Last week I shared my love for Cricut vinyl and all of the ways it can make DIY-ing your wedding that much easier! Well today I’m excited to share with you these terracotta plates that I created using my Cricut Explore Air and white vinyl. These plates would add the perfect rustic touch to a wedding tablescape or bachelorette party – plus they double as place cards saving you time and money! Read on below to learn how to easily re-create this look!Supplies:
Cricut Explore Air
Adhesive Cutting Mat
White Acrylic Paint
Pink Acrylic Paint
Assorted Paint Brushes
Large Terracotta Saucer (Located in the plant/ gardening aisle)
I purchased calligraphy font for this project. It is a thin font so if you find it difficult to cut I suggest choosing a thicker brush font within Design Space like Barbella.First you will need to paint the rim of your terracotta saucers. I used pink acrylic paint to add color to the rim then added white polka dots for a fun touch! There’s nothing that fits weddings better than calligraphy and with a Cricut you can achieve the handwritten look for a fraction of the cost! While your plates are drying, type up your guests names in Photoshop and upload the files into Design Space. I promise if you use Cricut vinyl your guests will never know this was typed and not painted on! Drag your file open to be about 5″ to 6″ long. This is the perfect size for these large terracotta saucers. Add your white vinyl to the cutting mat and move your Cricut dial to vinyl. Load your cutting mat and press the flashing Cricut button to begin cutting!Once your Cricut has finished cutting use the weeding tool to carefully remove the negative space.Place transfer tape over your vinyl and carefully remove from the backing.Center your vinyl over the middle of the terracotta saucer and smooth on using the scraper tool. Carefully remove the transfer tape to reveal your finished plate!Stay tuned next week as I show you how to create an entire bachelorette party tablescape using these terracotta plates and Cricut!
