There are a ton of cute wine signs lately and I decided to try my hand at one for a present for a friend. These are relatively easy to make and super cute! Who doesn’t like a sign to hang mugs and wine glasses? With a few basic tools you can make yourself an easy coffee and wine sign!
For this sign you just need two pieces of wood. One larger piece of plywood cut to the size you want your sign. Then a small piece that the wine glasses will hang off of.
Other Materials for Coffee and Wine Sign
- Chalk Paint – I used Sheepskin Chalk Paint found here
- Drill and drill bits
- 2 pieces of wood mentioned above
- Cricut and vinyl for wording – found here
- Transfer paper – I use this one
- Hooks for mugs
Once you have the wood piece the size you want, you can either paint it or stain it the color that you want the words. I stained the wood first and then I painted it a maroon color. I stained it because when I distress it I wanted the darker color to show through. Apply stain with a foam brush, wait a minute or two, and then wipe off extra stain.
I designed the saying in Cricut Design Space with Samantha font and AR Julian for AM and PM. I cut out vinyl (Oracal 631) with my Cricut. Weed the vinyl and then apply transfer tape. Tape it down with painter’s tape and use hinge method to apply. For more detailed instructions on applying vinyl, check out my tutorials here and here!
You’re done with that part of the coffee and wine sign! So for the small part of wood, I set two wine glasses on it and traced the bottoms so I knew where to drill holes and to see how long I wanted it.
Cut off the end with a miter saw or jig saw. This is mine that I love!
To make sure the holes are even, I used my carpenter’s square and drilled two pilot holes.
Then you need a big drill bit. I didn’t have a big enough one so I used the biggest one I had and then kind of twirled the bit around to make the holes bigger. I have since gotten a large drill bit set, so it will be much easier next time!
Then I drew two lines from edge of wood to hole and cut it with my jigsaw. I had a really old jigsaw but for Christmas I got a bunch of new tools and I love my new cordless jigsaw!
Thanks for checking out my tutorial! Have a great day!
