The holiday season is looking very different in 2020! Grab this FREE SVG file to commemorate (or commiserate) about staying home for the holidays during these challenging times! Perfect to use on a wood sign like the example, on pillow covers, t-shirts or on a gift basket! The file is easily adjustable to remove words and to simply have the "Home for the Holidays" script as a design.
Thank you all so much for all your kind words on my Front Porch Christmas Tour I posted yesterday.
The farmhouse sign I created this year was by far your favorite! It's so easy to make, and with the SVG file already created it should only take you a few minutes!

The steps to make it are so simple. The blank wood sign I found at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. You can find similar styles on Amazon. The chalkboard ones work well too- just give them a coat with white chalk paint.
I actually used this exact blank frame board to make this Christmas Sign. If you've never attached vinyl to wood before be sure to check out the post because it will show you step by step exactly how to do it. I've even included a video!
To match the gold wire wreaths and the other sparkly Christmas decor, I used Cricut metallic vinyl that I had in my stash. I love when you have what you already need!
To transfer the vinyl to the wood I used a new technique that I am loving-- instead of the sticky transfer tape, I simply used Glad Press and Seal. It's crazy how well it works for this! I feel in love with it this summer when I realized I could transfer vinyl to card stock and not have the tape tear the card stock.
Just like the other "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" sign, I'm including the SVG for this sign free for all of you to enjoy and use (personal use only please!). The download included at the bottom of this post is for the SVG file. I tweaked it a bit, so you can remove "staying" and "2020" and simply have the "Home for the Holidays" for another year. LOL
For those of you who have a Cricut machine, it's easy to upload the SVG and hit "Make it". When you do that though, you will notice your design space cutting mat view will look like this:
That's because of the way I set up the file. If you aren't using this portion, you can delete it. If you are and want it to line up like my sign, that's easy to remedy (see picture below).
You'll want to select both "2020" and "staying" in the top right corner, next you will go down to the lower right hand corner and circle weld. When you click "make it" it will appear with the space in between the words to fit "home for the holidays". I've circled the steps in the photo below:
Not too complicated is it? I'm hoping to share more SVG's for you to use over the holiday season, as well as crafts like the wire wreaths. Maybe crafting will keep those of us staying home busy. I'd love to see this design on a pillow, so if you make one, please tag me on Facebook or Instagram, so I can show it off and let others see your craftiness!
Share the free design with your friends and Pin For Later!
