Last month, our Creative Design Team was showing you multiple ways to love your stash. This month, we took a little break from the everyday posts to bring you some projects you can create for Easter. If you haven’t heard about our Creative Design Team, you learn more about us here.
The women on our team did an amazing job this past week! We had shaker egg cards, and a pop-up card, scrapbook layouts, and easy-to-make last-minute cards. Today, I am ending the collab with a home décor project that you can make with your Cricut.
Please don’t feel overwhelmed by this creation – it is not as difficult as it looks. In my video, I share a few ways you can add pizzazz to your Cricut cuts, but you are more than welcome to skip those parts of the project.
As you may know, I love adding lots of detail to my designs. The flowers I cut from the Daisy Meadows collection are designed to assemble flat or with a little dimension using foam tape.
I chose to go a few steps further. Not only did I cut the images from pattern paper and glitter cardstock, but I also added some beads in the center and cut a stamen using a flower thin cut die. As I said, feel free to skip this step. I am a very detail-oriented person. When I create flowers for home décor pieces, I like to make them bold, whimsical, and full of dimension.
In my video, I also share a few tips and tricks in Design Space. You will learn how I like to use templates and color sync. I also walk you through this entire project from start to finish. You will create it in Design Space with me, assemble all the pieces, and put the cloche together.
All of the Cricut cut items are placed on the base of a cloche around a flower foam square. I chose a cloche with a metal base. It matches the décor in my home and the patterns in the Daisy Meadows collection. I found the bell-shaped cloche stands at Michaels craft store, but I have also seen a few on Amazon you can purchase. I put links below in my supply list to both of these.
So.. here is a little tidbit of history for you. Do you know where the term cloche came from or what they are designed for?
Knowing where something comes from or where it originated always fascinates me. As a gardener, I have seen a cloche used, but they are usually made of plastic. I didn’t realize that the glass bells we use in home décor are popular mini-greenhouses.
Alright, so now that you have gotten your history lesson for the week, let’s take a look at the crafting tutorial.
How much fun was that?! Home Décor is one of my favorite paper crafts to make – it is where I started as a Maker and where my heart will always be.
I especially love teaching others how to make creations for their home. I hope this project inspired you to try a few new things in Cricut Design Space and make something for your home this Easter.
