Birthday Fun With Vinyl

So, today is my brother's birthday. I always struggle with what to get/make for him, but not this year! Back story: At a cookout at my brother's house this past summer, he and my 7 year old son were dancing outside of his chicken coop singing (to the tune of the theme song for "Water Country"), "Chicken Country, Chicken Country, Chicken Country ... Lay some eggs!" Thus, the sign for his coop!

I got the fantastic shabby chic frame off of Knowing that this sign would go outdoors, I got some gloss outdoor vinyl from All the cuts came from the Silhouette Online Store. I used Cricut transfer tape to line up each layer and that was it! It was so easy to do and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Hopefully, my brother (and the chickens) will like it, too!

Have a fantastic day!
