Ring in the holiday season with these 5 festive home décor ideas

November 10, 2022


It’s time to get into the holiday spirit! Whether you are looking to personalize your table for Thanksgiving, add winter wonderland charm to your mantle, or show off holiday cheer with the neighbors, you can do it with Cricut! Make them once and use them for occasions throughout the year, or give them to guests as a takeaway gift. The possibilities are endless! Here are a few home décor ideas to get you into the holiday spirit.

Magical table settings

Dress up your dining table with paper flowers that will live long past your dinner. The great thing about paper flowers is that they don’t require any water and you can save them for future occasions. 

Stay on trend using a metallic color palette to create these ready-to-make projects!  

  • Create metallic gems using Cricut Chipboard and showcase your newly made paper flowers inside.

Personalized place settings

Turn holiday place settings into an activity by letting guests decorate their own names and sharing what they are thankful for this year. This is a great activity for kids too! Simply swap out the names on these name cards to make your own! All you need is Cricut Cardstock and a fine-point pen.  

Holiday napkins

Spruce up old cloth napkins or paper napkins with Iron-On (or HTV). Some of our favorites are Everyday Iron-On and Foil Iron-On

Whether it is just to add little fall leaves or personalize each person’s name on a napkin, Cricut can be the perfect small touch for any special occasion, such as the holidays! Learn more about which material to use in each application through our Cricut Materials Cheatsheet

Wall décor for all seasons

Removable vinyl is a great way to dress up your walls during the holidays. It is removable for up to 2 years.

If you don’t have a fireplace but still want to hang up stockings, you can create one out of vinyl! You can even keep it up year-round to decorate for different holidays using a fun garland, or apply it to acetate that you can store and save to use year after year like we did. Try it out using this Vinyl Fireplace Community Project in Design Space! 

You can also bring the outdoors in by putting snowflakes on the wall or windows. Cricut Contributing Artist Elinorka has beautiful snowflake designs you can find in Design Space.  

Custom doormats for your porch

If you want to welcome someone into your home, a floor mat makes an impact from the moment they walk in the door.  

You can choose a punny phrase, something incorporating your family’s name, or make it for the season. See our How to Make Doormats with Cricut blog for a tutorial.
