DIY Wedding Day Countdown Chalkboard Sign with Cricut

DIY Bridal Shower Decor with Cricut - Wedding Day Countdown Chalkboard Sign

My sister-in-law is getting married in a few weeks, and before the wedding is the bridal shower! It’s a very exciting time for our family and I have already been working on the decor for her bridal shower. So when Cricut, one of my favorite companies to work with, was looking for Cricut Wedding projects to help celebrate the launch of the Wedding DIY category on Cricut.com, it was the perfect fit! What is so exciting about lucky couples who get married today is that they have so many creative options! A Cricut Explore makes personalizing your wedding so easy, and you get the high quality results that bring your unique vision to life. What I love about Cricut and weddings is that, “It’s Your Story, Make it Personal.”

I thought it would be fun to make a personalized sign for my sister-in-law that we can incorporate into her bridal shower, so I decided on a wedding day countdown. For this project I used Cricut glitter vinyl, which I’m obsessed with, and Circuit’s peony shape from the online Cricut Design Space to create the peony swag across the top. I used a large chalkboard that I purchased from Hobby Lobby as the sign. I wanted something she could reuse at her new home with her husband and I loved how the black chalkboard finish made the gold glitter vinyl pop.

I was super excited to find an extra long 12×24 cutting mat at my craft store. It made my sign making so much easier!

I laid out my design in Cricut Design Space. This part was pretty simple. I used one of the fonts available from Cricut called, Market Street Fonts – Paint Can.

Then I cut using the proper preset vinyl setting. I love, love cutting with my Cricut Explore. It just cuts so smoothly!

Using the extra strong transfer tape, I transferred my cut vinyl to the chalkboard. The glitter is just so pretty!

I knew I wanted some 3 dimensional flowers for above the vinyl lettering, so I used the peony 3D shape, also available in Cricut Design Space.  I found some really helpful tips for assembling the Cricut 3D flowers here, on Hey, Let’s Make Stuff.

I am really happy with how cute these flowers turned out! I used clear drying glue to assemble them, then arranged them in an arch shape and hot glued them to the chalkboard.

I think it turned out really beautifully and I just love the professional results I get with my Cricut Explore.

The vinyl is easily removed, so after the shower, my sister-in-law can use a chalk marker to count down the days until she says I do, or we can remove the vinyl completely and make a new sign for the wedding day.
