Hello friends! Today I’m sharing this awesome post about how to create St. Patricks Day Home Decor using the Cricut Maker. I cut multiple materials in this post and create a couple really awesome, beautiful decorations for this holiday!
This post is sponsored by Cricut. They sent me all these materials to use, but all the thoughts and images are mine alone.

Project 1: St. Patrick’s Day Gold Coin Banner
- Cricut Maker
- ChipBoard 2mm
- Knife Blade and Housing
- Strong Grip Mat
- Standard Grip Mat
- Gold Textured Glossy Vinyl
- Forest Green Checkered Matte Vinyl
- Forest Green Premium Vinyl
- Green Glitter Vinyl
- White Ribbon
The first thing you’ll do want to do is put your knife blade and housing into the machine. Next, push all of the white pads on the rollers as far to the right as possible (as shown below). These are not needed when cutting something thick like chipboard and will actually damage the chipboard if you do not slide them to the right. Now place your 2mm Chipboard onto the strong grip mat and load it into the machine.

You can see a short video of the process here:
Cut chipboard and vinyl circles:
Make sure all the measurements work for you and go ahead and cut the first mat which are your large chipboard circles with small oval holes. The Cricut Maker will make one pass, assess how many more it will need, and will cut from there. Mine actually cut through before the passes said they were finished, so be sure to watch your project cutting. The small pieces it cuts out for the holes also flaked off a little as it was cutting, so be sure to watch and blow away any debris.
For the gold coin look use the Gold Glossy Premium Textured Metallic Vinyl. It’s beautiful!
Place the vinyl onto your StandardGrip Mat and load it into the machine. Cut the second mat which are the somewhat smaller circles, again with holes in them for the ribbon.
Take each circle and place them onto the circle chipboard, being careful to line up the holes.
Once your clovers are cut, simply peel them off like a sticker and place the in the center of your gold circles.
Next, add your ribbon! Simple loop them through the holes and cut to the length you need for your table or mantel.
Here it is with the St. Patrick’s Day Wall art. I share that tutorial below!
Project 2: St. Patrick’s Day Artwork
- Cricut Maker
- Fine-Point Blade
- Standard Grip Mat
- Forest Green Vinyl
- Platinum Textured Vinyl (or Paper)
- Weeding Tool
- Transfer Tape
- Frame (mine is Hearth and Hand brass)
Cut out the words in forest green vinyl.
To remove vinyl from the mat without damaging it, flip the mat over and peel the mat off of the vinyl, not the other way around.
Weed the vinyl.
Be sure to remove all the little pieces in between and inside letters. This takes awhile but it definitely worth it!
Use Cricut Transfer tape to transfer the image. Place it over the vinyl evenly.
Place the transfer tape onto the textured metallic vinyl, being sure to place it centered on the square.
Remove the transfer tape.
Place into your chosen frame. Mine is a frame that looks like the image is floating in the glass.
Here is the final product! I absolutely love this wall art and aside from a little extra time weeding it was a quick and easy project! What do you think? Would you hang one in your home? Let me know if you make one!
I hope you like these two St. Patrick’s Day projects that you can make using your Cricut Maker! Here are some images with both of them that I have displayed in my dining room. They’d be great on a fireplace mantel too!
