One of my favorite activities throughout the year is participating in Craft Lightning because who doesn’t love quick crafts? This time the event is being hosted by my friends and fellow bloggers: Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts, Jen from 100 Directions, and Jessica from Mad in Crafts. They gather a group of bloggers that each submit crafts and then we all link them up so you can have tons of DIY craft inspiration. This month we are all sharing Holiday crafts made with our Cricut machine! I made this darling Christmas Merry and Bright sign with a Flamingo Santa! You can make this DIY Christmas Sign with our FREE Merry & Bright Christmas SVG and a flamingo image from Cricut Design Space.
What you Need to Make this DIY Christmas Merry and Bright Sign

How to Make a DIY Christmas Merry and Bright Sign
This Merry and Bright Sign will consist of two different images: the Santa Flamingo image from Cricut Design Space, plus the Merry and Bright SVG that you can upload below. I have created the Merry and Bright SVG as a single unit so that it can be used by itself for tons of other DIY Christmas Crafts!

Please use this FREE Christmas SVG for Personal Use Only
After downloading the SVG File, you’ll need to upload it into Cricut Design Space by clicking the “Upload” button in the left column. Should you wish to make the DIY Christmas Sign as pictured, you’ll need to slice the “Merry and Bright” image to make it into two separate pieces. Then add the flamingo Santa image from Cricut Design Space. You can also access the Flamingo Santa image that I have optimized for layering iron-on vinyl HERE.
Size the whole image to fit your sign (or shirt!) by clicking “Select All” (in the top bar) and then dragging to resize.
When you’re ready to cut your design, click “Make It.”
*Make sure that you Mirror ALL of the mats/colors before cutting if you are using Iron On!*
After you’ve cut out all of the design pieces, weed away all of the unneeded Iron On.
Preheat your EasyPress to 300 degrees if you’re using Iron On + wood. If you’re using other materials, check the Cricut EasyPress Recommended Settings chart HERE.
Place the images on your wood sign (bottom layer first).
Press on the wood for 40 seconds using the EasyPress.
Continue with the iron on layers. Use the Cricut Iron On Protective Sheet to cover the bottom layers as you iron on the top to make sure that you don’t accidentally overlap any of the plastic carrier sheets under the upper layers of Iron On.
Place ribbon in the holes and hang your sign!
I adore how this DIY Merry and Bright Sign came out! It’s perfect for a non-traditional Christmas display, or even for a kid’s room!
