DIY COLOURFUL SNOWFLAKE WREATH

A Christmas wreath is the perfect staple piece of decoration to brighten up any door, especially when you use bright colours like in our DIY snowflake one! Today’s wreath is SO easy to make but since the snowflakes are made out of colourful cardstock we recommend this be an indoor wreath (trust us, it looks just as cute on the inside PLUS that means you get to see it every time you walk past the front door!)

YOU WILL NEED:

A Cricut Explore // Polystyrene wreath // Craft paint in the colour of your choice (I went for pastel pink // A paintbrush // Colourful card // A glue gun //

STEP 1:

Paint your wreath in a colour that matches one of your cardstock colours, so that when there are gaps in the snowflakes showing through you’ll see colour instead of white polystyrene. Allow to fully dry.

STEP 2:

Open up the Cricut design space and under the image section, search ‘snowflake’ (this will give you over 580 results since the design space is THAT GOOD for images but just pick a simple one for this project.

Calling all jingle ladies! Here we go guys, Christmas DIYs start right here and I couldn’t be more excited about it! We’re kicking things off with these funny pun slogan glasses because we all love a good pun don’t we?! These are so easy to make, we’re even stocking the stickers in our shop if you’d prefer to just buy them instead of making them (we love making Christmas as easy and fun as possible!) so let’s get started shall we? Time to get SPROUT of control with the Christmas DIYs….(paha sorry couldn’t resist!)

YOU WILL NEED:

Glassware of your choice // Gold vinyl* // /Cricut Machine // Transfer tape //

*If you don’t have a cutting machine or would prefer to just buy the vinyl stickers instead of cutting them out, then you can buy these Christmas Slogan pun stickers here and then skip straight to step 4!

STEP 1:

Open up the Cricut design space and using the font tool, type the quotes you want to cut out, the 10 slogans we went for are as follows:

-EVERYDAY I’M BRUSSELIN
-ALL THE JINGLE LADIES
-SLEIGH MY NAME SLEIGH MY NAME
-BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF
-HAPPY HOLLA DAYS
-UP TO SNOW GOOD
-SLEIGH WHAT?
-MINCE PIES BEFORE GUYS
-COS I SLEIGH
-SPROUT OF CONTROL

I then sized them all to 2 inches wide because that’s what would fit my glasses best, but size yours to whatever works for you.

DIY HALLOWEEN PUN PLATES

Halloween doesn’t just have to be about the parties, why not throw a Halloween themed dinner this year complete with scary themed treats, a spooky centrepiece and some slogan charger plates?! These are such an easy DIY to make and really add a little extra fun to your table decor, I mean who doesn’t love a good pun?!

Plastic Plates (we went with clear but colour would look cute too!) // White and Black Vinyl (Or vinyl letters) // Transfer tape // Cricut machine // A black sharpie //
