My New Favorite DIY Home Project Tool

About 6 months ago when my mom, of Early Bird Designs, was pitching her ceramics line with Etsy Wholesale, we were invited to a partnering event with HGTV.

Being the DIY-aficionados that we are, we were thrilled to see a Cricut demo booth at the event and jumped into the DIY activity being presented. The team was showcasing the iron-on decals that the Cricut can print to then be used to create professional screen printed designs on fabric. Once I saw this technique, my mind immediately jumped to different fabric and printing ideas; it could be simple to design and print my own unique fabric patterns.

A Cricut is any DIY maven’s dream tool. It is a small scale precision cutting and printing machine. It can cut and print on over 100 different types of materials - something as simple as cardstock for intricate card making to vinyl for decal creation, even leather!

Most people seem to associate Cricut with scrapbooking, but it has evolved to be a tool that makes it easy to customize home decor projects.

I’ve been brainstorming projects - and I’m excited to share my first examples soon! In the meantime, I’ve been busy pinning some ideas - anyone have tips/recommendations to share?
