Halloween Wood Sign with Cricut

Hi there, it’s me Ellen today here on the blog and I’m excited!! In this post I will show you a totally different project than I normally do.

We will be making a Halloween wood sign using the “Lil Boo Ghosts SVG Cut Files” from Printable Cuttable Creatables.

1.  If you want to cut wood you need a Cricut Maker and the knife blade. I’m also using 1 /16” Basswood from Cricut.

2. It’s very important the wooden piece stays where it is. So I recommend using a strong grip mat and taping the wood with a strong painters tape onto the mat.

If you cut wood with a Cricut machine you need to be patient, it takes a long time to cut through the wood. Most of the time I even let the machine cut twice instead of once (if you do that, do not unload your mat!). It’s also very important that your computer doesn’t go on sleep mode while cutting. Otherwise you will lose your wood piece and have to start all over again.

3. After you cut through the wood, it’s nice to sand all cut elements neatly.

To let the text in the speech bubbles stand out, I used “veneer”.  The only thing that is different when cutting veneer, is the blade. I changed the blade to the “Deep Point Blade”.

Next I inked a wooden slice with dark brown ink, so it looked burned. As a final step I glued everything in place.
