It’s no secret around here that one of my favorite, most-used, and most reliable tools in my craft room is my Cricut machine. Not only do I use it for a variety of paper and party crafts, but I heavily rely on it to make inexpensive, easy, and quality decor, labels, and accessories for our home. In fact, my Cricut is one of the main ways I am able to decorate our homes so quickly and cheaply move after move after move! Today, I want to show you 30 (PLUS!) home decor projects you can make with a Cricut. Get ready to use your machine in ways you never thought of before!

Wall Decor Projects You Can Make with a Cricut

One of my favorite ways to update our homes is to add vinyl decals to our walls. From dots and dashes, to animals and phrases, they are a quick, easy and completely removable solution! BUT…vinyl decals can also be expensive when bought from a shop or retailer, especially if you have a big wall to fill. When you can cut your own, you can dramatically change your room for the simple cost of a roll of vinyl or contact paper! Here are 5 of my favorite wall decor updates!

We are not yet in a place where we can invest in quality, statement artwork.

Stencils Projects You Can Make with a Cricut

I love being able to cut paper or vinyl into pretty much any shape for any surface; but sometimes, it’s better to paint on a label or decorative feature. Being able to cut any shape from freezer, stencil or adhesive papers allows me to make my own stencils for a variety of projects! While making and using stencils certainly takes some practice, it’s pretty awesome to be able to add any image, in any shape, size and color to any project at any time!
