Prepare Your Dollar Tree Sign Surface:
Ensure that your chosen surface, whether it’s a Dollar Tree sign, chalkboard, wood, glass, or any other material, is clean and free from dust and debris. This will help the transfers adhere properly. I used a spritz of water and Chalk Couture scraper to remove the glitter from the Dollar Tree sign and paint it. You can use chalk paint, Sherwin Williams paint, acrylic paint, and even watered-down Chalk Couture chalk paste.
