Hi Friends!! Happy Fall!! I am starting to decorate a bit for fall and wanted to share this DIY pumpkin wood sign with free SVG file with you! I having been trying to figure out Inkscape and finally was able to make this cute “Happy Pumpkin Spice Season” file. I wanted to share with you all for free along with this tutorial if you want to make a cute pumpkin wood sign with it. This is how it turned out!
Materials for DIY Pumpkin Wood Sign:
- Wood – I used some scrap plywood I had
- Chalk Paint
- Vinyl – I use Oracal 631 for stencil
- Cricut Explore Air™ or other cutting machine
- SVG File – Click here to download FREE file!!
First thing you want to do is download the file and upload it to Cricut Design Space. Attach the file together and it will all turn the same color. Decide what size pumpkin you want (will depend on what size wood you have). Mine is about 12 inches. I added the file in front to see how big I wanted to make it. I cut out the pumpkin on scrap cardstock and the saying on vinyl. Then you’ll weed out the letters.
Once that’s dry, paint the pumpkin with what you want the color to be. I wanted an off white pumpkin so I used this chalk paint.
Once the paint is dry you will add the vinyl stencil. Apply transfer tape to the whole piece of vinyl. Peel off the backing and center it on the pumpkin. Scrape it down with a scraper. Peel off the transfer tape. The vinyl should stay on wood.
I apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the letters to help prevent bleeds. (Again, an extra step! But I think it helps!)
Sand the edges if desired to get a worn look. You could also apply a top coat of poly or clear varnish. Then sit back and admire your work!! Not bad, for a super cheap project, right? Display wherever you want and enjoy!!
I’d love to see pictures if you make one!!
