Do you love your Cricut machine but don’t have the time to craft with it? If that sounds like you (I know it’s me) check out the craft below. It took less than 30 minutes from start to finish and I love the way it turned out.

Merry Christmas Holiday Greeting on Front Door made with Cricut Hello and welcome to this month’s Craft and Create with Cricut Challenge.  I’m sharing something festive and fun with you that takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish and will add some curb appeal (removable at that) to your home.

If you want to make an impact and add some easy curb appeal to your home, especially for the holidays, the front door is a great place to start.

I did have a wreath hanging on the door but I still felt it was missing some pizazz and I wasn’t sure what to do about that until I remembered that I had a front door idea saved on my Cricut Love board on Pinterest (click the image for more inspiration!).

Supplies:

Cricut Design Space

Cricut Machine – I have the Air Explore

Red Vinyl (preferably outdoor vinyl)

Transfer medium – I use Peel and Stick

Craft Scissors – the ones with Teflon make cutting through the laminate super easy

Scraper – I’m fancy schmancy so I use an old Pampered Chef scraper but there is a Cricut scraper that would probably work a tad bit better!

Well, anyway, I opened my Cricut Design Space and began to create the “art” I wanted to use for my front door.  It’s easy to size this for your exact space.

Once I made my cut with the Cricut, I peeled off what wasn’t needed leaving only the letters, cut those into more manageable pieces, added the transfer medium and I was ready to head outside.

Some tips: Do not do this when the door has ice on it because the temperature is in the teens….the vinyl WILL NOT STICK and your hands will feel like ice cubes (firsthand experience).  Make sure the door is dry and the temperature is a little bit warmer.  I had much better success when the temp was in the high 20’s.

Cut as you go.  In other words, as you are scraping/attaching each letter, cut the peel and stick.  Otherwise, it may flip back down on what you’ve already attached.

All I was going to need was some red vinyl, a transfer medium, and something flat to smooth the vinyl onto my front door. 

It’s such an easy process, makes a nice impact, and I can easily remove it after the holidays! A total Cricut and Decorating Win!
