MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Removable Vinyl

Acrylic has quickly become a classic favorite when it comes to wedding details. Its versatility makes it perfect for most every wedding theme! These blank acrylic hexagon place cards can be purchased on Amazon and instantly personalized with your Cricut machine. We like using removable vinyl on this type of material because it helps give a new life to acrylic after the wedding day! They can be upcycled into so many other DIY projects or gift ideas.

As opposed to removable vinyl, permanent vinyl makes a gorgeous statement on glassware that may get damp or be affected by humidity! Craft beer aficionados can pop the question with a fabulous message on a mug! If you're looking for unique ways to propose to your partner, electronic cutting machines changed the game making anything possible (including a past velvet proposal banner DIY we made!).

For the ultimate summer bachelorette party with your pals, fancy up a gorgeous special occasion waist bag that makes concerts, beaches, and other get-together moments just a little bit extra. You can grab these exact fanny packs on Amazon Prime for quick crafting! Iron-on material is so much fun to play with when it comes to personalizing things, especially when it's shiny gold foil. We recommend using the Cricut EasyPress and its accompanying EasyPress Mat with this project because it evenly distributes the heat on the synthetic nylon fabric and protects it from unwanted melting when using the recommended settings!

Upgrade your modern wedding stationery with a bit of angled textured vinyl.

Wedding Ceremony Memorial Chair Decor

see our DIY tutorial

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Cardstock

For the scrapbookers and card makers, paper is already your art, so consider bringing that talent into the wedding! Not all loved ones can be there in person on the wedding day, so creating memorial decor handmade with love can be one of the most special tributes. Neutral-colored cardstock makes for sturdy timeless 2D and 3D designs when framing your loved one's photo. If you're new to Cricut, you'll need to use the LightGrip cutting mat for paper crafts.

Tote Bag for Getting Ready

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Everyday Iron-On

Getting ready bags are really popular with brides and their wedding parties. We see a lot of cotton canvas bags, so we especially loved this bridal bag made of jute/burlap for a unique look! Because they're more heavy duty, anyone can upcycle these into market bags after the wedding day! Like the fanny packs above, we recommend using the Cricut EasyPress with this project because it evenly distributes the heat on the burlap material.

Just cut your wedding food or drink station names and transfer it onto your blank signs! Little chalkboard easel signs can be found on Amazon, but you can make your own if you can't find them already constructed. Use some transfer tape to apply the names on your signs, and there you have it!

Agate Stone Sweetheart Table Number

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Permanent Vinyl

We have a love affair with agate wedding details. Well, any naturally-made material, really! Take agate crystal bookends and transform them into a special table number for your sweetheart table. It's not usually cost effective for all reception tables, so just using them for you and your partner's table gives a unique and made-for-you look! We recommend permanent vinyl and StrongGrip transfer tape because of the slick polished surface.

Flower Girl Wedding Denim Jacket

see our DIY tutorial

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Patterned Iron-On, Everyday Iron-On

Jean jackets are super trendy right now for the relaxed wedding vibe. There are gorgeous denim bridal jacket options on Etsy for brides, but don't forget the little ladies in your crew! We found our jean jacket at a local thrift store and upcycled it into a cute accessory for the flower girl! Since we published the tutorial in 2018, Cricut has come out with a SportFlex iron-on material. While the normal iron-on works great on jean jackets, the SportFlex has a bit more stretch which can be good for ironing over thick denim seams.

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Permanent Vinyl or Everyday Iron-On

Wood is another favorite material to work with when it comes to wedding DIY projects, but we definitely love how easy it is for table numbers! You can actually use iron-on OR vinyl when it comes to this simple project. Whatever you have on hand works! Unstained 5x7 wood blocks can be purchased on Etsy and then you can stain them with your choice of natural hue. We especially love any wood stain color that helps make the white table number pop!

Acrylic Menu Sign

see the inspiration

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Removable Vinyl

Just like the acrylic place cards shown above, you can transform a larger piece of acrylic into wedding-related signage for gorgeous modern decor. A menu display sign can be a photo statement in of itself and be a bit more eco-friendly by eliminating individual paper menus! Most home improvement chain stores have acrylic sheets you can buy, or if you want to support smaller businesses, you will easily find that Etsy shops can customize the size and shape of a blank plexiglass acrylic sign for you.
