Making a live laugh love vinyl on wood sign was an inexpensive makeover of a clearance rack sign. Paint and vinyl letters were all it took to have the sign fitting in with my decor.

For this month’s challenge, I sorted through a bin full of of thrift store plaques and clearance rack signs that I’ve purchased over the last year. It’s hard to pass up these items when they are priced so low and just need a quick makeover. I spent more time deciding on what quote I would use than it took to give the sign its makeover.
How to Make a Live Laugh Love Vinyl on Wood Sign
Supplies Used for Live Laugh Love Vinyl on Wood Sign
- Clearance Rack Sign
- Gray Chalk Paint
- White Chalk Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Cricut & Weeding Tool
- White Vinyl
I found two of these wood signs in the clearance aisle at Walmart some time last year. They had three price stickers on them and the last one had them marked down to $1.00 each. They were cute enough signs, but they didn’t fit in with my decor.
After one coat of Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in Castle, the print on the sign was still showing through.
A second coat covered it well and once it was dry, I added strips of Frog Tape, leaving the grooves in the wood uncovered. I used Home Decor Chalk Paint in White to paint the grooves.
Using Design Space for my Cricut, I created the words for the plaque. Live Simply and Love Deeply are in Typewriter Std Regular Font and Laugh Often is in Elizabeth font.
After cutting the words and weeding them, I added each line to one of the areas of the plaque. I have lots of white vinyl in my craft stash, so this was another way to help de-stash.
I have the plaque displayed on a bookcase that got a makeover a few years ago that’s in one of our guest bedrooms. It fits in well with the coastal decor on the shelf. The plaque is made to hang on the wall, but I used a small picture stand behind it to keep it upright.
The second of the two plaques is getting a makeover for summer, but I haven’t decided on the quote yet.Give a clearance rack sign an easy makeover with paint and vinyl letters. #CricutProject #CraftRoomDeStashChallenge #LiveLaughLoveSign Click To Tweet
