Snowman Cricut Projects

 Snowman Cricut Projects

I purchased a Cricut Maker and Cricut Joy  two years ago and have only used it a few times to decorate tee shirts.

One of my 2023 goals is to get better acquainted with my Cricut machines, and start making items to give as gifts or sell at our local craft fair.

Keeping in line with the winter theme from my last post, I made two projects using my Cricut machines.

Snowman Wreath

I saw this wreath on Pinterest, and was inspired to create something similar adding my own spin!

I didn’t have a 12 inch wreath on hand so I pulled out a piece of cardboard - a USPS priority box was perfect and cut out a 12 inch circle. I used a dinner plate to cut out the inner circle and voila a 12 inch wreath form!

Using a fabric strip measuring 2 x 42 inches, I wrapped the cardboard wreath to dress it up a bit.

I laid out six 4 inch unfinished wood circles from my craft stash on the wreath to figure out placement for the snowman faces.

I decided to swap out the bottom wood round and use a welcome wood word cut-out instead.

Once I was happy with the arrangement, I painted each of the wood pieces using Waverly’s Snow White Chalk Paint. Once the chalk paint was dry, I dry-brushed a layer silver metallic paint on each of the wood circles. I wanted the faces to have a rustic glittery look.

I selected and cut out five (5) really cute snowman faces from the Cricut Design Space software using a Heat Transferred Vinyl (HTV/Iron On Vinyl). I used my Cricut mini easy press iron to adhere the vinyl onto the wood circles.

Below is my January welcome wreath!

Inspiration for my second project came from this picture of a yard sign created by

We retired to Florida a few years ago to get away from snowy winters!

I’m thinking this is what a snowman would look like here in Central Florida !
