Whether you’re a child or an adult I’m sure you have a love for Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss quotes are amazing and inspirational, perfect as a fun quote for the kids playroom. I found a piece of wood lying around and thought it would be fun to give it a little bright paint, one of my favorite quotes and a silhouette of Dr. Seuss to complete my project. This was such an amazing project to do and the kids really loved the outcome. Enjoy.

Grab a piece of wood and take your favorite color paint and paint the entire top and sides. I did a total of 2 coats and allowed it to dry outdoors for about 1 hour before I proceeded to do the vinyl.
I already created one of my favorite quotes in a photo editing program so you can just upload my file into the Cricut design space. Once you are happy with the sizing you can send the image to the cut settings. Make sure your turn dial is set to vinyl and load your vinyl into the cutting machine. Follow the settings on the screen and once the cut is complete remove from your Cricut cutting machine.

Remove the vinyl from the cricut cutting machine and weed out the excess vinyl from the wording. Once the weeding is complete place a piece of clear transfer tape over the wording and apply to your design to the wood.
Apply a clear sealant to ensure the vinyl stays put for a long time. That’s it hang the wood pallet on the wall and enjoy the quote for years to come.
You can also just print out the printable quote and frame it, if you don’t have a vinyl cutter, which would be fun for celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday week.
