Joy Christmas Sign Made with Cricut
I jumped into the Christmas spirit pretty early this year. The idea for these cute Christmas signs came from another project my husband was working on at the time. I had an epiphany to use the circle cut out for the letter "O".
Piece of wood (16x7-But you can decide on the right size)
Paint-White and Red
Vinyl (either removable or permanent)
Standard Grip Mat
small screwable hook
I asked him to make me a wood plank with a circle cut out of the middle. I didn’t give him much to go off so I love what he did! He used a size 4 inch circle drill for the middle. I then sanded it all down and painted it white.
I cut out the letters on my Cricut onto vinyl. Either removable or permanent would work, I like to work with permanent more, so that is what I used.
I placed them onto my painted piece of wood. I use painters tape to put around the edges to give myself a little more room to paint.
I first start with mod podge. I paint that on being sure to go all directions and really get those edges of the letters good. This really helps later get clean and crisp lines from your stencil. Allow that to dry.
Then I painted over the mod podge with my red paint. I let it sit for just a little bit but not too long for the paint to cure. Once the paint has time to set then it is more difficult to take the stencil off with crisp lines.
I screwed the hook to the top of the whole and hung the ornament.
I may add some garland to the top of it when I display it for Christmas in my house. But I'm LOVING how it turned out!
I loved it so much that I made a HO HO HO sign too!
What other things could you make with the idea of a cut out letter "O"
