Fun fall home decor projects to do this season

Fun Fall Home Décor Projects to Make Now

September 1st, 2017 • Contributor: Cori George from Hey, Let's Make Stuff

Hey, everyone! Cori from Hey, Let’s Make Stuff, back with another fun post for you here on the Cricut blog!

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year, so I’m sitting here willing the weather to cool down a bit so it will finally feel like we’re moving into the cooler months. I’m so ready to break out my sweaters and boots and start decorating with pumpkins and leaves.

It’s 109 today, so it’s clearly not working. Please send lemonade.

In the meantime, I’m getting into the fall spirit by rounding up some fun fall décor projects you can make with your Cricut! Even if it’s still summer outside, there are no rules saying the inside of your house can’t be ready for fall!

Hello Fall Cut Files

Let’s start by saying welcome to the coming season with this adorable Hello Fall cut file from Kimber Dawn + Co!

Use your Cricut to make a stencil and re-create this farmhouse pumpkin bucket from A Night Owl Blog! This would be so cute on a rustic porch.

  1. i just got a new cricut air 2 and im not doing very well at figuring things out so im going to a friends house tomorrow for a lesson. I hope to be sharing alot of projects soon.

    • I am with you Sherri and Joann….I have been watching tutorials and reading as much as possible. I really want to work with vinyl. I’m excited to try monogramming items. I just purchased a big pack of vinyl in all different colors and am looking forward to getting started. Have you worked with vinyl yet? Any tips??

  3. I Just got a new cricut explore air 2 and I have no clue on to make all these cool designs. I got it because I want to start making things to make extra cash and I’m lost on how to make shirts an get things on Mugs an Just could use some help. I’m looking at the blogs an I see all these neat crafty ideas an I tried but I just cant get it right. LOL!!!
    Thank you please get back asap

    • Start simple 🙂 You’d want to practice at least a little first anyways before you jump into selling to make sure you know how to deliver a quality project. Start with one word or one image and practice using it with iron-on on shirts, using transfer tape to move vinyl to objects, etc. There are also many Cricut inspired Facebook groups where people share ideas of what they make to sell.

  4. When making the Fall luminaries, be careful what paint you choose. I use a FolkArt chalk paint and that works well, but the Waverly brand takes the paint around the vinyl off when you pull.

    • Thank you Michelle, I was just thinking about making one of those and was wondering if the paint would pull when removing the vinyl. Thank you for your suggestion!

  5. Hi,

    I’ve been using cricut machines back to when they used cartridges and didn’t have design space. It takes a lil practice but you will get it. There’s lots of help on youtube and on cricut website to help you out. I learned on my own… .Good luck girls!!!

    • Melanie, I am just like you! I’ve had my Cricut Air for 2+ years & it’s still in the box because I’ve TRIED but it’s VERY overwhelming! I do not want to sell it like my husband has suggested 100 of times, I want to make beautiful things! There are no classes near me or friends who have a Cricut. Just SAD!!! Good luck, hope you have a better time figuring this all out than me.

  6. Im like these other ladies. This has been a hard go for me. I want to jump on and just be able to do. I had an expression 2. The screen died on it and theres no repair. So finally decided on expore air 2 because I was told it would cut fabric .and now I would love to have a group to work with or classes. Suggestions?

  7. I purchased the Cricut Maker about a year ago. This I’d my first Cricut. I jumped right in making small vinyl monograms for all of my yeti cups. I’ve found this to be a easier way to learn my machine. I did purchase svg files of the different monogram fonts I was interested in. I also purchased the Cricut Basic Tool Set. The weeder, tweezers, and scraper are my best friends. Just keep working with it and it will become easier.
