Step 1:
Using your Cricut (or Silhouette) cut your text out of permanent vinyl. I tried to make the letters about 1.5 inches tall. The longer phrases I made the letters short so you could read the entire text from the front of the ornamentRae Dunn style words
Step 2:
Weed the vinyl. I love this “probe set” (I hate that name.. but basically they are dental picks) from Harbor Freight for my weeding. Weeding vinyl lettering for rae dunn ornaments
Step 3:
Using a scraper or even a spatula works, cover your text with a small piece of transfer tape or contact paper (I try to make it as small as possible, since it will be easier to apply if there is less overhang.

Step 5:
