Preparing the Felt Flowers

  • Head over to our Etsy shop to purchase the felt flower patterns for cutting and assembling these Spring inspired florals.

Preparing the Wood Sign

  • Apply a coat of relic paint over the wood sign and let it dry.
  • Once dry, take a piece of sandpaper and lightly sand off some of the paint from the surface and edges giving it a distressed look.

Preparing the Home Sweet Home Image

  • Open Cricut Design Space. Click on the “+” sign to start a new project, opening up a blank canvas.
  • Click on the “Upload” button from the toolbar and browse your downloaded files to insert the SVG file.
  • With the image selected, click on the “Weld” button to secure all parts of the image together for cutting.
  • Select “Make It” in the upper right corner to proceed with cutting.
  • To assemble the sign, cut around the image with a pair of scissors.
  • Using the weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl around the cut images and discard.

Assembling the Sign

  • Cut a piece of transfer tape a bit larger than the size of the image. Peel away the transfer tape backing and place the transfer tape overtop of the cut image.
  • Peel away the vinyl backing, leaving just the image adhered to the transfer tape.
  • Position the image with the transfer tape on to the sign and press in place. Remove the transfer tape leaving the vinyl image on the sign.
  • Using a hot glue gun, attach the felt flowers around the lettering.
