So today I want to share a super quick DIY project I did this past weekend!
I bought this amazing chalkboard marquee board and I was so excited to jazz it up with a festive saying.
And then I remembered that my handwriting SUCKS and there was no way I would be able to actually write on it in chalk. Enter Adobe Illustrator and my Cricut!
I used a font I already had on my computer and saved it as an SVG and then uploaded it into Cricut Design Space to cut on my Cricut Explore.
Seriously though, using the Cricut Explore is just about the easiest thing ever now with all the smart dials and software settings.
I cut my vinyl, weeded it, and then used transfer tape to apply it to the marquee board.
And it turned out perfect!
We took all of the picture frames off our bookshelf to put up some holiday decorations so I moved some nutcrackers and a snowman around to make room for the sign. I love turning it on in the evening and it makes the room glow if we turn off the overhead lights.
And the best part is I can just take the vinyl off and replace it with a new saying! I’m excited to use this for all the holidays and birthday parties.
And even though I’m like a week late, I’m joining the Savvy Sassy Moms Holiday Blog Hop from Week 3, which was a dazzling DIY theme! Make sure to go there and see all the hosts DIY projects and everyone else who linked up!
