One of my favorite things to create with my Cricut is custom Home Decor. Nothing makes a house a home more than simple personal touches. I’ve been wanting to make my own Scripture Sign with one of my favorite Bible scriptures for our family room for quite some time. So when I saw that the material for the current Craft Lightning Series was wood, I knew this was my chance!

I actually ordered this piece of stained wood from Oriental Trading Company for a different project a while back, but didn’t end up using it. Turns out with our new Family Room Refresh, it’s just the right finish and with some white vinyl will match perfectly. So let’s get started on this easy DIY Scripture Sign!
How to Make a Scripture Sign in Under 15 Minutes
To start this project you will want to think of your favorite Bible Scripture. I have so many, but I Psalm 46:10 is definitely a top favorite. I need the daily reminder of knowing that God is control of all things. And this scripture reminds me of just that. I actually plan to hang this on the wall but I still need to find the perfect spot, so until then its on my hearth, front and center.
What you will need:
- Cricut Explore Air 2™ or Cricut Maker
- Cutting Mat (I used the 12×24 mat for my sign)
- Cricut Vinyl
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Cricut Tools
- Wood of your choice – I used this one HERE
- If you like this scripture, you can find my design HERE.
Open my design in Cricut Design Space, resize as needed and click the Make It button. The design will display on the virtual mat, then click Continue.
Move the dial to Vinyl and apply the vinyl to your mat
Once the mat is loaded you can click the GO button in Design Space and the info will be sent to the Cricut. Click the Cricut Logo button on the machine to start cutting.
Once the design is cut, unload the mat. Using your Cricut Tools; weed the vinyl to expose the design.
Cut a piece of Transfer Tape close to the same size of the design and remove the paper backing. Apply the transfer tape on top of your design.
Rub the Transfer Tape firmly on top of the vinyl, using the burnish tool. I used the XL Scraper Tool for this large surface. And slowly pull back the Transfer Tape. The design will then come off the paper backing for easy application.
Line up your design on top of the wood. Rub the Transfer Tape firmly and slowly remove the Transfer Tape.
Doesn’t that look great? I love how even the smaller letters transferred perfectly!
And that’s all you need to create your own DIY Scripture Sign in 15 minutes or less!
Happy Crafting & GOD BLESS!
