Want to know a secret? Wreath’s don’t always have to be round, in fact I’m a huge fan of unconventional wreaths and door decor. I’ve shared a few different ideas on the blog over the years from this hanging flower basket, to a plate charger wreath and square twig wreath. Today, I’m stepping out of the box again with a Hanging State Sign! Of course you could simply use this as decor or in a gallery wall, or you can state pride and rep it on your door!
I’m joining several other bloggers today as we all share our version of spring wreaths. I kid you not, they are ALL gorgeous and you have to scroll down to see them all!
Hanging State Sign
I’m really partial to Washington State. I grew up here and I absolutely love living in the PNW with all the nature that surrounds us. I often like sneak a little Northwest pride into my room designs, whether it’s adding mountains or nature or something like that. Anyway, here is how you can make your own personalized state sign with a fun design!
I added a little bit of greenery and florals to the top of my sign to give a spring wreath feel. But you can always customize it to whatever season you wish, or just keep it plain for every day decor.
Personalized State Sign Tutorial
- Basic pre-made 10X10 wood canvas
- White paint
- Cricut Explorer Air 2
- Black Vinyl
- Transfer Paper
- Faux Flowers
For this project, you will need a Cricut to get the exact artwork I used. Head to Cricut.com and search for “Washington Flowers. #M9196F91 “. I made my design roughly 8″ X 6” to fit the canvas. Then cut it onto black vinyl. It took a long time peel off all those little details, but it was worth it!
Using transfer tape, carefully apply the design to the wood canvas. TIP: Always check which kind of transfer tape you are using before applying it! I didn’t check mine and I used the strong adhesive transfer tape instead of the normal transfer tape and it made the project a teeny tiny bit more difficult to do! So just take the time to slow down and check the details :)
See so easy! Now dress it up with a few flowers and you are good to go! A project that might only take you 30-45 minutes, IF you use the right transfer tape ;)
