DIY Mother's Day vinyl signs are a unique and practical gift that you can create with a DIY machine.

Show your love and appreciation this Mother's Day by creating a personalized vinyl sign that celebrates your mom's uniqueness.
What do you need?
Wood Sign Blank
Vinyl (I used black and white)
Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
What do you have to do?
Start by measuring the dimensions of your sign blank to determine how big to make your design. I usually make the design between 1/2″-1″ smaller than my sign. After everything is sized correctly, cut out the vinyl with your cutting machine and weed away the excess vinyl.
Use a weeding tool to remove the centers of the letters.
Cut a piece of transfer tape a little bigger than the design and place over the vinyl. Rub over the design to help it stick to the transfer tape.
Use an application tool and rub over the letters.
Cut off the excess transfer tape.
Flip the design over and carefully pull off the vinyl backing.
Place the design on the sign blank and center. Rub over the letters again.
Then, pull off the transfer tape and your sign is done. Seriously, who wouldn’t love to get a sign like this from a child or anyone?!?
I usually follow these steps to create a DIY sign, and I hope they can be helpful to you in creating a meaningful gift for your mother.
