Front Door Sign “ Hello Summer” Tutorial

Last week I showed you guys my patio makeover! Today I want to show you how to make your own Hello Summer sign using your silhouette.

I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile but now that I have NEW fancy silhouette machine I can do all the projects I want!

Summer comes early in these parts so this sign was NEEDED:0)

Last year during one of my Goodwill trips I picked up a chippy wood frame. It has been floating around the house  trying to find the perfect place to land.! The front patio was it!

I uploaded the tandem bicycle to my silhouette machine. This, to me is a perfect symbol for summer! Bicycle built for two! A big oak tree with a tire swing, lemons, and a bathing suit are all great choices to!

The font I used was Edwardian Script to type out hello summer.

Then I printed it off on the beautiful navy vinyl! IMG_6711_8190-1

Attached it to the glass part of the frame and tada!

If you don’t have one of these machines, you can easily do something like this with a stencil or free hand if your fearless! It can be an easy printable also! Just make sure you seal the frame with some clear protectant for outside use!! Have fun!
