Hocus Pocus Sign & Free Printable or SVG

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!

If you’re looking for more Hocus Pocus printables, you’ll love this set of printables that will help you throw the greatest Halloween movie night or themed party ever! My kids love our annual Halloween and Christmas movie nights that I go all out for. Themed food and drinks, photobooths, games and activities, decor, and more! The Hocus Pocus printables set has about 14 designs in it, decor, photobooth props, food and drink tent cards, invitations, “movie tickets,” and more!

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
  • stapler
  • 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

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, check out his reverse canvas tutorial!

I cut a stencil and painted the design on reversed my canvas. Here is my adorable (if I may say so myself) “Hocus Pocus I need coffee to focus” sign.

    No problems…I understand what you are saying and yes, it seems like we are very much alike but I am probably old enough to be your Mom!! LOL!!! We do need to have a “healthy” fear during the Pandemic to keep ourselves and those we love safe..Thanks for your prayers and i also send prayers for you and your family’s safety during these times!!
    Love these sweet signs and I have to check out some of your other creations when I have a bit more time, I just put a big pot of chicken bone broth soup on…I will be linking up to your Traffic Jam party too! Thanks for the invitation, my friend!!

  2. Niki, I’ve never seen that saying before, and its soooo me! Your sign is so cute and how generous you are to share it in different sizes too! One day I have to learn how to do that! Many folks have asked for things like my theme party signs, games and invites. Gotta put it on my to do list!
