I’ve created a lot of crafts with my Cricut, but these are my TOP Cricut Maker Projects, and I’m sharing all the details so you can recreate these at home!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
It’s probably no surprise that my Cricut Maker is my go to.
Need teacher gifts? I can cut out a printable real quick.
Need some vinyl to dress up my craft space? My maker will do that in a fraction of the time I could do it by hand.
And let’s be honest…I’m never cutting out anything by hand again.
Yes, I’ve got lots of Cricut Maker Projects on this site, but today I’m sharing some of my favorites and your favorites!
Get started with the Cricut Maker
Before we get started with projects, take a look at these incredibly helpful Cricut Maker posts:
And if you don’t have a Maker already, Grab one from the Cricut Store.
Remember, most of these products can ONLY be made with the Maker. If you have another machine, check your materials list to see how you can modify these.
My Top Cricut Maker Projects
Cricut Knife Blade Cake Topper
Add some texture and dimension to your party decor with this Cricut Knife Blade tutorial.
This tutorial really shows how diverse the Cricut Maker can be. I used print and cut, cut out glitter paper, and chipboard…all using one machine! I just think that’s amazing.
How to Make Felt Roses with the Cricut Maker
The number one thing that sold me on the Cricut Maker was the rotary blade for fabric. I tried it out at the Cricut Make-a-thon and it cuts felt like BUTTER. These roses are so incredibly intricate, and the Maker cut them out, no problem.
This is a project that wouldn’t even be possible without my Maker. I HATE cutting felt by hand – you have to have super sharp scissors and there’s no way you can get it this precise.
I also made some mini Christmas wreaths with the same technique.
Make a toy car with the Cricut Scoring Wheel
This toy car was a big hit with my little guy, and the Cricut Scoring wheel made it SO easy.
I’ve worked with the scoring stylus and the scoring wheel. Both are really handy, but the scoring wheel is much more precise and can score deeper marks so items are easier to fold.
Chipboard Photo Props
Yes…these are for Halloween, but you can create these chipboard photo props for any occasion with images from Cricut Design Space. The great thing about these is that they are really sturdy and you don’t have them flopping around…so the pictures turned out SO GOOD.
Create a Simple Sewing Pattern with the Cricut Maker
Can ya tell I like Halloween? This tutorial shows you how you can use the Cricut Washable Fabric Pen and the rotary cutter to create very simple patterns. I rarely sew, but even I can do this!
DIY Unicorn Confetti
I had to include this tutorial just so you can see what this baby can do. See those TEEEEEENY TINY flowers on the Unicorn? Now see it next to that quarter? Yeah, I was amazed, too.
I kept trying out different sizes. I started out with larger confetti, then I went smaller and smaller.
This kind of detail works best with the Cricut Party Foil. I included some glitter card stock in my confetti, but the unicorn and text was best cut out with the foil.
You guys liked this tutorial so much, I made another one for Mermaid Confetti.
3 in 1 Holiday Wreath
Have you ever left up a wreath through way too many seasons. I mean, who wants to change it out for Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving?
Well, the Cricut Maker made that easier for you. Just create some bass wood signs to hang on your wreath and you’re covered.
You could also create some spring holiday wreaths with this technique!
Mermaid Tote Bag Tutorial
Out of every Cricut craft I have done, this is by far my favorite.
It’s also the one craft I’ve made that gets used. My daughter LOVES this tote bag and uses it for the pool and soccer practice.
It also helps that it’s really durable since I used Cricut Infusible Ink. It can be washed over and over and the ink will still be vibrant and colorful.
