Cricut Crafts for Beginners
If you’ve just brought home your first Cricut cutter and set it up, you’ll want to start with simple crafts until you get familiar with all that your amazing machine can do (it’s a LOT!). Here are some very beginner-friendly Cricut project ideas for you that use craft supplies you probably already have around the house.
Cricut Project Ideas for Kids
If you’re a mom or grandparent who has just picked out your new Cricut machine and set it up, you’ll love that kids can craft with Cricut machines, too!
Our first set of ideas is geared toward kids. This list includes crafts to make with kids. It also has crafts that kids can make independently to keep them occupied while you get other things done. I am sure most days you need a little bit of both!

Grab your Cricut supplies and give a few of these crafts a try. Getting creative is a great way to relieve stress and have fun. And when you work on these projects, you will walk away with something amazing for your home (or a DIY gift that people will love).
If you have questions about making Cricut project ideas, I have answers for you! Have a question but don’t see it answered below? Please leave your question for me in the comments.
What is the first thing I should make with my Cricut?
I would recommend a cutting craft such as a card or paper banner as your first Cricut project to help you get familiar with how your machine works and what it can do. After that, you could quickly move into signs and other projects that utilize vinyl.
What projects can you make with Cricut?
The possibilities are nearly endless! You can make everything from shirts and onesies to picture frames, totes, journals, and much, much more.
