Step 1. Download the Free “Happiness Is Homemade” PDF File and upload it to whichever program file your cutting machine uses. You may have to resize and splice the image to have it fit on a 12″ x 24″ cutting board. Don’t forget to mirror the image! Once cut, weed out excess vinyl and put aside until you’re done painting the frame.
Step 2. It’s going to take a few steps to give the frame that nice weathered farmhouse look but it’ll be totally worth it! First, remove the plastic window pane and place aside. Apply a light coat of white chalk paint to the front and sides of the frame. Allow to dry completely.
Step 4. To finish the “weathered” look, apply a bit of wood stain or watered down brown paint to a paper towel and sweep along the exposed wood edges. I added some streaks to the front of the panel as well. You can always go back and use the sandpaper if you’re unhappy with any dark accents.
Step 5. Return the plastic pane to the frame and secure tightly in place. Use transfer paper to apply the mirrored vinyl image to the back of the window pane. Press out any bubbles and you’re done with your DIY farmhouse decor sign!
