A few months ago, Silhouette America sent me a goodie box full of samples of their brand new materials and I was SO excited to get creating with them! So excited, in fact, that I got a little bit of craft paralysis, because I didn’t want to “waste” these materials on just any projects. No, I needed to come up with the *perfect* way to use each one, and not mess it up, since I only had 1 sample sheet of each one…oh, the pressure! After a while, though, I decided that was super silly – I just needed to dig in and try them out, and I could always get more of the materials I wanted to make more stuff with. Duh. #crafterproblems
So I tried out the brand new wood vinyl the other day on a simple fall sign, and it’s so neat! It comes in 3 colors – maple, which is a light wood color, a medium shade called walnut, and ebony, which is a very dark brown. It cuts just like vinyl, though it seems a little thicker and stiffer than regular vinyl. It was a breeze to cut, weed and apply.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but a video is worth about a million! So rather than try to describe it to you, I made a quick video of my first project with wood vinyl.

I just love the look of the wood vinyl! It’s hard to capture in photos, but it adds such a neat texture to the sign, don’t you think?
I also want to try a reverse design with this vinyl…weed the letters/design and leave the background, so it looks like a painted wood sign! Do you think that would work?
How cute would this little sign be on a coffee bar or next to your coffee maker? (Especially for all those pumpkin spice lovers out there – myself included!)
It’s settled on my front porch for now, but I’m not sure it will stay there…we’ll see.
