I know what you’re thinking…an ice bucket DIY in January? Has she gone nuts? Well let me tell you, no I have not. Cold drinks are required all year round and they’re even better when served in the prettiest ice bucket you’ve ever seen!

You can easily make this emoji heart ice bucket just in time for Valentines Day to make sure that you’re serving your drinks in style and the best news is it takes less than an hour to create!

YOU WILL NEED:

A pink ice bucket (or a normal ice bucket, I just spray painted this one with Rustoleum’s candy pink) // Dark pink vinyl // yellow vinyl // transfer tape // A cricut explore (or you can cut the stencil’s out free hand if you don’t have one, they just won’t be as perfect) // Emoji Heart Template 1 // Emoji Heart Template 2 //

STEP 1:

Upload the heart templates to the Cricut Design Space and resize to the size you want, I made my heart 2.2 inches wide to fit my ice bucket and then I adjusted the size of the yellow sparkles to match. You’ll then want to duplicate the shapes as many times as you require to cover your ice bucket. I ended up having 21 hearts in total.

STEP 2:

Start by placing your pink vinyl onto your sticky mat and load into the machine, set your Cricit to cut vinyl and hit that go button!

STEP 3:

Once your machine has finished cutting out all of the pink hearts, repeat step two with your yellow vinyl and allow it to cut out all of the sparkles.

Socks are such a staple at Christmas, I really don’t think that there has ever been a Christmas in my life when I didn’t receive socks as a present and I am totally ok with that! I love socks, especially the warm and cosy kind but most of all socks that look cute are the best! I feel like now, more than ever socks are becoming a really big thing in fashion (we’re looking at you Happy Socks!) and I thought it would be super fun to design a couple of pairs this year!

There are 2 different designs to make completely for free to help make your own! Whether you’re gifting them to friends, your bridesmaids or just to yourself there’s no denying that these socks are beyond cute! We have a cute cactus print or for something really simple and fun a gold polka design! It’s totally up to you what colour socks you go for but we decided on a shade of pink and a white pair for the gold polka dots. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own…

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain cotton socks //  Cactus design // An Iron // Gold glitter iron on // Green glitter iron on // A Cricut Explore //

FOR THE POLKA DOT SOCKS

diy-christmas-socks-polka-dot-gold-cactus-glitter-pink-make-your-own-tutorial-cricut-3

Simply create a circle shape in your Cricut design space (I sized the circles 1 inch in diameter)  and load in your gold iron on into the machine. Allow the machine to cut it out then peel away the negative space leaving only the polka dots. Heat up your iron and iron on the dots, varying the placement as you go, making sure that you cover the entire of the socks. Super simple!

MAKE THIS FUN SLOGAN CHRISTMAS JUMPER

Written by , Posted in Christmas, Cricut Explore, How To...

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a festive jumper am I right?! This year on Christmas day our family is holding a Christmas jumper competition and there’s going to be a prize for the best one! I literally have no idea what jumper to wear yet but I’m toying with making my own and I do love me a good pun! I’ve seen a few Christmas puns going around on different cards this year, SLEIGH MY NAME being one of my favourites but the best one yet has to be ‘ALL THE JINGLE LADIES’! SO brilliant, and it’s no secret that i’m obsessed with Beyonce (make sure you check out our Beyonce lyric glasses here!)

So, I thought I would iron on that particular Beyonce Christmas pun onto one of my old jumpers and I love how it turned out! The best news is you can grab the exact stencil I designed below and create the jumper yourself! Here’s how…

diy-slogan-graphic-christmas-jumper-diy-iron-on-all-the-jingle-ladies-cricut-pink-black-glitter-4

YOU WILL NEED:

A plain jumper // An iron // All the jingle ladies template, A Cricut Explore & black glitter iron on* OR Iron on letters in the colours of your choice //

diy-slogan-graphic-christmas-jumper-diy-iron-on-all-the-jingle-ladies-cricut-pink-black-glitter-5

STEP 1:

If you’re just using your own iron on letters for this then simply space them where you want them on the jumper and iron them on! If you’re using your Cricut machine however then upload the above template to your design space and set your Cricut to cut out in Iron on material. Make sure that you check mirror image at the time of cut so it doesn’t come out backwards!

With Halloween just around the corner (SAY WHAT?!) we thought it would be fun to create some ghost emoji couple mugs and I love how they turned out! They’re beyond easy to make and would also look fab at a Halloween shindig! Or you could just make them as a cute gift for your other half!

ghost-emoji-halloween-glasses-mugs-his-boo-her-boo-diy-decorations-cocktails-fall-modern-8

YOU WILL NEED:

White vinyl // Black vinyl // Pink vinyl // Mugs or glass ware // Cricut Explore* //

*You have two options here, you can use a Cricut Explore to cut out the ghost emoji and letters, or you can cut your vinyl out free hand and grab some vinyl letters if you don’t have a machine! If you’re going to be using the Cricut though, grab the templates here: Emoji body , emoji face , emoji tongue , his boo , her boo and upload them to the Cricut Design Space.

STEP 1:

Cut out your ghost emoji templates using whichever method you’re choosing, then place the white vinyl on first. Rub in place so that it adheres well to the mug.

STEP 2:

Next, add on the black vinyl of the ghosts face, again rubbing down hard onto the mug.
