Travel SVG Sign Instructions
Simply follow these step-by-step instructions to make your wooden sign with the adventure awaits SVG file.
Start by painting all of your individual pieces, then set them aside and allow them to dry. You may need two coats on some of the wood pieces.
I actually mixed the color I painted the sign with white and added that to my camper. The colors are completely up to you, however.
While your pieces dry, cut the travel SVG from vinyl. We are going to use the vinyl as a stencil, so don’t worry about what color it is.
Weed away all of the excess pieces.
Then use transfer tape to put it in place on the sign.
My truck and camper are NOT glued down yet in the image below. I just have them in place to locate the lettering.
Press the vinyl down well and remove the transfer tape.
Then, go over the entire sign with a really light coat of white paint. This gives the sign a rustic feel.
Go over the words first then continue over the entire sign.
Then peel back the vinyl from the lettering to reveal your design!
Once all of your paint has dried, add the camper and truck with Beacon Power-Tac. Allow to dry completely before hanging.
Now your fun camper sign is complete! This is a great use for that free travel SVG file, but there are plenty of other potential uses as well!
Think about shirts, can koozies, vinyl lettering on your car, and so much more.
Here are a few questions I see readers ask about working with SVG patterns. If you have a question and don’t see it answered down below, please leave it for me in the comments.
How do you make wood signs with Cricut vinyl?
Unlike other Cricut vinyl projects where you apply the vinyl to a material, this project simply uses the vinyl words as a stencil. That allows you to basically just paint the wood and glue the camper and truck to the sign for an easy project.
To learn more about working with vinyl, check out my guide on How To Use Cricut Vinyl.
Can I use a hot glue gun instead of Beacon Power Tac Adhesive?
I would not recommend it for this project. Although hot glue would probably work, it won’t provide the strong, permanent adhesion that Beacon Power Tac Adhesive can offer.
A travel SVG is a perfect way to celebrate summer and all of those adventures you are going to have with your family.
