Hey friend!! Today we’ll be making a little spring sign, but would you be surprised I told you no cutting machine required?? I found the cutest little vinyl cutouts at Target and they’ll be perfect for this DIY!! Side note, I use clearance pieces ALL THE TIME!! You can see one of my favorites here!!
I picked this sign up at Hobby Lobby for $1.74 plus tax. It’s perfect for this project and it’s a nice size for a vignette or even in a tiered tray.
Let’s begin the transformation….
The first thing to do is paint it a base coat and I’m going with black acrylic.
After the paint is dry I’ll add the vinyl cutout I picked up at Target for $3.00. I’ll be using the “Hello Spring” piece.
Remove the “Hello Spring” from the backer paper and apply to the face of the sign. You don’t have to use transfer paper but it makes this step SO MUCH EASIER!
Press the vinyl down and rub. I use a small tool from the kitchen!
Once the vinyl is pressed down well, go over the top of the sign with a second color. I’m keeping things simple and using a white chalk paint.
Cover the front and sides of the sign with the white paint and set aside to dry. I only added one coat so it would not have “complete” coverage, but you can add a second coat if you prefer.
Once the paint is completely dry go ahead and carefully peel the vinyl from the face of the sign. This part is so rewarding!!
Now we have a brand new farmhouse sign all ready for spring and no cutting machine was required!!
If there are any areas that bled you can easily use a black Sharpie to cover since the lettering is black.
All finished and ready for spring!! I love the way the black and white pops against the yellow!! What do you think?
