Personalized Name Signs with the Cricut

YouTube Preview Image

In this video I show you just how quick and simple it is to make a customized sign or personalized gift.  We use the Cricut to cut out Vinyl and simply paint a pre-cut wooden plaque from the craft store to make this Door Sign for my daughters room. These are even fun crafts to do with your Kids to have them make something for their room, on their door, or over their beds. You could even paint them ahead of time, have the kids decorate with the vinyl and then you seal it later.  Talk about a Memory Preserver! 😉 😉 – Ohhh…I see a scrapbook layout in the making!  Take pics of your kids making them and then you can have two projects in one! 😉 😉 lol


This one is really simple and shows you how ANYONE can do this craft in a few quick steps – the longest part is “waiting” for the paint to dry.

In a week or two – I want to show you some great home decor signs that are going to take a little more time and energy, so make sure you keep checking back with

  2. Ian has been wanting to paint, he is my seven year old and I think this would be a perfect mommy and me project. I made two more of those brag books and posted them on my blog so come by and take a look.

  4. so simple but very effective, can’t believe the wood was so cheap, here in the uk you would pay £2.00 i’m sure for it!:)

  5. That is truly cute.

  6. I have bought that same piece of wood about 2 months ago and now you have given me the inspiration to use it…thanks

    Question…if you use cardstock instead of the vinyl can you still use the glossy minwax?

  7. Looks like something I might be able to do…lol! Thanks for the video!

  8. Thanks for sharing this. I have a lot of SU wood blocks that I am planning on making Chtistmas ornaments with. Now you gave the technique to get it done. I may use cardstock instead of vinyl, but basically the same.

  9. Great idea for gift giving!
