I just got a cricut and I am so addicted! I made this porch sign today. I used acrylic paint from Walmart, the 2oz bottles, a four foot board, some wood stain to antique it a bit, and rope.
I painted the flag, taping off areas so I could get the lines. I didn’t want it perfect but still used tape as my guideline. I made a stencil with my cricut of the stars and painted them on. After the paint dried, I rubbed the stain on in various places then used sandpaper to distress it some. I made the vinyl decal and stuck it on last. I hot glued the rope.
I did this in just a couple of hours. It was a fun project! I can post cricut instructionals if anyone is interested.
