Learn how to make this custom glass sign using an SVG file, your Cricut and a glass front picture frame.
I have been wanting to make a glass sign for our home for a few years now. Actually, every since all saw the ones that say “Fresh Baked Pies Served Daily” like you can buy at World Market. Of course, I couldn’t simply BUY the sign. I had to make one, right?!
Well, today I’m over on The Summery Umbrella sharing a step-by-step, full of photos, tutorial on how to make a custom glass sign using this beautiful handlettered SVG file from LZ.
I told you that I’d be sharing a creative idea each month on The Summery Umbrella here. I also told you what a great source The Summery Umbrella is for SVG files for your Cricut® machine. Well, LZ made this SVG design with her very artistic hands and I used the design in this glass frame. I think it turned out perfectly!
Although, in hindsight, I maybe should have used black vinyl for my lettering instead of white. Why? Well, because I have the sign hanging in my bathroom and our walls are painted a light color, which makes the design a little harder to read. But, I had a simple solution. Any idea what it may have been? You can read all about it over on The Summery Umbrella.
