It’s time to break out all of the Halloween decorations! Woohoo! If you’ve been around here, you know that this year I’ll be decorating my kitchen with a black and purple witch theme. I needed something to go on my husband’s coffee bar, so I created a Hocus Pocus sign that is absolutely adorable. I made a free printable and a free SVG of the design for you as well!
To make your Hocus Pocus sign you need:
- 8×10 canvas
- at least 8″x10″ of vinyl
- acrylic paint- I used black, plum, and orange.
- paint brushes
- scissors or rotary cutter
- cardstock or paper to simply print the sign
Optional- if you want to create a reverse canvas:
- pliers, screw driver, or other tool to pry out staples
- paint for frame
Print or Cut SVG File
I saw the saying “Hocus Pocus I need coffee to focus” on Pinterest, and I fell in love. I knew that’s what I wanted to add to our coffee bar to go along with the other witchy items in our kitchen. So I created my Hocus Pocus sign, and I’m sharing that free printable with you! You can either print it out or download the free SVG file and cut it with your Cricut. I love having you guys visit me, and I wanted to let you know how much that means to me, so what better way to show it than to give you free stuff?!
I made two different sized PDF files that you can download, an 8×10 and a 5×7. You can print those out, pop them in a picture frame, and boom. You have a quick, easy, and adorable Halloween decoration. When you print the file, make sure that you don’t have the zoom to fit setting on if you are printing the 5×7. Printing on white cardstock looks best, but it’s not a must if you don’t have any available.
This is the SVG file that you can use to cut the design. Once you download it, you can decide to either use vinyl for the entire sign or cut a stencil and paint it on the canvas.
Decorate with Your Hocus Pocus Sign
Sunday I will adding a tutorial to show you how to create a reverse canvas. Did you know that the regular old stretched canvases that you buy have a frame underneath? I found that out a year or so ago, and I have been removing the canvas fabric from them and making beautiful decor pieces ever since. To find out how to do that, make sure you come back Sunday! Better yet, follow me on social media to see what’s going on over here on Life as a LEO Wife. To make sure that you don’t miss a post, including that one, follow me via email.

I cut a stencil and painted the design on reversed my canvas. I will be adding a tutorial on how to paint on canvas without the paint bleeding under the stencil in the next few days. Yet another reason to follow me via email! Here is my adorable (if I may say so myself) Hocus Pocus I need coffee to focus sign. I’ll update with some other pictures when I actually get all of my Halloween decorations put out.
