Welcome to “Bling on the Crafts” Craft Blog Hop for bloggers to link and share their sparkly, shiny, or blingy craft posts on the first Monday of each month. This months theme is Luck/St.Patrick’s Day.
I love shamrocks and St.Patrick’s Day. This Glittery Lucky Charm Sign will add sparkle and charm to your St. Patrick’s Day decor or if you love shamrocks leave it out all year. Shamrocks and glitter are a perfect combination. I couldn’t believe when I looked at my St. Patrick’s Day decor that I didn’t have a lucky charm sign.
I am really happy to work with our sponsor, Happy Crafters today to share this project with Happy Crafters Glitter HTV (Heat Transferred Vinyl). Below are some affiliate links and I may make a commission for purchases made through the following links.
Supplies for the Glittery Lucky Charm Sign:
Let’s Get Crafting:
This sign was fun to make and it was my first time trying my Cricut EasyPress with HTV on wood. When doing research for this project I read many blog post about using this method and how awesome the HTV looks on wood (and I totally agree).
For the wood sign, my husband used an extra piece of wood and made a 6×6 sign. I painted it with white chalk paint and I attempted to paint the sides of the sign black, but I couldn’t get a straight clean edge. So I painted over the black with white and sanded the edges after it dried to give it a more rustic look. I don’t usually do this with my signs and I can’t decide if I like it or not.
In Cricut Design Space I created the SVG. I used the font Berrylicious Font for the text. The circle is an uploaded image and the shamrocks are from Cricut Design Space™ using my Cricut Access Premium membership.
Make sure when using HTV you remember to place the shiny side down on the mat and make your images mirror when you go to cut. After cutting and weeding your design, place them on the piece of wood where you would like them. Make sure you weed slowly and carefully.
For wood and Glitter HTV Cricut recommends 300F for 40 seconds. I use my EasyPress on a portable ironing pad similar to this one Portable Ironing Pad Mat Blanket for Table Top and Travelling 19″ x 32″ on my kitchen counter.
First I pressed the shamrocks and the circle in the center. Then peeled the film off.
Then I pressed the words in the center of the circle and peel off the film when it cools.
I am in love with this sign and how it came out. I want to make all kinds of signs now with HTV and wood. This came out so well and was so easy to create. If you have been thinking about the Cricut EasyPress, get it. I promise it will be worth it.
