Stuck indoors? Imagine that, us too! We're working with our sponsor Cricut today to bring you a round up of the very best home crafts that you can make with a Cricut machine.
All of these require minimal time input and very few supplies, and they'll make a BIG impact on your space and organization!
A Leather Journal
I can't imagine a better way to pass the time than with this homemade journal. We're pretty sparse on supplies right now, but I realized I actually have everything I need to create this right in my craft supplies. If you're like me, you've probably grabbed a piece of leather at some point thinking you'll come up with a craft for it eventually. If not, you can totally do this with any fabric piece as well.
An oldie but a goodie from our own blog, these garden stakes are super simple. They just require an old set of silverware and some vinyl. Tada, you're ready to get your quarantine garden going! Definitely one of the best home crafts I can think of for prepping your family for being at home for the long haul.
If you're newer to Cricut and are kinda stressed about things like transferring or committing to using up a bunch of supplies, this door decal is for you. Cassie's thorough explanation walks you through every step of text layout, cutting and transfer. By they time you're done, your space will be perfectly spruced-up and you'll be a pro at the ins and outs of your Cricut machine.
A Baby Blanket
No need to panic if you don't have all the fancy-pants baby photo backdrops on-hand. You're bound to have the supplies for this handy baby milestone blanket. You just need some iron-on vinyl and a spare blanket! This is also one of a few fun home crafts that you can make now and gift later, or keep as a family heirloon.
Feeling not-quite-accessorized enough? These DIY Leather Earrings from Holly Grace are the hottest thing since sliced bread. Or toilet paper. Or sanitizer.
Nothing says, “I've been stuck at home and stressing out for more days than I can count” quite like an impeccably-organized desk. Print out these handy interior drawer decals to tell your stuff exactly where it's supposed to go.
Quiet Activity for Toddlers
Okay, this is the sweetest dang thing I have ever seen – and not just because my own toddler is currently driving me up a wall. With some simple felt and a few other supplies, this quiet activity for toddlers can keep those little hands busy for HOURS.
Funny Sayings Socks
Perfect for Netflix-ing on a rainy say, these funny sayings socks help add a sense of humor to the stuck-inside situation. Mine would probably say, “Read Books, Not Socks.”
Cat Litter Storage Container
Again with the beautification and organization around the house! My friend Dawn's kitty litter storage craft is way cuter than the sad, sad plastic tub that sits under my sink. I think I may make a whole array of these in the garage for all the animal necessities. A pail for goat hay, a bucket for chicken feed, a bin for dog food and a caddy for those puppy poop picker-upper baggies. Ahhhh, sweet sweet categorized orderly stuff always makes for the best home crafts.
When I saw these pantry labels on my pal Jen's site, I squealed with delight. “Ahh, I have those containers!” Nate promptly informed me that me and probably half of America have these containers because we're all basic and shop at that one major home goods store. Which means that these will probably be JUST as useful for you as they were for me! Pantry perfection, here we come.
Now that you have the very best home crafts to pick from, you can get your house all spruced up in all your downtime! If you don't yet have a Cricut, I highly recommend:
The Cricut Maker for extremely serious crafters looking to make projects that are large, have multiple layers, or use specialty materials such as crepe or balsa wood.
The Cricut Joy for on-the-go crafters looking to make small or narrow prints primarily using vinyl and cardstock for things such as small signs, wall quotes, cards and labels.
The Cricut Explore Air 2 for crafters wanting a happy medium of price and functionality, with a lightweight machine that offers a large cutting space and intricate ability but a slightly smaller material selection than what the heavy-duty Maker has to offer.
Cricut has released thousands of pieces of new, free digital content within Design Space to keep us all busy during the coming weeks. Now is the perfect time to hop in and try your hand at some home crafts with whatever machine you have!
