Wanting to make my own signs for patio.
Marsha: Maybe this will help. HAVE FUN!
Hi Marsha, there are several ways. You can trace your design or words onto a mylar sheet and cut out your stencil with a sharp blade by hand. Some people use crafting machines like Cricuts. You can also have custom ones made. There are companies online that will do that for you. Here's a tutorial to do it by hand: https://projectnursery.com/2014/04/how-to-make-your-own-stencil/
Thank you for your answer!
You could find a stencil at a craft store, amazon, or etsy and then stencil a piece of wood with the saying/design that you want
My girlfriends makes her own from the flexible cutting mats found in the dollar store or any kitchen gadget shop.
