I love swinging into Target and checking out their Dollar Spot. Things are getting a little out of control with their “dollar” concept but sometimes they have awesome things for less than you'd expect to pay. That's where I found this wooden leaf that was blank so I can use my Cricut machine to personalize it. Create this custom Fall wood sign today.
Supplies for your Custom Fall Wood Sign
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore
- Cricut EasyPress
- Gold Iron-On Vinyl
- Fall Wood Leaf Cutout
- Weeding Tool
- Cricut Design Space File
Easy peasy. Just cut your image using your Cricut machine and then weed the vinyl so that your image is on the carrier sheet. Warm up your EasyPress to 315ºF and preheat your wooden leaf for 5 seconds. Lay your image onto your wooden leaf cutout and press for an additional 40 seconds. Remove the carrier sheet and then add some ribbon or accents to the rope. I just have this sitting on a shelf but if you wanted to have it as a door hanger, just switch it upside down.
Can I use Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl or Iron-On Vinyl on wood?
No. There are some things that Cricut doesn't recommend but you can usually do it but using foil iron-on vinyl on wood just won't stay. The adhesive on the back of the foil HTV just doesn't attach as well as the Everyday Iron-On does. It will lift where it doesn't attach and stretch and tear. I included a picture for reference. It's so easy to make this custom fall wood sign using your Cricut and the Cricut EasyPress. The small EasyPress 2 is really handy and I have found that I use that one 95% of the time. I do a lot of sewing and so using the small EasyPress 2 on seams is a time saver. Check out other Fall crafts that your Cricut can make below.
