Can You Use a Cricut to Make Wood Signs?

Cricut machines are a popular crafting tool used for making scrapbook pages, card designs and other paper projects. However, there is a lesser-known use for the Cricut machine—making wood signs. With the right materials and a Cricut machine, it is possible to make beautiful, custom-made wood signs for your home or business.

To use a Cricut machine to make wood signs, you’ll need some supplies. You’ll need wood boards of your desired size and thickness, vinyl in your desired color and design (you can purchase pre-made designs or make your own with the Cricut Design Space software), transfer paper to move the vinyl onto the wood, and an adhesive spray or aerosol glue to attach the vinyl to the wood.

Once you have all of your supplies gathered together, you will need to measure out your wood board and cut it down to the proper size. Then you will use the Cricut Design Space software to create your design or upload one that you have purchased. Once you have uploaded or created your design in Design Space, you can then cut it out with your Cricut machine using either vinyl or transfer paper.

After cutting out your design, you will need to place it on top of the wood board using either an adhesive spray or aerosol glue. Once the design has been attached to the board, you can then use a sealant spray over top of it for added protection.


Yes, with the right materials and a Cricut machine, it is possible to make beautiful custom-made wood signs for any home or business setting. With just a few simple steps—measuring and cutting down wood boards; creating or uploading designs in Design Space; transferring with either vinyl or transfer paper; and sealing with sealant spray—you can make high-quality wood signs with ease.
