Now that we have everything ready, let’s get started!
Step 1: Prepare Your Craft Workspace
Set up a clean and well-ventilated workspace, preferably outdoors, to avoid any mess inside your home. Lay down some newspapers or a Dollar Tree party tablecloth to protect your work surface.
Step 2: Prepare Your Dollar Tree Craft Sign
Option 1 – Adhere the black contact paper to the Dollar Tree sign and cut away any excess.
Option 2 – Begin by lightly sanding the welcome sign to smooth out any rough edges or imperfections. This step ensures that your paint adheres evenly to the surface. After sanding, wipe away any dust with a clean cloth.
Now, choose your desired paint color and start applying it to the sign. You can be as creative as you like with the color scheme. Allow the paint to dry completely before proceeding.
Step 3: Create the Buffalo Plaid Stencil
Adhere the buffalo plaid stencil to the Dollar Tree sign. Rub your hands over it to secure it in place and to remove air bubbles. Take a squeegee and add a small amount of chalk paste pink all over the design. Remove any excess and put it back in the jar. Carefully, remove the Chalk Couture buffalo plaid transfer / stencil before the chalk paste dries.
Let the chalk paste dry!
Step 4: Create the letter M and Welcome Stencil
Cut out a piece of drop cloth a little smaller than the Dollar Tree sign. Adhere the letter ‘M’ stencil to the drop cloth. Rub your hands over it to secure it in place and remove air bubbles. Take a squeegee and add a small amount of chalk paste teal all over the design. Remove any excess and put it back in the jar. Carefully, remove the Chalk Couture letter M transfer / stencil before the chalk paste dries.
Let the chalk paste dry!
Tip: To make the drop cloth look more rustic tear the size you want and remove the threads from the side. To do this measure out the size you want. Cut a small slit into fabric and take your hands and tear the rest of the way.

Note: I am using chalk paste on fabric because I will not wash this fabric. If you want to wash a fabric you will need to use the Chalk Couture ink for it to be permanent on the project.

Step 5: Add Flower Accents
Now it’s time to add some charming flower accents to your welcome sign. This is how to attach flowers to welcome sign. Using your hot glue gun, attach three sides of the drop cloth to the dollar tree sign and put the artificial flowers into the sign ‘pocket’.
You can choose flowers that match your home’s decor or go for a seasonal look with vibrant blooms.
Step 6: Final Touches and Placement
Inspect your DIY Dollar Tree welcome sign for any touch-ups or additional decorations. You can add small embellishments like a bow if you would like.
Finally, hang your masterpiece on your front door to warmly welcome all your guests.
