10 November 2020

We often say that the possibilities are endless when you own a Cricut machine as there are so many different types of projects you can create. In this round up of 10 things you didn’t know you could make with a Cricut, there are a few more ideas that might surprise you!

1. Doormats

Welcome visitors to your home with an extra personal greeting by creating your own doormat. Simply cut a stencil from stencil or removable vinyl and use it to paint a long-lasting doormat that will wow your guests and the postman!

2. Doll house furniture

To create miniature versions of your furniture there is no better tool than the Cricut maker! Emily (better know on Instagram as Make.e) has been creating a gorgeous dolls house with her Cricut Maker, we want to move in!

3. Body art stencils

Body artist Cat Finlayson cuts stencils on her Cricut machines to create intricate body art! Cat uses the stencils to add paint to a model’s body in intricate custom patterns. This technique would work great at home for children’s glitter tattoos and face paint too! Cat explains how she creates her stencils in her blog post here.

4. Engraved jewellery

Add an even more personal touch to a keepsake gift by engraving a name onto a charm before gifting it to a loved one. This thoughtful touch is made possible by the engraving tool on the Cricut Maker.

5. Cut and sew a backpack

The rotary blade on the Cricut Maker takes the faff out of pattern cutting and marking. You can cut out all of the pieces for your own classy backpack on your machine, then sew them together to create a backpack to carry all of your things around in!
