Custom Garden Sign
Simple to follow tutorial on how to create a Custom Garden Sign using your Cricut machine as a stencil.
- 14 ×36 piece of wood
- 2 colors of paint one for letters, one for the board
- paint brushes
- removable vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Eye Hooks
- S clips
Want to make this sign yourself? Just go to my project and change the “BARKER” to your own last name.
To do this, double click the BARKER and change it to your own last name.
Cutting removable vinyl with the Cricut Maker
Then click “Make It”
DO NOT turn on the mirror option when cutting.
Transferring vinyl using transfer tape
After the vinyl is cut, weed the excess off the backing paper and then transfer it to the Transfer Tape.
Painting a board for a sign
Now, paint your “letter color” across your whole board. Let it dry completely.
Move the vinyl to your board.
Now paint over the entire board (on top of the vinyl letters as well) with your board color. I ended up doing 3 total coats, letting the paint dry in between.
Barker's Garden sign to customer your garden
Once your last coat is dry, remove each of the letters, revealing the first coat of paint.
I then used some sandpaper to scuff up all around the letters and edges of the board.
To hang the sign, I used eye hooks. To attache them to the board, I pre-drilled holes into the top, 1 inch from each side. Then screwed in the eye hook until it was firmly in place.
I used S hooks to attach the sign to the fence. Just clipped one side to the fence and the other side to the eye hooks.
