Simple BBQ Party DIY’s with Cricut. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that I love my Cricut! I truly do…I actually have a place to put my machine “away” but I use it so much I never even put it away….I used my Cricut to make so many things for our recent backyard BBQ party. I embellished a vintage cooler, a retro style picnic caddy, directional arrows, a shirt, can koozies, and more!
My hubby is constantly saying, “The food is here, the drinks are there, the pool and games are over there…” as he welcomes guests to our parties. It’s actually kind of funny, and the kids joked that we needed to make camp signs for our house when we have parties. So, that’s what I did!
Kraft Paper, Chipboard, or Cricut Poster Board
Cricut Access (For the arrow and Font)
Yard Stake or Post
Optional: Xyron Sticker Maker
First, you will need to cut out the directional arrows. I used Kraft Paper and cut out 3 layers. (This is why I used the Xyron Sticker Maker to make it more durable and heavy weight.) Once the layers were stuck together, I cut out Cricut Vinyl. I kept it simple with FOOD, DRINKS, and GAMES. Next, I weeded the vinyl and used Cricut Transfer Tape to apply the vinyl to the directional arrows.
I used the same technique to add vinyl to the picnic caddy and the vintage cooler. I love the way it added a little pop of color to the party space too!
