Good morning! I am so excited to announce that I have join the Creative Crafts Team as an official member. Over the next four months we have joined together to bring you fun themed blog hops along with giveaways & more! Be sure to follow along. 🙂 This month we all decided to share a fall craft. Which I was totally on board with! ha! September brings the start of the holiday crafting season, and I am here for it! I hope you are, too! I decided to share this simple & easy DIY Fall Sign tutorial with you today. One of this things I love about owning a Cricut machine is the ability to whip out new home décor in just a few minutes. It’s always easy to change it out as well. So when each holiday rolls around you can easily refresh what you have and add something new which is always fun. I have links to everyone else’s fall projects below & a giveaway for a Cricut Joy. So be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for some of the best fall crafts around & be sure to enter the giveaway! Let’s get started! 🙂
For this project you will need:
Cricut Maker 3 (or other Cricut machine like the Explore Air 2 or 3 or the original Cricut Maker)
Cricut StandardGrip Cutting Mat
Cricut tool (for weeding)
Cricut transfer tape
Minwax Wood Finishing Cloths
Americana acrylic paint (Cool Neutral)
foam paint brush
8×10 inch wooden board
this Design Space file
First, let me show you how I “weathered” my wood board. You can see what a difference it makes in the picture below! I love the look!
You will paint your board first and then let dry. I only did one coat of paint. After it dried really well, I sanded down the edges to rough it up a bit. Then using the wood finishing cloths, I wiped on a layer of stain. Use an old rag to wipe off the excess stain, and then let it dry.
Then finished product is a nice, smooth weathered looking board! 🙂
While that dried really well, I cut out my vinyl using my Cricut Maker 3.
You can see more about this new machine here. I love it so much! 🙂
I removed the excess vinyl leaving my words behind. This is called weeding.
Then I used a weeding pick to remove all the little pieces of vinyl throughout my quote.
Next, I put a piece of transfer tape on top of my design.
Then I flipped it over and slowly removed my backing paper leaving my design on the transfer tape.
I put my design exactly were I wanted it on my board. Smooth it down & then slowly lifted my transfer tape off.
Isn’t vinyl lettering so satisfying!? I love how you get perfect results every single time! 🙂
I love how it turned out! Looks so cute with all my other fall décor! Yes, I busted out the fall stuff September 1st!
