Stuck at home? We’re sharing 12 Cricut craft projects that use supplies that you already have at home including vinyl, htv, cardstock, Infusible Ink & felt!
Hey crafty friends! How are you all holding up during this crazy time? I hope that you and your family are happy, healthy and safe. As scary as what is going on in the world right now is, I’ve been taking this time to enjoy quality time with my family and to let people in our “village” (both near and far) know that we are thinking about them.
It will come as no surprise that we’ve been doing quite a few crafts around here. We’ve been making a point of being creative and using what we have on hand. My youngest has found my stash of polymer clay and has been making statues of his favorite super heroes. My oldest has been spending a lot of time drawing and writing in her journal. Together we have been digging through my stash of paper and vinyl and creating cards using my Cricut that we leave taped to our neighbors’ doors letting them know that people are thinking about them and that they aren’t alone.
I’ll be sharing the cut file and instructions for this easy craft in the next week or so (I’m working on a Cricut card blog hop with some of my very talented blogger friends).
Since Cricut crafting is pretty much my favorite thing ever, this time social isolating has my Cricut working overtime! I’ve been cutting so many fun projects with it. I’m guessing that you all are looking for fun things to do using supplies you have on hand, so today I though I’d share with you some of my favorite projects from Cricut bloggers that use supplies that you probably have at home! Ready to get started? Read on!
12 Cricut Craft Projects That Use Supplies You Already Have At Home
I’ve heard from so many friends that they are spending this time at home organize, cleaning and updating their homes. This DIY watercolor mixer decal from Christina at DIY Mommy uses printable vinyl and is a great way to give your kitchen a new pop of life!
Organize your pantry and spice drawer by creating your own spice jar and pantry essential labels using printable vinyl! Angie at Country Chic Cottage shows you how to make them using your Cricut and printable vinyl here or with your Cricut Joy, Smart Labels and Cricut pens here.
Did you know that you can apply iron-on to stuffed animals? Sydney from Tastefully Frugal shows you how in Birth Announcement Stuffed Animal tutorial. I think this idea would also be super cute for making cuddle critters! Put a quote on the stuffed animal or something as simple as “Hug Me” to give your kids something to snuggle with when their anxiety is feeling high.
Make yourself a shirt that you can wear on repeat during social isolation like this one from Christina at DIY Mommy! It’s adorable and can be made in minutes! Find Christina’s video about making it here.
Now is a great time to organize your drawers, and if you’ve got vinyl and transfer tape then this project is for you! Lela from Organized*ish shares how to turn a messy junk drawer into the organized drawer of your dreams in this Desk Drawer Organizers tutorial.
Now is the perfect time to work on some home decor projects, including decorating your front door! I love this cute little quote that Cassie from Cassie Bustamante created using her Cricut. Get all the details on how to make your own front door decal here.
We bake a lot as a family at my house. Baking following a recipe is a great way to get kids learning without realizing that’s what they are doing! Following a recipe can help kids with concepts that have to do with math, reading and science! Add an art lesson to your baking time by making some adorable cupcake toppers like these ones from Julia at The Quiet Grove that use Cricut’s Print and Cut function.
Let friends and family know that you are thinking about them and that you like them a whole heck of a lot by sending them a handmade card like this one that I made! All you need is cardstock, some glue and a pen. You can even make the envelope! Find the cut file and instructions here.
I love this felt toddler busy book page from my friend Angie at Country Chic Cottage! It’s the cutest thing ever, easy to make and will keep little ones occupied feeding fish to the big blue whale! Find out how to make it here.
There is a pretty good chance that we might still be in social isolation when Easter rolls around, so that means a DIY Easter may be in order. Vanessa over at Tried and True Creative makes that easy with these adorable DIY Easter Baskets made using felt and iron-on. Find the tutorial for making them here.
Is anyone else having a hard time remembering what day of the week it is during social isolation? I can tell you one day of the week that I never forget– Taco Tuesday! If you have a set of Infusible Ink Pens, some Infusible Ink blanks and some laser copy paper you can make a ton of fun Taco Tuesday gear like these taco Infusible Ink coasters from Allison from All For The Memories.
Use your Cricut and the pen attachment to create DIY coloring sheet that your kids can color in using Infusible Ink markers and transfer to a shirt using this easy tutorial from me! You can also let your kids draw on a piece of laser copy paper using Infusible Ink pens and transfer it to a shirt, coasters or tote bag using the same instructions.
