Are you as excited as I am about the new round of Cricut Design Space™Star projects rolling through? I always love to see the creative ideas made with the Cricut Explore. This month, Team 10 created projects to make your own Winter Wonderland…
Don’t worry…I haven’t even begun to decorate for Christmas. I can’t even get my boys to decide for sure what they want to dress up as for Halloween. But, I have been thinking about Christmas and winter decor. This fun deer art is a sneak peek of more to come!
To create your own Whimsical Deer, gather up some supplies…I chose a more colorful look, but wouldn’t this be gorgeous in all white or cream?
The basic supplies:
- 3 sheets of a heavier weight cardstock (for the deer)
- 1 sheet of any weight cardstock or a mix of papers (for the snowflakes)
- sewing machine
- 3-Dimensional adhesive squares
- Double sided tape
- pom-pom (for nose)
- empty frame and background fabric
Let’s get crafting…
When creating projects, I like to first get all of my pieces cut and ready to assemble. Using the Cricut Design Space™ and my Cricut Explore machine, I cut 3 deer head silhouettes from a brown kraft paper cardstock in 10 in, 10.5 in, and 11 inch.
I wanted them to stack slightly with the smallest in the front. Cricut Design Space™ has so many options for choosing the perfect deer share for your needs.
Time to make a snowflake garland. There are SO MANY snowflake choices in Cricut Design Space™!
Then, I tried something I have never done before…Sewed paper! I have to admit I was a little nervous. It was so quick and easy! I just ran one snowflake through the machine and then left a little space before adding the next. I added the snowflakes in an alternating pattern, although it didn’t really matter. You can turn them easily with the little bit of thread left in between each snowflake.
I wrapped the backing of an existing picture frame with a chevron pattern. See how I painted the fabric here.
