Fall Rustic/Farmhouse Ideas with Cricut Stencil

 Hello there and happy Thursday!

Today I am sharing three fall projects I recently completed using my Cricut cutting machines.

Farmhouse Fall Wood Sign

The next technique on my list to try was making stencils.  My go to source for all things Cricut is Jennifer Maker.  She offers both video and written tutorials.  I really appreciate her step by step teaching style.

Repurposing an old 10 x 20 wood frame and foam board I was able to make this simple wood sign. I found the welcome fall design on the Cricut Design Space software. It is free if you have a membership account. I used Cricut brand removable vinyl and acrylic paint to create the stencil.

Rustic Wood Coasters

I made this set of 6 gorgeous rustic wood coasters using stencils I created with my Cricut Joy.

I was able to shop my craft stash for the supplies I used. While visiting my son's family in Indiana I grabbed lots of fallen tree branches for crafting, they were perfect for this project. 

 I used Cricut brand premium vinyl and chalk paint to create the stencils. The designs also came from Cricut Design Space. Once the coasters were finished I did seal them and added cork rounds on the back for additional furniture protection.

I'm so in love with how these coasters turned out! I stained and decorated a Dollar Tree mini crate to serve as a holder for the coasters.

I'm hoping to make personalized wood trays as presents for the kids this year and had to practice by making one for myself!

During Amazon Prime I purchased a couple of reclaimed 12 piece wood bundles. Each plank in the bundle measures 3.5 x 12 inches, and I used 5 planks to make one tray.

I glued three planks together using Gorilla Ultimate Waterproof glue to form the center panel. Trimmed two more planks down to form the side pieces and glued them to the center panel.

Once the glue was dry I drilled holes for the handles and stained the entire piece with Minwax Stain in Ebony.

I purchased the handles from Lowe's for $.97, they were originally black so I painted them with a metallic gold acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I screwed them into the tray.

Again I used a design from Cricut Design Space, since it was larger I had to use my Maker machine to cut it. This time I tried the Cricut brand stencil vinyl, the metallic gold acrylic paint and white chalk paint to create the stencil.

I love how the tray turned out and I made a few mini wooden pumpkins using Dollar Tree tumbling tower blocks to complement the tray.

  1. Hi Karla! I'm going to have to stop reading your blog if you keep on sharing squirrel projects. They are all so darn stinkin' cute. Thanks for the info about eRank. My Etsy listings are only rated a "C". I have work to do. HAHA! It's just the advice I need. I never would stand for "C" work when I was in school. I'm not going to start now! Enjoy the holiday weekend, my friend. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
