Looking to decorate your home on a budget? Create this pretty piece of Valentine’s Day Art, sponsored by Cricut, for $10 in less than 30 minutes.
I don’t know what got into me while moving, but I donated hundreds of thousands of items that I probably should have kept. In the course of my frenetic packing and trashing, I gave away ALL of my Valentine’s Day decor. Oops! Rather than dwell on my seeming lack of sanity, I am simply embracing it as an opportunity to “redecorate.”
My Cricut has been running non-stop as I’ve created Valentine’s Day items for around the house. I used it to make the garland on both my front door and mantel, my Cuddle Weather pillow and this fun Netflix and Chill pillow that’s been pinned a ton! This Valentine’s Wishes Art is just one more project I’ve been able to create in the last month using my machine.
Valentine’s Day Art
I created the Valentine’s Day Art file by manipulating script on my computer. To ensure I didn’t have a lot of piecing to do once the file was cut, I linked the words together to create one image.
I cut the image out from a piece of glittered cardstock using my Cricut. I love that I don’t have to have any special image files when using my machine. I used a simple jpg for this project. You can download the artwork for free and recreate a similar piece of your own.
I mounted the cut image onto a piece of black and white cardstock using sticky tabs to provide a little bit of dimension to this piece, before placing it in an Ikea frame that I used for my Halloween specimen art.
I love creating holiday art for the entryway. It’s such a fun touch and gets such a great response when people enter my home.
I’ve been using my Cricut so much, I’ve had a lot of questions about it and how it can be used. The machine is great for projects like this one, but it can also be used to create everything from cards to gifts and fashion and accessories. One of the reasons it’s so versatile is that it can be used to cut more than 100 different materials.
I know that there are several similar machines on the market. One of the things I love most about my Cricut is ease of use. I don’t have to pull out the blade to set the cut depth or anything else. I simply upload the projects set the materials dial and it’s ready to go! I love that.
