Some paint, some salvaged wood, and some imagination and anyone can make a vintage sign. I use acrylic paints, odds and ends (signs, baseballs, baseball bats, decoupaged pictures and have a wonderful time being creative.

Christmas signs are done in a similar way, but I use battery operated LED lights with built in timers.

<p>Thank you for your comment.</p><p>I started doing these this past summer. For all of the components, I always look for clearance items/bargains. </p><p>1.First, I utilize mostly salvaged wood from a local and wonderful salvage store (Eco Relics - a cross between Salvage Dogs and American Pickers). Any signs for outdoors, I use pressure treated wood and finish them with several coats of a heavy duty outdoor polyurethane.</p><p>2.I use a dremmel Max saw to cut wood to size. </p><p>3. For nice lettering, I order from CraftCuts, otherwise I use letters/numbers obtained via Michaels or Hobby Lobby</p><p>4. Pictures/signs I use TinWorld or look for bargains fro RetroPlanet. </p><p>5. Other pictures I &quot;google&quot; the subject and download the pictures I need. I then print them out on photo paper.cut them to desired size, mount on cardboard (to size), and decoupage them.</p><p>6. Christmas signs utilize LED lights that are battery operated and have timers as part of them</p><p>I feel that I am getting pretty good at these and can do virtually any subject. The ones you see are a small sample that include religious subjects, garden signs, college teams, inspirational sayings, etc. I have a &quot;catalogue&quot; (a PDF file) available as well as the signs being on my FaceBook (Jonathan Schneider - Fleming Island, albums. I hope this assists you.</p>
<p>Great displays. Could you share a little more about how you made them?</p>
