DIY Laundry Room Sign

I love trying new Silhouette products, and for this DIY Laundry Room Sign I used the Silhouette Roll Feeder for my adhesive vinyl. The roll feeder allows me to create large format designs without a cutting mat—the design can be even bigger if you piece your cuts together, but we’ll go over that another day. The design I made was 12 inches wide and 22 inches long. Keep reading to find a great Silhouette tutorial for first-time roll feeder users and all the details regarding how I made my farmhouse-inspired DIY laundry room sign.

Wooden Nursery Sign Tutorial

Creating a nursery is no easy task, but when I set out on this adventure, I just knew that I wanted some personal, handmade pieces in there to represent the love that I have for our twin boys! We spend a lot of time at national parks and doing other outdoor activities and I thought the bathroom signs would fit into the space quite well, especially over their changing table (my husband actually liked the idea of these hanging just outside of their door to the nursery, which I thought was a great idea as well.) This project is very…
