Welcome Sign For Front Porch Or Is It?

This Welcome Porch sign is perfect for the “feeling social” and the “not feeling social” days, lol! I am trying to find all kinds of excuses to use my Cricut. I love it! I had this piece of wood, so I decided to make one of those famous “Welcome” porch signs but with a funny twist. I stained the wood and cut out the letters with my Cricut and here ya go…

Here is the front. All traditional and Fallish looking. I can change the flower and peel off the pumpkin and add an ornament for Christmas or a flower for Springtime…

And here is the back…lol. This is for the next time I see a solicitor coming.. haha

Fourth of July Porch Sign Flag Stars and Stripes

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.
