Farm Fresh Rustic Christmas Tree Sign

If this doesn't convince you that you need a vinyl cutting machine then nothing will!

I will be the first to admit that there is definitely a learning curve with these machines. I'm including my Amazon links at no additional cost to you in case you are thinking of asking Santa for one!

I've owned my Silhouette Cameo for a few years now, I even upgraded to the larger model. The Portrait is the smaller model if you want to start there.

Every time I use it I learn something new. I'm not a big direction reader so I joined a group on Facebook that really helps me out a lot. You can also Google almost anything you need to know. There are hundreds of video tutorials out there.

The Silhouette company has an online resource for files, like the one I used here and they are amazing. 

When I saw the file for this Christmas tree stencil I knew it was perfect for what I wanted to make.

After cutting the reclaimed wood to size, staining it, giving it a coat of white paint, then cutting the file to use as a stencil... I was ready to paint and distress this beauty. 

It really isn't too difficult and practice makes perfect. By the next holiday you could be creating your own signs!

This one is a keeper for sure!

If you're really careful when weeding the vinyl, you can save the pieces and make another sign. This sign was painted with red over the vinyl and over white paint, then distressed.

  1. Susan, I love that Christmas tree design too! Wondering if you can help me decide. I'm going to purchase a machine, and don't want to over buy my (lacking) skills but want one I can grow into so I don't have to get a new one in a short time. Which machine would you buy if you were me?

    1. Hi Sugar! If I were you I would start with the Silhouette Portrait. It is a smaller one and the one I used at first. If you are doing small projects it is all you need.
