MY PuMPkin PaTCH LaWN STaKe

I'll come clean and admit that I'm a Craftaholic this week!!

Here's how I made this sign...

I cut four pieces of wood and sanded the rough edges
* the post is 42 inches
* the sign on top is 16.5 inches
* the two direction signs are both 15 inches


I painted all the pieces using Ceramcoat Acrylic paint from Michaels. Since this is going to be beside my door and out of the rain I didn't bother using outdoor paint.


Once completely dry I roughed up the edges....have I told you lately how much I love the worn look


I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts Alot Software to make my lettering


FONTS I USED FOUND IN MICROSOFT OFFICE!!!

Pumpkin Patch = Grilled Cheese
Hay Ride = Smarty Pants
Corn Maze = Hank

 For this project I used the outdoor glossy vinyl because it holds up better and is intended for outdoor use.



I affixed each sign onto the post using Wood Glue

For a special touch I tied a piece of Raffia to the top and placed it next to my front door for all to see.



Happy FALL Everyone!!

  3. I love your blog and this is a really cute craft! I have a question for you? When cutting vinyl with the cricut, how do you get it all on one sheet? When ever I have done it, each letter comes off individually and it has a sticky back that I peel off. Am I missing something?
    Thanks!

  10. I love it! The weathered wood is a great touch and thank you for sharing your font choices. I am addicted to fonts and love finding great projects online, it's so helpful to know eactly which ones people used for their projects. I need to get that software, might have to finally download it tonight. Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree! I hope you'll come back next week and link up again!
