Does Cricut vinyl stick to wood?
Yes, Cricut vinyl will stick to stained wood but there is one tip that may make your project a bit easier. Stain can leave an oily residue that will make your vinyl lift from the surface. Seal with a waterbased Polycrylic then wait 24 hours. Your vinyl will stick better and stay on longer!

Why is my vinyl not sticking to wood?
Still having trouble? If your vinyl is still not sticking to your freshly smoothed piece of wood, adding a layer of paint or varnish will also help it stick. Sometimes wood just has too many loose splinters, dust residue, or nature elements that can stick to your vinyl instead.
Does permanent vinyl stick to wood?
Vinyl should stick decently to unfinished wood, but if you sand and coat it with either paint or a clear coat, it will adhere much easier. As you can see, it’s going to have a little bit harder time sticking to the undercoated, unpainted wood, but you can get it to stick down.
Where can I buy wood for Cricut projects?
I’ve had a few requests emailed to me about where to buy wood for Silhouette or Cricut crafting projects. The answer is easy: Buy wood at your local home improvement center (Lowe’s or Home Depot are my favorites) or lumbar yard.
Does the Cricut maker cut wood?
You can cut either wood on the Cricut Maker machine. Whichever you choose, just make sure it doesn’t have any knots. If a piece as a knot, make sure the knife blade will not have to go through the knot when cutting your pattern. Obviously, since it’s Cricut-brand basswood, you’ll probably get the best results using it.
