sandpaper
  • Twine
  • Scissors

Step 1. Sand the surface and the edges of your wooden circle lightly, to make sure there aren’t any unfinished areas or splintered wood.

Step 2. Print the Halloween sign printable, and cut around the circle with a pair of scissors. It’s preferable that you print on laserjet for no bleeding.

If you don’t have access to a laserjet printer, then spray both sides of the printout with clear acrylic sealer before Mod Podging so you don’t get any bleeding of the ink.

Step 3. Put a generous amount of Mod Podge on the surface of the wooden circle. (Side note: I love using this silicone mat from Mod Podge – keeps my work surfaces mess free all the time and it’s so easy to clean!)

Step 4. Adhere the print, using a brayer to smooth the print over the entire surface of the circle.

Step 5. Alternatively, you can use a die-cutter to cut out the words – just trace the image and adjust to the desired size. I like a little thickness on the words so I used my die-cutter to cut my words on cardstock.

If using this process, paint the wooden circle first and wait for it to fully dry, then lay a generous amount of Mod Podge down and adhere your letters.

To transfer the letters exactly as how they were placed, I used painter’s tape that I “de-stickied” before using it as a transfer paper of sorts to transfer my letters.

Step 6. Apply a good bit of Mod Podge to seal your image, whether it’s the print or the cut-out paper. Wait for the Mod Podge to fully dry before proceeding.

Step 7. Hot glue embellishments to the edge – I used twine to tie it up with the hanger I’ll be using. Adhere it with hot glue.

Step 8. Mark and drill two holes on the top part of the circle. Thread and knot your twine to make a hanger and finish off the project.
