Word Search Farmhouse Bathroom Sign Tutorial

4 Materials
1 Hour

I found this free cut file at Craft House and knew I had to make a sign out of it for our hall bath. This cute bathroom word search sign is so cute and it will give my guests something to do when they are in the bathroom.

And who doesn't love a fun word search game every now and then?

Step 1.  Cut the rounded ends off of large craft sticks.

Step 2. Glue craft sticks to the back of the frame in a staggered design.

Step 3. Paint the craft sticks using chalk or acrylic paint. I used chalk paint.

Step 4. Apply vinyl to the back board.

Step 5. I have a trick when I am working with wood and vinyl. I use my iron and a thin piece of fabric. This helps the vinyl melt into the cracks and crevices of the wood giving it more of a painted look. It also helps the vinyl adhere better onto the wood.

Step 6. Attach a dry erase marker and bow.

      Sorry, I just saw the questions on this post. I use Oracle 651 vinyl and I usually get it from Amazon or directly from Oracle. When you use the iron, be sure you are using some type of fabric on top and you are not letting the vinyl get too hot.

      I have done this not paying attention and actually melted the vinyl and it stuck to the fabric.
