This is a really easy project for a beginner who is just learning Cricut Design Space. Design Space can be intimidating when you first start using it. The more you use it, the easier it becomes, I promise!
Start by measuring your bucket to see what size letter and name you want. Make your project in Design Space. This video will show you exactly how I did it.
After your design has been cut, you are ready to weed and apply it to your project. Make sure your surface is clean before you start.
If you don’t know how to apply vinyl using transfer tape, watching this video. It will show you how to weed your letters and apply them.
When your bucket is done, you can use it to hold a potted plant, ice down sodas, chill wine, or hold blankets and quilts in the living room.
As you learn more design tips and tricks, you can create more intricate designs like the one below from Day to Day Adventures. Kim used a cursive font and welded the letters.
One you master cutting and apply vinyl, you’ll want to add it to EVERYTHING! You can make signs, organizing bins, car decals, and so much more.
