Create a Halloween sign using your Cricut cutting machine!  It's an easy DIY!

Here is a quick video, so you can see exactly how I made it:

You will need:
Wood for sign:
Black acrylic paint:
Orange acrylic paint:
Cricut (Amazon):  
Cricut (Cricut site):
Cricut vinyls:


1.  I designed a collage of Halloween images and sized it to the wood piece I had.

2.  I cut the design out of vinyl.

3.  While it was cutting, I painted my sign black.

4.  When the vinyl was finished cutting, I pulled off the excess.

5.  I put transfer tape onto vinyl design. 

6.  I burnished the transfer tape onto the design.

7.  I pulled the transfer tape off of the backing.

8.  I carefully placed the design, with the transfer tape, onto the sign.

9.  I burnished it down.

10.  I slowly pulled up the transfer tape.  If a piece of vinyl starts pulling up, go back and rub it down and pull up again.

11.  I burnished the design down again, making sure the edges are down.

12.  I painted over the design with the black.  I made sure to paint in every direction.  This step is to make sure if any paint should seep under the vinyl that it is the base color.  This will guarantee nice crisp edges.

13.  Once the black dried, I painted over it all with orange.

14.  When the orange dried, I carefully pulled up the vinyl.

15.  I did some sanding to give the sign a distressed, worn look.  

That's it!  Now yo have a fun sign and it can be customized with colors and design to fit any decor!

That's it!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
