I’m always on the lookout for cute art for our home, but have such a hard time buying it when I know I can make it! When Joann asked to partner about their National Craft Month, I was all in. Besides my family, there’s nothing I love more than crafts and especially crafts made using my Cricut!
If you haven’t been to Joann in a while, you might not have seen the huge selection of Cricut machines, tools and materials they carry. This week of National Craft Month, Joann is featuring their Cricut brand with fun offers and deals.

To create this wood home décor sign, you’ll need:
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut Easypress
- Cricut Basic Tool Set
- Cricut Everyday iron on
- Unfinished Wood Pallet
- Acrylic Paint
Did you know you can use iron on vinyl on more than just fabric t-shirts? I’ve previously used it on these paper mache ornaments and a reverse canvas as the iron on material can adhere to these surfaces. I thought it would be the perfect material to use on this wood pallet piece, especially since I painted it with a layer of white acrylic paint first.
I designed this monogram featuring our last name and the year we were married and uploaded it as an SVG to design space. It’s the year our family was established! You can create any phrase, word or image in design space, or use ones already included in their library. Before you send it to cut, make sure to hit that “mirror” button since we’re using iron on vinyl!
Cut on your Cricut machine and weed the vinyl.
Adhere the vinyl to your wood pallet using your Easypress. Tip: I usually place a piece of parchment paper over my surface before I press with the Easypress machine.
Once setting and peeling the carrier sheet, your wood home décor sign is ready to display in your home!
Prop it up near a vase of flowers this spring or hang it on the wall to commemorate your established family.
