Use this funny welcome sign SVG to create a unique sign for your front door or porch!
The weather is getting warmer and I don’t know about you but I am sooo ready for Spring.

But when it is safe to have big gatherings again, I’m going to open up my house and welcome everyone with this porch welcome sign. Today I’m sharing the SVG file to make this sign in addition to MORE porch SVG files from some of my amazing and talented designer friends.

HOW TO MAKE A DIY PORCH SIGN
- Grab the porch sign SVG file. The SVG file is located in the resource library which is available to my email subscribers.
- Cut out the SVG file onto adhesive vinyl. If you want your design to look like mine, you’ll need to cut multiple colors of vinyl. You can increase or decrease the size of it but be sure to size it so it will fit your piece of wood.
- Weed the excess vinyl from your design.
- Line up the vinyl pieces on to one piece of transfer tape using this method to layer vinyl
- Paint your wooden sign. This is an optional step. Make sure to use outdoor paint so that your sign will not chip or peel in the elements. Let the paint dry thoroughly before moving on to the next step.
- Line up the vinyl with your sign and apply the vinyl to the sign with the transfer tape.
- Burnish the vinyl onto the wood sign using a flat edge such as a credit card.
- Remove the transfer tape.
- Seal the sign with a waterproof sealer. This is not necessary but will add an additional layer of protection especially if your sign isn’t under a covered area.
HOW TO USE THIS SVG FILE AS A STENCIL
Did you know that you can also use this SVG file as a stencil to make a porch sign? Follow the first three steps above but instead of weeding out the negative space, you’re going to weed away the opposite pieces. For a more detailed description on how to use an SVG file as a stencil, check out this post.

SVG FILE FAQs
How do I open these files in my Silhouette software? First, save the file to your computer. If it is a zip file, unzip it. Next, open your Silhouette software and choose FILE>OPEN and navigate to where you saved the file. You can also import the file(s) to your Silhouette library by choosing FILE>LIBRARY>IMPORT TO LIBRARY and navigating to where you saved the file.
Can I open SVG files in the Silhouette Basic Edition? No. You must have Silhouette Designer Edition to open SVG files. If you have Silhouette Basic Edition, you can only use STUDIO files. STUDIO files are specific to Silhouette. You can also use PNG files with Silhouette Basic Edition but you’ll have to first convert the PNG to a cut file.
Can this file be used with a Cricut? Yes. Any SVG file can be used in Cricut Design Space.
How do I cut out this SVG using multiple colors? If you would like to use multiple colors of vinyl, you can cut by color in the Silhouette software. Cutting by color allows you to cut each color separately and layer the pieces on the final project.
