DIY Festive Vinyl Sign

Hello crafty friends!  Well, the holiday season is starting up, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I’m not ready!

I have plans to make a few DIY decorations this year, and what better way to start than with a wooden pallet sign?  These things are very trendy right now, as I’m sure you’ve seen them in the stores.  This home-made version is easy to make, and of course you can use whatever words you like on it.  I am using the awesome Tape Technologies Luster vinyl for this sign, which is gorgeous.

First, I started with a wooden pallet sign, that I found in Walmart.  It is unfinished wood, so to give a nice surface to adhere my vinyl I gave it a coating of Mod Podge Extreme Glitter.  (If you haven’t tried this product before, I certainly recommend it.  It gives a nice clear and sealed matt finish to your item, with the added bonus of glitter!)

Now for the FUN part!  I downloaded a stylish font, and created my cut file for my Silhouette Cameo using the Studio software.  I added some cute snowflakes for extra detail.  I decided to use Magenta vinyl for my sign; I know this isn’t a ‘traditional’ holiday colour, but it is such a lovely shade.  Here are the other colours available – as you can see, this product has a lovely matt metallic shine to it:

So here is my finished sign!  I think it has turned out wonderfully, and will become part of our holiday decorations for years to come.

Here’s wishing you and your families a wonderful holiday season, and a very happy New Year!
