Using Adhesive Vinyl

If you are a beginning crafter, you may want to try working with adhesive vinyl for your wood sign projects. Adhesive vinyl is easier and faster to work with than HTV. There is a lesser chance that you can make a mistake with adhesive vinyl.

The first step is to sand down the wood whether it is raw wood or stained wood. Vinyl sticks even to untreated wood. Sanding a wooden surface makes the uneven surface into a smoother surface which will make the vinyl stick better.

The next step is to treat the wood you are working on. In treating the raw wood surface, you can apply a coat of polycrylic, wood stain, or acrylic paint that the vinyl can grip onto. All these primer or base coat treatments are available for purchase in most craft stores.


It is important that you give the primer 24-48 hours to dry and completely set before you proceed to the next step. Next, it is time to apply your vinyl decal. If you are a beginner and you don’t know how to make a vinyl decal, you may find this beginner’s guide for crafting helpful.
