Hey everyone! This is Lindi, from Love Create Celebrate. On my home and DIY blog, I share a ton of amazing home décor projects, usually with a rustic or industrial flare to them. As soon as Cricut came out with their Faux Woodgrain Leather, I KNEW I had to try it! I’m excited to share this project with you, as well as some creative glue ideas for all of your Cricut materials!
Start by grabbing your faux wood grain leather. I used the light tan colored sheet and the black sheet, because I really wanted the tan to pop.
Next, you need something to act as a background for your sign. I used a sheet of plywood, but a piece of hardboard from the dollar store would work too! Just something stiff enough to stay up straight.
Now the big question! What do you use to glue faux woodgrain leather?! If you’re thinking glue gun… think twice! Glue guns leave a TON of strings and they tend to dry quickly, in clumps. We want this beautiful piece to dry flat. Instead of a glue gun, I reached for my 3-in-1 Craft Glue. It’s not hot, and you can place the thin faux leather pieces down without any lumps. Just press on the leather to flatten the glue underneath. This glue is also very forgiving, allowing you to move the piece around a bit before you leave it alone, yet it still dries quickly – win, win, WIN!
