  1. Hi Saw your video, and just received my cricut. What kind of shelf liner do you get, how does it stick to the wood. Sorry new crafter here

    1. thanks! just regular shelf liner like from walmart. it’s sticky on the back when you peel off the backing paper. … but make sure when you cut it that you still have the backing paper on

  2. Is the stencil available?

    1. the pumpkin is from the silhouette store – search pumpkin in the search bar and it will come up 🙂

  3. Can you share what fonts you used? thanks!

  4. Your colors look so vibrant. I stained the wood (a darker color like yours) and have used 3 coats of orange acrylic paint and it is so dull and cannot really be seen from more than a few feet away. Any tips or ideas to get it to show up better?

    1. Hi Kylie, I’m sorry you’re having this issue, I know how frustrating this can be, especially because who likes to go back and do projects a 2nd time! (not me, haha!)

      Some suggestions: 1. Before applying your orange paint, paint a different color first, like white (think like a primer). 2. Make sure that you are using a good quality acrylic paint. 3. If you’re willing to give chalk paint a try, I totally recommend Dixie Belle chalk mineral paint! It has amazing coverage and just a teeny, tiny bit will go a loooong way! here’s a link to one of the several oranges they have https://bit.ly/2kTI6DF

      Good luck!
