DIY Let It Snow Sign

 Winter is just around the corner and with it comes the SNOW!

My family and I absolutely love the snow, and around our house, you will often hear my daughters singing or chanting “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow”.  My love of snow days, snowmen, sledding, and the hot chocolate that goes along with them, were the inspiration for  my DIY Let it Snow Sign. If you love the snow and want to celebrate it by making your own sign, here’s an easy DIY tutorial for you.

Materials That You Need:

  • Cricut Vinyl in Black
  • Cricut Explorer
  • Let It Snow Design
  • Scissors
  • White Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Saw(Or Have Home Depot cut your board to size.)
  • Board Cut 12″ x 24″
  • Sander
  • Sand Paper
  • Soft plastic squeegee
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

Step 1:  Start by cutting your board 12″ X 24″.  Sand the sides as well as the front and back.  Paint the entire board white and let it dry thoroughly.

Step 2:  Load the design into the Cricut Design Space and scale your image to 9-1/2″ in width. Attach your vinyl to a standard grip adhesive cutting mat and load it into your machine. Set your control dial to “Vinyl” and press cut. Sit back and let your machine do all of the detailed cutting work.

Step 3:  Very carefully  peel the extra vinyl away from the cut letters and snowflakes. Once it’s removed, take a piece of transfer tape, peel the backing off and stick it to the remaining vinyl. Use your plastic squeegee to help apply the transfer tape evenly. Doing this will hold your letters in place and help you to easier align the cutouts. I’ve included the image below to help you align and locate your cutouts on your board.
