Sunday afternoon I designated as “play” time. I wanted to try making a sign for the front door using the Cricut and a wooden canvas I picked up from the dollar store.
Here is the canvas….
I gave it a sort of “washed” paint finish using brown, white and turquoise.
While the canvas was drying I started on the lettering for the sign.
I found this SVG cut file/pattern (and literally thousands more) for free at http://www.lovesvg.com.
I downloaded the pattern and started to load and cut the wording.
Once they were all cut, I placed them on the transfer tape (which is awesome because it has a built in 1 inch grid for those of us who can’t do anything in a straight line).
I measured how big the pattern would be when placed and used those measurements to centre the words/lettering on the canvas.
I used the scraper that came with the Cricut to make sure the vinyl was fully adhered to the canvas and peeled off the transfer tape.
This is how it looked finished.
I stapled some twine to the back and tied it at the top in a bow before hanging it on our front door!
I can’t wait to try my next project!!!
