How to DIY Your Own Shabby Chic Party Decor
A Giant Cricut Rose
I have been wanting to make a Giant Cricut Rose for a long time and this was the perfect reason to make one. It turned out even prettier than I thought and I'm planning on making a few more. I'm not sure why, but they are so pretty!
I used the Llama Rose which is free in design space.
I didn't alter the rose at all but I did have a hard time figuring out how to assemble it so I will be making a video in case anyone else also has some questions about assembly.
Easily create impact and a focal point with a Giant Rose but be prepared, this one took 18 pieces of cardstock for one flower. I was able to salvage most of the paper to reuse for other projects, which is a great plus, but make sure you have enough on hand if you make one for yourself.
I placed the Giant Rose on top of my favorite cake stand from The Sweet Tooth Fairy and I added a pennant banner above it, also made with Cricut.
For my party decor, I made three banners and for each banner, I'll have a link to the project which you can access with a Cricut Access subscription.
This banner was simple to make with a scalloped background and the letters to spell MINGLE. You could change up the letters for any occasion using names or the occasion itself.
I used SCOTCH Double-Sided tape to adhere the letters to the scalloped discs.
Next, I punched a hole at the top of each disc and threaded Baker's Twine through the letters and then hung it from a vintage-looking chalkboard.
Doily banners are easy to make and quite literally look like doilies, which is a wonderful Shabby Chic decor staple. I saved a few of these doily discs to put under the small cake plate and the candy jars.
Print and Cut Disc Banner
Cut and print is the final banner option I chose and the ability to coordinate the printed portion of each disc really helped to nail down the final design.
I chose a different background for each disc, printed them out on cardstock following the prompts in Design Space, punched holes in the top, and threaded with Baker's Twine.
The final decor I made is on the smaller chalkboard.
Using a scrap of vintage book paper left from a book page printable I made last week. I set up the draw mode in Cricut and added a bee to the paper. I also had papers left from a card catalog project I worked on and used double-sided tape to add those to the board as well.
I used small lidded jars from Dollar Tree to hold some small pastel-colored candies and added one to a cupcake stand. I also added some pastel straws, faux roses, and a vintage scale to complete the Shabby Chic look.
