My whole life, I grew up believing I was very Irish. And, even though Ancestry DNA shows that I am more Scottish than Irish, I still embrace my Irish heritage. So, St. Paddy’s Day is a big deal in my family. And, this simple DIY St. Patrick’s Day Sign is perfect for our home in March, and all year long.
If you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
DIY Signs with Cricut or Silhouette
I love to use my Cricut to create custom signs and gifts for our home and friends. However, a car accident many years ago left me with no feeling in my dominant hand, so it’s hard for me to paint as nicely as I would like. But, my Cricut, and HTV have been a game changer for me!
These are a few of my favorite projects, but, literally any cut file can be used to create a custom sign.

When I make any sign for my home, my first stop is the hardware store for scrap or inexpensive lumber. Sometimes I use 1×4’s, 1×6’s, or even scrap pieces of plywood.
After I find the wood I want to use, I bring it home and cut it to length. If I am using 1x lumber, I also cut two pieces that are the width of the boards I am using to act as a brace on the top and bottom of the sign.
Next, I paint or stain the wood.
Then, I upload my SVG file to Cricut Design Space and cut the file using Iron On.
Once the image is cut, I weed the excess Iron On, and place it onto the wood sign.
After I am happy with the placement, I use an EasyPress to press it onto the wood.
