Fun Fall Cricut Home Decor
+ Infusible Ink GIVEAWAY!
Fun Fall Cricut Home Decor – some of my favorite home decor are projects I’ve made with my Cricut. I like that I can easily change it out and match it with the seasons, for holidays, and for special occasions. The fact that the cost is pretty minimal is also a huge plus and if you use some basics as the base for your decor you can save even more money.
Cricut Layered Sunflowers in a Mason Jar Sign
In today’s post, I’m sharing a simple bouquet of sunflowers, perfect for fall, in a mason jar as part of the Summer of Flowers Cricut Extravaganza! There is a wonderful giveaway and links to the other participants at the end of this post so be sure to check it out.
Cricut Vinyl Layering – The Basics
As often as I craft with my Cricut I’ve never made a layered project. This was my first time and it was actually quite easy. It’s all in the planning. Once I did all of my cuts, I arranged the pieces and then went in reverse as in, the top pieces would be the last to be added and so on.
The mason jar was the very bottom layer. I did use the draw and cut option for this (first time again!) and I should have used a different vinyl.
The marker smudged a bit and I had to be careful when placing it on the chalkboard so that I didn’t smudge it more. I used Oracal vinyl since I liked the color, and I already had it on hand but next time I’ll try Cricut Removable Matte and let you know if that worked better.
Add the sunflower stems next using the project in design space as your guide and the finished project above. Angle them slightly and take care that the stems stay within the lip space/rim of the mason jar.
Next, place the black flower base on top of the stems for the smallest flowers, then add the orange layer, topped by the yellow.
I wanted the largest flower to be the top layer so I did the two side, smaller, flowers first, completely, and then added the center flower, black base first, then orange, then yellow.
When the sunflower arrangement was completed, I added Welcome to the top of my chalkboard and called it a day!
