Christmas is coming up fast and we’re still putting the finishing touches on the big day! We have a few pieces left of our wood cutouts after our last boutique and decided to turn them into signs. We had one joy left and were anxious to apply some pretty holiday paper to the top of it to dress it up. With the help of Fiskars, I was able to easily outline my wood cutout from this gorgeous, thin wallpaper. I love how it turned out!

We love the new Easy Change Detail Knife because it makes switching between cutting tasks simple. The easy blade change lock lets you switch blades in seconds and it’s compatible with standard blades including #10, #11, #16 and #17! It also comes with a safety cap that protects the blades (and yourself!) when you’re not using the tool.

To make your own diy wood cutout, you’ll need wood, a cutout phrase, a roll of paper, furring strips, acrylic paint, braid nailers + nails or wood glue and a Fiskars Easy Change Detail Knife. Start by cutting your wood to size. Our joy letters are a whopping 18″ x 26″ so our sign is pretty large!

Flip your wood cutout upside down and place it on the backside of the paper. Trace around it with a pencil.

Gently trace the pencil outline with your Fiskars Easy Change Detail Knife. It slices like butter. So smooth. This new tool is ideal for precisely cutting a wide variety of materials including paper, cardstock, canvas and more. No tearing or fraying!

Attach the painted furring strips to the sign with wood glue or brad nails. Our favorite nailer is cordless and a breeze to handle. We hung it in my dining room with a sawtooth hanger.
