Mailbox Makeover: FREE Silhouette Cut File

Mailbox Makeover: FREE Silhouette Cut File

This mailbox makeover has been a long time coming! We’ve somehow managed to renovate almost every square inch of our property while still overlooking our shabby mailbox. And when I say shabby… I mean  SHABBY!

It was shabby in the sense that the door tab was completely gone.

Shabby, like the door would hardly open… yet when it stormed it would blow wide-open!

Shabby, like you had to rig up the flag just right to mail something out…

Shabby, like the numbers were long gone…

And even so shabby I got an earful from a disgruntled FedEx man one day. He was lost and my mailbox was no help! He was a bit of a “city boy” and hasn’t been back on my route ever since. Haha! 

So it was time for a makeover. It had finally come time to pull this baby off the back-burner!

Since our shabby mailbox was long past saving, we bought a new, black mailbox. We spray painted the existing mount and pole and I got to work on some custom Silhouette artwork for the sides.

I designed and cut the vinyl artwork using my Silhouette Cameo. 

I love making my own designs on that software! It’s so easy and the options are endless! You can download this FREE Silhouette Cut File template from the link below.

I cut everything out and carefully transferred it to the outside of the mailbox. NOTE: I did all of the transferring before mounting the mailbox! Much easier!

I love how the custom monogram turned out! I feel like it fits our farmhouse style just right!

We even check the mail in our muck boots! 😉
