Quick DIY Kitchen Decor Crafts

I was looking at creating some fun kitchen decor. I’ve seen “EAT” and “YUM” wall art and pictures at local decor stores. I wanted to create something similar that had the letters welded so it would flow together and be easier to apply with vinyl. I started with a simple script font. I then converted it to outlines and adjusted each letter in Adobe Illustrator. (I like to create thicker letters and most script/fun fonts have thin spots that won’t cut well.) I extended the scrolls at the end of the letters and welded it all together. Now let me show you what I made from this from this YUM art.

Yum. Yum everywhere.

Let’s get going – these are all quick decor ideas. After gathering your supplies, you can probably do them in about 10-20 minutes tops!

DIY Tray Kitchen Decor Craft with Free SVG

Supplies I Used:

My first idea was this cute little tray (about 9-inches) I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I painted this one with Agave blue chalk paint (from Walmart). It took 2 coats and painted nicely. The small jar was under $2! {Love this Blue Color!!} Can’t wait to see it done!

I grabbed a jar of their Waverly clear coat but wasn’t impressed. I’ll stick the Rust-Oleum Chalked Protective topcoat matte clear for chalk painting. I ended up painting another coat of the Agave blue because I didn’t like the look of that Waverly clear coat.

Let this dry completely. Mine sat for more than a day. Next, I added a couple baby forks I found at my favorite thrift store. Finishing it off by adding some twine to the handles.

 

I created the YUM SVG and cut that to fit in the ridges. Easy enough….

IDEA: You could also use an old frame. Be sure to mirror the Yum if you add it to the back of the glass. Or you can add it to the outside and then glue the forks on there too. Would be fun to add some material, burlap or pattern paper behind the glass too.

Download the free SVG YUM design for your vinyl here. Next, upload the SVG to your Design Space.

As shown, it works best to begin by using a circle shape in Design Space the same size of my charger center to make sure the size looked good before cutting. Remember to delete the circle before you cut the “Yum” vinyl.

Be sure to set the Cricut to match your product setting. I’m doing a happy dance, I  remembered to check the settings on my Cricut before I cut it this time. Yay me!
