Cricut Christmas Pallet Project Inspiration


wood wall decor project

Get your die cutting machine ready for a fun and easy Christmas wall décor project that you can finish in just one evening. With just a small scrap of Christmas fabric, a wooden pallet plaque, and other materials that you probably have around the house, you can create a stunning piece of holiday decor. All you need to do is follow the manufacturer's instructions to apply the paper-backed iron-on adhesive to the fabric and use a die cutting machine to cut out a simple design. After ironing the die cut fabric to a sheet of heavy paper, cut the sheet into strips and glue them onto the slats of your pallet. Finally, paint or stain the pallet and add any additional embellishments you want to complete the project.


  • Wood pallet plaque, 16×12 inch
  • Watercolor or other heavy paper, 9×12 inch sheet
  • Christmas fabric, 9×12 inch
  • Paper-backed iron-on adhesive, 9×12 inch
  • Paint or stain to contrast with fabric
  • Ribbon or trim, optional
  • Felt floral branch, optional


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.
