What You Will Need

  • Wood Pallet Box
  • White Vinyl
  • Cricut machine
  • Wood Stain
  • Pink Craft Paint
  • White Craft Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Miniatures
  • Hot Glue and Glue Gun
  • Transfer Tape
  • Snow and Love File (see how to download above)


  • Now that you have your supplies and cut file, it is time to make your sign! Start by staining the bottom of your pallet box with wood stain. Brush on, allow to sit a few minutes, then wipe away any excess with a rag.
  • You can actually paint the back of the box while your stain is still wet. Just flip it over and give the entire back and sides a couple of coats of white paint. Allow to dry in between coats and also allow the entire thing to dry completely before continuing.
  • In the meantime, you can get your cut file above and upload it to your Cricut machine. Size it to fit your sign and cut from the white vinyl. Weed away all excess including the centers of letters.
  • Once your paint has dried, you can apply the vinyl with some transfer tape. Press it down really well.
  • Now if you have ever used vinyl as masking, you may have been frustrated with the bleed under the sides. Have no fear! We have a solution for you! Just paint over your letter with the base coat (in our case white) before continuing and allow to dry.
  • Once dry, come back with your pink color over the top. I did want a rustic look to this. So I used a fairly dry brush and stopped short of the edges as shown below.
  • Allow this to dry then just peel back your vinyl to reveal some gorgeous lettering on your sign! Using vinyl as masking is a great way to make wooden signs with sayings.
  • Perhaps you don't want to do the paint technique indicated above. You can just use the vinyl directly on the sign as well. We will do that for the "SNOW" side of this project. Just flip the dried sign over and paint the edges of your box white. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
  • Then put your weeded "SNOW" vinyl down on the box with some transfer tape. Press down really well then peel back your tape.
  • You can also add a few miniatures to this side with some hot glue if you would like.
