It’s summer time, and when I think of summer, I find myself wishing I was at the beach! Whether it’s on the lake or on the ocean where you hit the beach, this sign is perfect to display during the summer!
This post contains affiliate links.
The supplies that you’ll need to make this sign yourself are:
- Cricut Explore Machine
- Cricut Design Space
- Cricut Brights Vinyl Sampler Pack – 1 12×12 sheet each of Sunshine, Lime, Caribbean, Flamingo, Azure, and Grape
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Cricut Tool Kit
- Weathered Board
- White Paint
- Sponge Brush
Start by painting your board lightly with the white paint. Because I was using a weathered board, it had cracks, and lightly painting it white, just added to the weathered, beachy look.
While your paint dries, use your Cricut Explore machine to cut your vinyl. I used the Azure vinyl for this project. It is the perfect beachy color.
Use your weeding tool to take out the unwanted vinyl after it is all cut.
Place transfer tape over the top of the vinyl, then peel it up.
Once you have it peeled up, place it on your board. Make sure you get it straight, and the smooth it out with Cricut scrapper. Once you have it all smoothed out, peel up your transfer tape.
Now your are all ready to “Hit The Beach.” This would be a fun addition to a bathroom, or use it to decorate for the summer time in your home.
I love the way the Azure blue vinyl really pops on this sign. It’s just perfect!
