So you have got yourself a new Cricut maker, and you want to know some tried and true projects that will allow you to use various materials together. Drawing from my experience, I’ve got a few suggestions for Cricut wood projects that cater to all skill levels. Trust me, you’ll want to give these a shot.
What is a Cricut?
Best Types of Wood for Cricut
There are various Cricut maker wood projects you can create, but I suggest thinner material such as balsa wood and basswood. In fact, any thin sheet of plywood would work best with your Circut. Aside from wooden pieces, you can also use the Cricut maker machine for vinyl, paper, and more.
Top 10 Unique Cricut Wood Projects You Can Try
1. Wood Letters
Wooden letters are among the most common Cricut machine projects. You can use a handsaw for these crafts, but a Cricut machine will produce better lines. Wooden letters can be used for address numbers, stockings, and decorations for your door.
I’ve discovered that balsa wood or basswood can be brilliantly used to craft unique accessories like wooden earrings. With my trusty woodworking machine, I’ve effortlessly brought many of my envisioned designs to life.
4. Christmas Tree Trinkets
While I’ve come across numerous DIY ideas, Christmas tree trinkets are hands down the most enjoyable. When it comes to Christmas tree decorations, the sky’s the limit. I’ve crafted countless shapes and painted them in an array of colors before proudly hanging them on my tree.
Coasters can be likened to DIY decorations that you don’t string up. Aside from using wood, you can also use vinyl and enlist the help of your sewing tool to make more elaborate coaster projects. In fact, it’s one of the top-selling wood products on Etsy.
6. Name Puzzle
One of the most straightforward Cricut maker wood projects I’ve always loved is crafting bookmarks. It’s essential not to choose too thick a material, as you’ll want it to slide easily between the pages of a book. In my experience, basswood is a top-notch choice for this DIY endeavor.
8. Animal Decors
Aside from small DIY jobs, you can also graduate to home decor once you have mastered Cricut wood projects. Animal decors are a fun way to bring life to your walls and smaller versions of the animals can also become parts of your other DIY  ideas.
A plaque is a general idea I have that requires the basics of sign post making. Grab your Cricut maker, cut a suitable piece and let your imagination run wild.
