30+ Home Decor Projects You Can Make With a Cricut
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 above all, 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. In other words, 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. For example, dots and dashes, and animals and phrases, 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. However, 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!
Artwork Projects You Can Make with a Cricut
We are not yet in a place where we can invest in quality, statement artwork. But with lots of big and bland walls in our rentals, I am ALWAYS looking for cheap, easy and impactful ways to create my own art. Ultimately, using a Cricut Explore allows me to get really clean, professional, and impactful results with minimal effort! Here are some of my favorites in recent years:
Typography Artwork Projects You Can Make with a Cricut
In addition to cutting out shapes and images, one of my all-time favorite ways to use my Cricut Explore is to make typography-style artwork. Anyone who has cut letters out of anything (paper, vinyl, fabric) knows how tedious and tough in can be! But being able to make clean and precise wording to me is worth the investment alone!
Home Decor Accessories Projects You Can Make with a Cricut
The die-cut machines available these days are now able to cut an array of materials. For instance, you can cut fabric to leather and everything in between. While I haven’t experimented with too many materials, I have been able to use my machine to embellish a variety of things around our home including pillows, vases, and furniture!
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. Furthermore, 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!
Labels You Can Make with a Cricut
Last but not least, most of you regular readers know that not only do I label almost everything in our home, but I most frequently make those labels with my Cricut Explore. From text labels to images, the software and the machine just make it TOO easy to quickly create and therefore add a label to (almost) any surface! Here are just a few of the labels I’ve made with my Cricut Explore!
