Cricut Christmas Pallet Project Inspiration

Cricut Christmas Pallet Project Inspiration

Use your die cutting machine to whip up this easy Christmas wall décor in a single evening.  The project relies on a small scrap of fabric and other materials that you likely have around the house.  Add a wooden pallet, and you’re all set.

Apply the paper-backed iron-on adhesive to the back side of  your tightly woven Christmas fabric following the manufacturer’s instructions.  Use a die cutting machine to cut a simple design from the bonded fabric.  Iron the die cut fabric to a sheet of 9×12 inch watercolor or other heavy paper.
