Using your Cricut system to help you with your décor may not have been your first instinct; after all, the Cricut system is die cut making for scrapbooking and paper crafts, right?

Cricut Cartridges Home Décor Ideas- Kids’ Rooms
Have your children expressed the desire to decorate their room? It’s tough to make that call, because you want them to be able to express themselves with their décor, but you don’t want to have to start over each time they change their minds about what kind of room they want to have. Well, with Cricut Cartridges, Home Décor is much simpler.
Did you know that you can actually use your Cricut machine to cut images onto window cling material? Let your child choose the Cricut cartridge that they want, and dial up the size so that it will be proportionate to the design. Let the Cricut cut the images your child wants to have onto the window cling material. Have their room painted a muted, neutral color and use the window clings to spice up their design.
The added bonus is that your child can change up her design anytime she wants by rearranging the clings around her room. If she decides that, after awhile, the design isn’t right for her, you can show her the Cricut Cartridges again and let her choose away!
3 Cricut Cartridges Home Décor Ideas- Throughout the House
Have you walked into a home that displays inspirational words and phrases above doorways, on stairs, or on placards throughout their home? It seems that those homes offer a cozy, personal feel. Let Cricut help you to create that same ambiance in your home.
Look through your Cricut Cartridges and find a font that will complement your design choice. Warning: Choosing just one font may prove very difficult, as there are so many beautiful fonts to choose from! Adjust the size on the dial to match the size of the words you want to have. Now, you have several choice options:
1. You can choose to let your Cricut die cuts serve as stencils. You can even turn this into a fun family experience by allowing the whole family to help stencil the inspirational words.
2. You can choose to use the window clings to create the words and phrases. This way, you can change them out as often as you want to, creating a conversation piece for guests.
3. You can use fabric such as felt or velvet for the letters, creating a warmer, cozier feeling with the words.
4. You can choose to stencil the words or phrases onto a painted surface, such as the backs of chairs, a wood placard, or the kitchen table. This creates a relaxed, “home-y” feel to your décor.
