Halloween Sign Directions

Step 1

I designed a collage of images for my Halloween sign in the Cricut Design Space. Then, cut it out of vinyl with my Cricut.

Step 2

While it was cutting, I painted my sign black.

Step 3

When the vinyl was finished cutting, I pulled off the excess pieces and put the transfer tape on the image.

Step 4

I placed it on my wood piece and burnished it down.

Step 5

I slowly pulled the transfer tape off of the vinyl and burnished the vinyl down again to make sure the edges were down.

Step 6

I painted over the design with black paint. I made sure to paint in every direction. This step is to make sure if any paint should seep under the vinyl that it is the base color. This will guarantee nice crisp edges.

Step 7

Once the black dried, I painted over the piece with orange paint.
