I had some one send me this picture and ask if I could make a wood plaque for them so they could make this sign that they saw on Pintrest.
MDF wood from Home Depot
Rustoleum 2X spray paint
15″ KNK Maxx
Red capped blade
Obviously the one in the picture was hand painted but she wanted to make a sign like it so that she could put her grandchild’s footprints on the plaque.
I get my wood at Home Depot and they are nice enough to cut it to size for me. I usually get it cut into 12″x24″ pieces and then if I need it smaller my husband cuts it. But, Home Depot will cut it any size for you. This plaque was 8″x 12″.
I then spray painted the plaque with white Rustoleum 2X spray paint. I like to let the paint dry for at least 24 hours. I then use a fine sanding block and lightly sand it. This makes a huge difference in having the vinyl adhere. I use a micro dusting cloth to remove any dust.
I designed the file in KNK Studio. The ovals represent the size of the little ones feet. It gave me a perspective for sizing the other pieces. The other “pieces” were either drawn in KNK Studio or used the basic shape tool.
I cut the pieces from outdoor vinyl.
Here is the file twas the night before Christmas
So when you see something on Pintrest that you like don’t be afraid to try making it, you still have 10 days until Christmas Eve to make some awesome gifts. Enjoy the Holidays!
