It’s no secret that Silhouette Cameo and Cricut small business owners that sell unique products often do better than those that sell the same thing as other shops. Today, I’m offering a tutorial to create a wood sign advent calendar to sell this holiday season.

Supplies Needed

Step by Step Wood Sign Advent Calendar Tutorial

  1. Cut, sand, and stain your wood and 25 wood discs. Allow everything to dry completely. DIY Wood Sign Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial. Great for small business Silhouette Cameo and Cricut Explore crafters. By cuttingforbusiness.com.
  2. Cut all three stencils in vinyl using your Silhouette or Cricut and weed them. DIY Wood Sign Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial. Great for small business Silhouette Cameo and Cricut Explore crafters. By cuttingforbusiness.com.
  3. Drill holes in each wood disc. I put the hole centered and near the middle. DIY Wood Sign Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial. Great for small business Silhouette Cameo and Cricut Explore crafters. By cuttingforbusiness.com.
  4. Using the stencils, paint the sign. First paint the reindeer, then add the lettering after the stencil has dried. I like to add a personal touch to my signs, so I used my fingerprint to make a red nose for Rudolph. Need help with crisp paint lines? See this postDIY Wood Sign Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial.

  5. While your sign is drying, paint numbers onto the wooden discs. I turned my stencil upside down and put the discs on, then turned it over, removed the transfer tape, and spray painted them all at once.DIY Wood Sign Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial.

  6. Next, screw in your hooks throughout the antlers. There is no right or wrong placement. I found it helpful to use a hammer to tap each hook in and then screw it the rest of the way. Be careful not to overtighten or you’ll crack the board. DIY Wood Sign Christmas Advent Calendar Tutorial. Great for small business Silhouette Cameo and Cricut Explore crafters.

  7. Hang your discs on the hooks, add a hanger of your choice to the back, and you are done!

This is a labor intensive product to create, so be sure that you price accordingly. In my area, I would sell for $80 to $100+.
