How Do You Make a Welcome Sign on a Cricut?

Making a welcome sign on a Cricut is a great way to give your home, office, or other space an inviting look. Not only can you make a custom sign with your own text and graphics, but it’s also easy to do thanks to the many tools that the Cricut has to offer. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make a welcome sign on your Cricut.

Step 1: Gather Supplies – The first step in making any project with the Cricut is gathering all of the supplies you need. For this project, you will need your Cricut machine and cartridges, vinyl for the lettering, transfer tape for transferring the vinyl onto the surface of your sign, and cardstock or heavy paper for creating the backing for your sign.

Step 2: Design Your Welcome Sign – The next step is designing your welcome sign using Cricut Design Space. You can use fonts and shapes from any cartridges you have as well as add images if desired. When you’re done designing, cut out your design using your Cricut machine and then weed out any excess vinyl using weeding tools or tweezers.

Step 3: Transfer Your Design – Once all of the pieces of your design are weeded out and ready to go, it’s time to transfer it onto your surface of choice. Apply transfer tape over top of each piece of vinyl before transferring it onto the surface, making sure that all pieces are lined up correctly before removing the backing from each piece of vinyl.

Step 4: Attach Your Backing – The last step in creating a welcome sign on a Cricut is attaching a backing for durability and stability. Cut out a piece of cardstock or heavy paper to fit behind the design so that when hung up it won’t bend or warp over time. Secure it in place using glue or double-sided tape.


Making a welcome sign on a Cricut is easy and fun! With just some basic supplies like vinyl and cardstock plus some creativity in designing with Design Space, you can create an inviting look for any space in no time at all.
