Our Hello Summer Popsicle Plaque is not only easy to make with your Cricut, it’s also really cute and is the perfect way to welcome Summer to your home!
I happen to think popsicles and ice cream go together in the Summer like BBQ and family get togethers.
I love decorating for my house in the Summer with bright colors that are both welcoming and calming. That’s one of the reasons I love this Hello Summer plaque! I think once you make it, you will too!
Before you get started on making this Hello Summer Popsicle Plaque, here are a few helpful hints:
WHAT MATERIALS ARE NEEDED TO MAKE THIS POPSCILE PLAQUE?
Summer SVG Bundle, Cricut Premium Vinyl, Cricut Transfer Tape, Wood, Krylon Clear Glaze, White craft paint.
DOES CRICUT VINYL STICK TO WOOD?
Yes, it does. It will stick to wood that is stained, however, it would be best to seal it after you are done so it won’t lift away from the wood.

How to Make A Hello Summer Popsicle Plaque with your Cricut
- Cricut machine with fine point blade
- Cricut Spatula, or thick card
- Cricut Standard Grip Mat
- Cricut Weeder tool
- Paint brush
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Summer SVG Bundle
- Cricut Premium Vinyl - 6 coordinating colors
- Cricut Premium Vinyl - beige for popsicle sticks
- Cricut Transfer Tape cut to 5”x9”
- Wood - 5 ½” x 12”
- Krylon Clear Glaze
- White craft paint
- Paint your wood on all sides. A second coat may be necessary.
- Add the svg file to Cricut Design Space, and resize to 4 ½ inches high.
- Cut the file, one color at a time, or another method that may be easier for you. The “hello” and the “u” will be the same color, so you will need the largest piece of vinyl 5”x9” for this one.
- Once your design is cut, weed out any excess vinyl, and trim to size if needed.
- Once everything is trimmed, lay the design (starting with the “hello” and “u” out on the Cricut Mat, and line it up.
- Remove the backing from transfer tape, and place transfer tape over your design.
- Use the spatula or a thick card to rub the design into the transfer tape.
- Remove the vinyl backing.
- Place design (on transfer tape) centered on your piece of wood, and run design onto wood using the spatula or thick card.
- Carefully peel up the transfer tape, making sure to press down any of your design that may want to come up.
- Rub the spatula or thick card over your design again, if needed.
- Spray the clear glaze over your project, using newspaper or something disposable to place under it.
- Allow glaze to dry, and add a second coat, if needed.
