How to craft a pumpkin patch sign

After our visit to the pumpkin patch over the weekend I was excited to use the pumpkins we picked to decorate our home. We made sure to pick as many varieties as we could to make a really colourful pumpkin display. I bought a cheap and cheerful wooden plaque blank for Hobbycraft and used my Cricut Maker to cut a cute little vinyl decal. It looks super cute!

How to craft a pumpkin patch sign

I found the free pumpkin sign on Cricut Design Space. There are loads you can use for free but I knew this would fit perfectly on the wooden plaque I had.

I measured the wooden plaque and re-sized the design to make sure it fitted.

I picked a gorgeous vinyl from my off cuts to use, placed it on the Standard Grip Mat and set my machine to cut.

It didn’t take long to cut and I removed it from the mat. I then trimmed the sign using my Cricut paper guillotine and started to weed the surplus away.

I placed a piece of Cricut Transfer tape over the design and placed it on my wooden blank. I carefully removed the Transfer Tape to reveal the sign.

I love our little pumpkin patch sign. The kids had fun re-arranging all our colourful pumpkins and squashes to make a lovely seasonal display.
