Halloween Vinyl Chalkboard Menu Board

Halloween Vinyl Chalkboard Menu Board

I’m so excited to share a super simple vinyl project today just in time for the Halloween season. I’ve been toying around with this idea in my head for quite some time and I’m so happy I finally made my idea to come to life. After receiving a package of vinyl from MyVinylDirect.com last month I knew I wanted to make a chalkboard menu, and of course with Halloween sneaking up on us I knew this would be the perfect time to make it!

Supplies:

I had Mr. Woodsy rip a piece of wood for me on the table saw. The size was 14 inches long by 10 inches wide.

While he was doing that I went into Cricut Craft Room and designed my image to cut out. I went with the preset Cricut recommendations for the vinyl. However, I typically like a kiss cut which will allow you to peal your design off the paper verse cutting the paper and vinyl entirely.

I waited for my vinyl to cut out.

Carefully remove the vinyl from the Cricut mat. *Note in the background I cut out the same image on paper first to make sure that I liked how my cut out looked. I always advise to do this when working with vinyl.

I laid the inside of the cut out on to the back of the chalkboard vinyl. Using a ruler and pencil I marked a square.

I cut the chalkboard vinyl down to size in my paper slicer.

Then, I placed the purple cut out on top of the wood to figure out placement. I also double checked to make sure that the chalkboard vinyl would cover the square inside.

Using a pencil I marked around the inside and outsides of the purple cut out to use as a guide when I applied the chalkboard vinyl.

I applied the chalkboard vinyl to the wood.

 Then placed the purple cut-out on top to triple check. *The purple vinyl still had the paper backing on it.

Next up, I adhered the front of the purple vinyl to the transfer tape.

Carefully peal back the transfer tape.

Once you pull back the transfer tape your menu board is ready to go.
