I have been seeing tutorials for a painted acrylic sign several places. Most of those, however, are for weddings. I thought I would put my own spin on the trend and do one for a newborn baby out of dollar store supplies. This project is super inexpensive and a great baby shower gift! You will also want to scroll down to the bottom of this post and see the other Cricut dollar store crafts I have for you today. I see a trip to the dollar store in your future.
How to Make a Painted Acrylic Sign
Now that you have your supplies, you can create your own sign for the baby’s stats in just a few steps. Follow the directions in the card below or print and use them to make this sign later.
Dollar Store Sign for Baby
Make this cute acrylic sign with supplies from the dollar store and your Cricut machine.
- Acrylic sign from the dollar store
- Heavyweight White Card Stock
- Paint in a few colors
- White vinyl
- Transfer tape
- Weeding tools
- Cricut machine
- Cut file
Customize the colors on this one to match baby’s nursery. Since I used an acrylic photo stand, this one stands up on it’s own. Want to make one that hangs on the wall instead? Try a piece of acrylic out of a dollar store picture frame and just paint the back instead of using the paper.
You could also give this one without the information and the parents could write it in later with a permanent marker. I love the look of the vinyl more. So, if you want to give this for a baby shower, just be sure to let them know that you will cut vinyl for the details after the birth.
I think everyone will love this cute sign and you don’t even have to tell them how little money it actually costs.
If you have wondered how to make a painted acrylic sign, now you have the instructions and how to make it even cheaper with dollar store supplies.
