Anyone else totally ready for spring?  We had some nice weather in the middle of February and it kind-of tricked me into thinking spring was here.  And then we got hit with a huge snow storm and I realized winter isn’t quite over. 🙁 Even though it’s not quite spring outside, I’m ready to get some spring colors up on the inside.

Stenciled Pallet Sign for Silhouette and Cricut | Free SVG spring cut fileThis post contains affiliate links

 I love the look of pallet projects, but sometimes gathering the wood, cutting it all down to size, and putting it all together can be a pain.  When I saw these wood pallets signs, I knew they would be great option if you want the pallet look, but not all the trouble.  I purchased mine from Amazon, but I’ve also seen them at Walmart and Joann’s. Now I want to show you how stencil a pallet sign.

Here is what you need:

Wood Pallet Sign (mine is 12″ x 12″)
– Vinyl for stencil
– Paint
Mod Podge (Optional)
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Cut File (see link below)

Here is what you do:

1. Use your electronic cutter to cut your stencil out of vinyl.  I created 4 different stencils for this sign (layout shown below).  You could do less depending on how you want the layers to look. Weed away the excess vinyl and apply the transfer tape.

2. Apply the bottom letters to the wood first.

3. Because the wood isn’t completely smooth, you can paint a light coat of Mod-Podge over the letters to help prevent bleeding.  After that dries, paint two light coats of paint on each letter.
 4. Let the paint dry and then remove the vinyl.  Nice crisp lines – love that!
5. Repeat the above steps with all your layers of vinyl.
And just like that, it’s finished.  Don’t you just love the pretty colors of spring?

    • Once you’ve opened the file in your software, ungroup the letters. Then, spread them apart so they fill up the space of your sign.
