How to Make a Home For the Holidays Sign

Supplies

Cricut and craft supplies

Directions

Cut the wood to size, if needed. Thin craft wood can be cut with a wood knife or utility knife, or use a hand saw or automatic saw.

Paint the wood. You only need to do one side with color. The face wood was painted in red, and the back wood pieces were painted white.

Put the face piece of wood flat on a surface, with the paint side down.

Take the back pieces and glue them to the back of the face, edge to edge. You want the paint side to be down (so that it shows behind the painted side of the face piece). Find the center of the face piece, and then lay a back piece on each side. Continue outward from there.

Hit “go”.

Once completing with the cutting, weed off the excess vinyl with your weeding tool.

You’ll need to cut the vinyl into two separate pieces, with “Home for” as one full piece, and “the Holidays” as another separate piece.

Cut two pieces of transfer paper and apply to the vinyl.

Place the entire design facing downwards and begin to gently pull the transfer paper off.

Start thinking about the placement of the vinyl. Keep in mind, you have two different vinyls that both need to fit on the face board of the sign.

“Home” should begin roughly 1 ¾ inches from the left edge. “Holidays” should stop roughly 1 ¾ inches from the right edge.

Apply the vinyl and gently add pressure for it to stick to the wood. Once done, slowly remove the transfer paper.

Measure a piece of twine or jute rope for a hanger, depending on how big you want the hanger to be.

Glue each end of the rope to the back side of the completed sign (I did each end about 6 inches from the edge. Make sure you have enough of a hook to hang where you need to.
