Create beautiful custom home decor with the Cricut Explore Air 2!

When you look at this bedroom photo, what do you see? I see a beautiful personalized space, full of DIY’d furniture and DIY home decor. Would you believe it if I told you that this bedroom had over 20 customized DIYs?! A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to travel down to the US, meet with four other amazing DIY bloggers, and put this room together. It was the BEST experience, and I’m gonna tell you all about it!

Did I ever tell you that my DIYing days started with scrapbooking? As a scrapbooker, I was drawn to the Cricut long before I even started a blog. At that time I was mostly making paper crafts, but as the Cricut evolved into the Cricut Explore Air™ 2, and I evolved in my creative skills, I started to see a LOT more potential in that little cutting machine.

This fabulous group of bloggers loves their Cricut Explore Air 2 to make DIY home decor!

So when I was given the opportunity to come down to the US to help create an entire, cohesive room, I jumped at the chance! Home Decor projects with the Cricut?! Yes please!

I met with Heidi from Idieh Design, Katie from the Crafty Blog Stalker, Heather from Whipperberry, and Jen from Jennifer Rizzo Designs. Four bloggers with four totally different styles – I know that I wasn’t the only one wondering if we could pull this room together! You can watch a video of us chatting about bringing our styles together HERE!

There are endless project ideas to use the Cricut Explore Air 2 for, you can make such gorgeous DIY home decor!

We were given absolutely beautiful furniture pieces from Hayneedle, which 100% jived with my Rustic Industrial side. But I’m not going to lie… needing to incorporate soft, floral, garden themed elements into the space was a BIG challenge for me and my Industrial Chic style.

BUT, I did it! And now my design dreams have come true and I have projects in the Cricut Design Space! Or you can check out all of the amazing projects on their Home Decor page!

I was assigned a dresser and an object on top, so I decorated a mirrored tray for on top of the dresser with some simple vinyl overlays!

See the whole Personalized Tray HERE.

I created this personalized tray with my new cricut explore air 2 and I absolutely love it

I wanted to add something subtle to the dresser, that stayed within the theme I was given, and used the images I was asked to incorporate, so I decided to add some beautiful vines to the bottom drawers of this dresser, as though they were growing from the ground. I love the look of the Metallic Foil against the wood (I can’t wait to do another project with that Metallic Foil!). The Transfer Tape made this project SO easy too!

This faux metallic inlay was made with a Cricut Explore Air 2 machine!

I was also in charge of making a couple of gallery wall pieces. So I kept the floral momentum going with this lovely vinyl Heart Art.

Find the whole tutorial HERE.

This floral heart artwork is one of my favorite cricut explore air 2 projects

And finally my FAVE project of the day. I used Cricut Vellum to create this Modern Circle Art, and it only took about ten minutes!

The beginning of a modern design circle artwork - another fun cricut project

I LOVE the way the vellum circles change in size and width and how the colours overlap one another. This is probably going to be recreated in my home!

I’m sharing the a great tutorial for this project on the Cricut Blog today if you want to check it out!

This gorgeous circle artwork is just one customized DIY home decor project you can make with a Cricut Explore Air 2 machine

  1. What would you say is the best way or easiest way to decorate/design a home so that everything flows together and doesn’t look like you put random stuff everywhere?

  2. I would ask about the products needed for creative crafts. Sometimes I don’t want to spend a large amount for a tool I will only use once and look for products that are multi-use.

  3. One question, it is more like many questions. I have always admired the Cricut from afar, couldn’t afford. So, I guess I would ask what all can I do with it?

  4. So excited to enter to win this cricut! Over the weekend I finished mapped out my to-do list for planning my August wedding. The next 6 months will be quite busy! Basically all the DIY things will benefit from the cricut. Fingers crossed. ;)

  5. I would have to ask how do you decide on color…I always struggle choosing. And where do you like to purchase your vinyl

  6. I’d ask for some beginner tips. I had a silhouette and found it really hard to use. I want a circuit explorer air, but I feel a little intimidated after my silhouette experience.

  7. We recently just painted our living room and we’re having trouble finding the perfect wall decore. I keep hinting to my husband that with a cricut, I could make custom art for our walls!

  8. I love what you did to the dresser Lindi. That’s such a unique touch. One day when I’m big, I’m going to get myself a Cricut. It looks like there’s so much you can do with them.

  9. I would like to ask how you apply vinyl to rough surfaces (ie. reclaimed pallets) to ensure it sticks properly and doesn’t peel.

  10. What an awesome opportunity for you Lindi, to be able to go down to Salt Lake to do a project like this!
    A question I would ask would be about my bathroom in my master. It is much smaller than yours, but definitely needs some updates… using the Cricut Explore would make it easier to decorate!

  11. I would ask you to explain all the different materials you can cut on the Cricut and the best to use on different projects. For example which to use on walls, glassware, fabric, wood etc.

  12. I would ask about incorporating kids art into pieces for the wall, maybe add to their designs to make it flow ..

  13. I love using my cutting machine to create home decor. The room you decorated is beautiful. Thanks for sharing at the Wednesday Showcase party!

  14. First of many would e what is the best way to transfer the cut to whatever you put it on. I have tried with another machine but seem to always mess it up! Is there a trick?

  15. I would ask how to make a large stencil of a compass for my floor. I figure it has to be cheaper than buying one, but do not know how to do it.
