Wanna make your own Mother’s Day Subway Art?

Here’s what you need:

11×14 inch unfinished wooden plaque

Die cutting machine

Vinyl/transfer tape

Two contrasting acrylic paint colors

Paint brush

Scrapbook hook

Begin by painting your wooden plaque in the color you want your letters.  {In my case, I chose white.}


I created the template for my Mother’s Day Subway Art on my die cut machine and cut out on vinyl.  Using your scrapbook hook, pull out the centers of the letters and then peel away the remaining vinyl.  Apply the vinyl to the wood using the transfer paper.


Once your vinyl is applied and secure, begin painting with the other paint color.  It took me about two coats of the turquoise before it was completely covered.


Allow about an hour to dry completely before removing the vinyl.  Once you are sure it is dry, use the scrapbook hook to carefully peel off the vinyl.


If needed, touch up where the top color bled through.

I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!  It’s the perfect way to say “Mom” in ANY language!

    I could have swqorn I left a comment before to thank you for hosting such an awesome Giveaway! And I might have but maybe they don’t all show. At any rate I think this had to be the best Giveaway one could have offered for a Mother’s Day event!
