Happy 2019! It's been a while since I posted due to the Christmas gift making craze, but not that the holidays are over, I now have time to share my projects again! So, Hubby got me a Cricut Maker for my birthday a few months ago and I definitely put that little machine to work over the last month and a half! It is SO fun creating with my Cricut and I find the process of weeding vinyl strangely calming (does that make me weird??) Probably, but that’s ok, I’ll accept it. So today, I’m sharing with you one of my first projects that I made using my little magic machine, a DIY Winter Sign! I wanted some wall décor that I wouldn’t have to take down once Christmas has passed. I always find the time between Xmas and Spring a strange time for decorating. It looks weird to keep Christmas Décor up until Spring, but it also feels odd to decorate your house for Spring when its still REALLY cold outside! So, this was one of my ways of keeping some winter décor up without that Xmas feeling sticking around!
DIY Winter Wall Sign - Winter Decor With the Help of a Cricut
For this project you'll need a vinyl cutting machine, such as a Cricut or a Silhouette.
The free SVG cut file is available on the detailed post for this project, which is located on my website. You can find the link to the detailed post at the bottom of this page.
First, cut a 1x12 board to length and stain with wood stain.
Upload the svg file into Design Space or into the design software used with your cutting machine. Or you can create your own lettering and snowflakes in your software program.
Cut the "WINTER" lettering first on holographic vinyl.
Use transfer tape to transfer the vinyl letters to the wood board.
Once all the letters are attached, cut the snowflakes on glitter vinyl and transfer to the board.
Add some screw hooks to the top of the board, followed by some ribbon or string and hang on the wall.
Now I have some rustic, yet colorful décor that I can leave up all winter long and not have it look weird!
