Spring Chalkboard Sign

DIY Spring Sign

This fun letter set can be used in so many ways. I decided to create a Spring Chalkboard Sign.

Here are the supplies you need to create your own DIY Spring Sign:

  • CAMEO, Portrait, or Curio
  • Chalkboard surface (mine came unfinished from the craft store and I just added a quick coat of blue paint to the frame)
  • double sided adhesive
  • glitter pastels
  • small paint brush

 

 

Supplies

 

 

Step 1: Arrange design in software. (I added a flower accent)

Step 2: Apply double sided adhesive sheet to cutting mat and insert into machine. Cut design.

Step 3: Remove design from mat, then remove yellow backing and apply to surface. Remove white top sheet off of adhesive leaving the double sided adhesive in place. (I wanted to add glitter on in color sections, so I left some parts covered to keep colors isolated.)

Adhesive application

 

 

Step 4: Using a small soft brush, gently apply glitter to adhesive.

Step 5: After all glitter is applied, you’ll brush off the excess to reveal your new sparkly design. (hint: I vacuum over mine to remove the extra glitter just be really careful.)

Hello! I am Marie from Blooming Homestead and I have a passion for all things crafty, this includes home decorating, organization, digital design, DIY, and cooking yummy comfort food! As a recent first time home buyer, I enjoy making our house into a home while sticking to a budget (gotta love those student loans!) This usually requires me to think outside the box and get creative. I love sharing my tutorials and projects in hopes that I can inspire others. When I am not crafting, I like to read, shop, watch movies, and visit with family & friends. Most importantly, I love spending time with my husband of 12 years and our two children who keep us on our toes.

  1. What a great freebie! I love what you did with it, Marie! And love the vacuum tip.

  2. I’m new to the Silhouette, and I’m puzzled as to how to use this font. When I download it, it is just an image and not a font. I can’t type with it. What am I missing?

    1. Hi Sarah,

      Welcome to the Silhouette Family! We sell both letter sets and fonts. This is a letter set. When you open it, you can ungroup the letters and rearrange them to make words and phrases. Hope this helps!

  3. So lovely – thank you for the tutorial 🙂
