DIY Fourth of July Sign - Wood and Vinyl

DIY Wood and Vinyl Patriotic Sign

My son Mason turns six on July 1st and this year we decided to have a July 4th themed birthday party. I already love decorating for the patriotic holidays throughout summer but this year I am stepping up the Red White and Blue crafting to use as party decorations too. I want there to be a little bit of Red, White or Blue all around the house.
 
Fourth of July Sign - DIY with Vinyl and Wood

This sign was inspired by the Fourth of July printable I shared earlier this week over at See Vanessa Craft. I changed a few things to the text layout and used my silhouette cameo to cut out the design onto white vinyl.

Supplies Needed:

-scrap piece of wood
-acrylic paint
-paint brush or foam brush
-vinyl
-vinyl cutting machine (I used my Silhouette Cameo)
-vinyl Transfer paper
-fine grit sand paper

Directions:

-Paint a piece of wood with your desired paint color and allow to dry.
-Lightly sand the board to remove any paint strokes or imperfections so that the vinyl will adhere nicely.
-Cut your design onto vinyl with a vinyl cutting machine and then apply it to vinyl transfer paper.
-Using transfer paper apply the vinyl design onto the board.

The possibilities with vinyl and wood signs are literally endless. My pine board is from a scrap piece of wood leftover from my mantel redo. I had my dad cut the leftover piece into a bunch of smaller pieces so I could make signs from them.
