1. HOW TO PERSONALIZE A BEACH TOWEL WITH CRICUT MAKER 3

Watch this video to learn how to personalize a beach towel with iron-on vinyl as a gift (or for yourself). How fun! I like that the background for the design does not have to be a solid color. The design shows up well even on a busy printed background, as long as it is big enough.

2. DIY CUSTOM PILLOW WITH CRICUT SMART IRON-ON

What a cute pillow! This one uses Smart Vinyl with a Maker 3 (or Explore 3), so you could cut out multiple designs at one time to streamline your process. You could make a pillow for every room or give some as gifts.  

3. JULY 4 WREATH: CRICUT IRON-ON ON WOOD

This is so adorable! I am still amazed that you can apply iron-on vinyl to wood, but the proof is right here. There are so many possibilities for personalizing and with different color options, too. The hardest thing is deciding on a design and colors.

4. CRICUT BEGINNER PROJECT - BABY SOCKS WITH IRON-ON VINYL

There is just something about baby socks. They are so tiny and cute. They almost beg to be decorated. You could put baby's name on them or personalize them in other ways. Be creative and add something unique.

5. DIY COLORING SHIRTS WITH CRICUT

What great gifts these coloring shirts make. I don't know any child who would not love a personalized shirt like this they can color themselves. By using washable markers, they can do it over and over again. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving! 

6. HOW TO PERSONALIZE POPSICLE HOLDERS WITH CRICUT IRON-ON

Keep little fingers from freezing with these "cool" ice pop holders personalized with Cricut Iron-On. My grandchildren have already used these often since I made them. They really work!

7. GRADUATION NAPKINS WITH CRICUT FOIL IRON-ON

Add a fancy look to plain paper napkins for a graduation party or other event. The foil iron-on stands out and provides a shiny accent to these. Once you have your design figured out, it won't take long to cut and weed them all and iron them onto your napkins. I'm going to remember this for my next gathering.

8. CAMPING PROJECTS WITH A CRICUT

If you are a camper, this is a fun way to personalize whichever campsite you are staying in. It's easy to put up and take down. By making your own flag, you are not limited to any particular design or color combination.

9. DELIGHTFUL SPRING GARDEN FLAGS USING CRICUT IRON-ON

I would totally love to have this banner in my yard, if I were a gardener. The color combination is perfect and the designs are so sweet, not to mention easy to cut and weed. Using a Cricut EasyPress 2 makes it a snap to iron your designs onto the fabric as well.

10. CHRISTMAS TIC TAC TOE BAGS WITH CRICUT AND EASYPRESS

Such a unique gift idea at Christmas time for all the young people you know. Make each one a little tic tac toe bag with the stones inside, so they can take it with them. They will love having their own little game with their name on it. A quick and easy iron-on project with a big impact.

11. MOMMY AND ME SHOES DIY USING CRICUT EASYPRESS MINI

It may not be easy to find matching fashions for Mommy and daughter, but how about making matching shoes by decorating two pair with the same design? Pick something you both like for the design or just do something generic. Either way, it will be so fun to wear them together!

12. WOOD PLANT POT STAKES WITH CRICUT IRON-ON

Here is another cute project for a gardener you know. It might even be you! Add a bit of flair to plants with these small wooden circles and Cricut Iron-On, which are glued to popsicle sticks. Or make some for an event by switching the designs to something appropriate for the occasion and sticking them in cupcakes or onto party favors.

13. SPIRAL BETTY WITH CRICUT IRON-ON

This is a really neat project with amazing results. I love how you can see the original photo with the spiral designs going through it. Even the process to make this looks fun. I think I might have to try it. What about you?

14. KITCHEN REFRESH:  NEW VALANCE USING CRICUT IRON-ON

What a great idea! I like anything that is different from the norm, so I can have original home décor nobody else has. This is a simple and inexpensive way to decorate your kitchen and provide a functional window treatment that offers inspiration or amusement.

15. FABRIC BABY BLOCK USING CRICUT IRON-ON

What a great gift for tiny humans. The face designs on these are just adorable. I would use the same ones but maybe switch up the fabric color. These blocks would be easy for a baby to pick up, and they could be tossed around without doing any damage. Entertaining babies can be so fun.


Which of these Cricut Iron-On projects would you like to make? I'll bet there are more than one. It sure can be hard to choose. So many ideas, so little time...but it sure is a lot of fun!
