Iron-on week was last week but I couldn’t resist making this easy wooden box centerpiece as a bonus project. Frankly, I am a bit obsessed over adding iron-on vinyl to wood. It is such an easy technique and it turns out perfectly just about every single time. You gotta love a craft project like that!
Supplies needed for this wooden box centerpiece:

- Cricut Iron On
- Cricut Machine (click here to see my favorite)
- Wood box
- Cricut EasyPress or Iron (click here to see which I prefer)
- Home Sweet Home cut file
- Weeding Tools (optional)
- Parchment paper
Start by cutting your iron-on with the cut file and your Cricut machine. Be sure to mirror the image and cut with the shiny side down. Then weed all excess vinyl including the centers of letters. Weeding tools make this a bit easier but they are optional.
Lay your weeded iron-on down on the front of the box and lay a piece of parchment paper over the top. This will help to protect the wood from the heat while you press. Then set your EasyPress or Iron to the recommended temperature. Once heated, press for the recommended time then remove the carrier sheet from the iron-on.
All that is left is to decorate your wooden box centerpiece. Here we added in a bit of faux greenery but you could also add flowers or anything else you desire.
I love this design as well as how the iron-on looks on the wood surface.
