Well it’s been a few months and the love for my Cricut Explore machine has not faded at all. In fact it’s even bigger with the holiday craft season upon us. So many ideas!! I can’t believe that this is already the last round of the Cricut Design Space Star challenge. If you remember so far I created a cake topper and a holiday card and today I’m sharing this simple but adorable holiday wall decal with you. Keep reading to see more of this piece of holiday art I created plus a chance to win a Cricut Explore of your very own!
You may recognize this deer head that made an appearance on the inside cover of Merry magazine. It was a sale score at HomeSense and I love it so much that I wanted to make it even more of a feature in my space.I got the felt pom pom balls from Etsy and made a little garland to lighten it up. I used adhesive vinyl on my Cricut for the first time to make this fun self-serve mimosa bar last week and I’m kinda hooked.
I decided to add a simple holiday message and leaf garland design to make it special. I designed the artwork using Adobe Illustrator then imported it into Design Space to cut out. The adhesive vinyl takes a tiny bit of getting used to but overall it’s pretty easy to work with. And it’s removable so if you need to play around with it, it’s forgivable and doesn’t ruin your walls in any way.

I LOVE this! I want to make this project too! I’ve been dreaming of a Cricut for a couple years now, and could do so much for this! Love, love, love!!!
This would really test my crafting skills which as of late, have been rusty! Would love to make some sweet decals…. Maybe even a cake topper for a party!
I love everything about this! I would keep that fauxidermy and pompom garland up all year. As for what I’d make….i’d make state-themed art, and adorable cup-cake toppers, banners, cute 3-D cards and on and on.
There’s so many beautiful Christmas decorating projects I would love to make. You make it look so easy with the explore! I would start with beautiful white doves to decorate the tree
This would totally be fun to experiment with!
p.s. Love the creativity that went into the wall decor!
This is awesome! I love it!
Your deer is so cool, I really need one like him!! Love how you styled him and what you did on the Cricut…good luck!
i’d love to test this machine and do some hand printed baby clothes!!
I really dig the vine, it looks great! I’ve been sketching a lot of them myself. So simple and beautiful! Great job!!
Love, love, love the gold adhesive vinyl! Especially since it won’t ruin walls. Also, incorporating your deer head adds some fun dimension! Genius!
This looks so perfectly festive. And I’m STILL obsessing over that holiday card you made!
Thanks Ashley! The card was super easy! Hopefully you win the Cricut and can try for yourself.
This is so pretty! I love it!
I love your idea of decorating the wall around a 3D object!
Loving the neat idea’s on wall decor.
I would make some shirts for my kids!
What we do is provide you with insulation that’s quick and easy
to use – and saves your hard earned money on heating and cooling bills.
Exterior wall insulation is best for that and you can remove that entire
problem. Many home improvement companies offer these services also.
I would love to make the same Rudolph’s for each of my grand kids! This would be the very first one I would make for the holidays!
I would make glitter tulip vinyl transfers for a shirt.
