Summer is finally here and that means it’s time to whip out the sunglasses! I used to only have one or two pairs, but what was I thinking? Sunglasses are the perfect accessory to collect! You can have expensive ones, cheap ones, silly ones, etc. and they totally change up an outfit! But I was only wearing one pair because they are impossible to store without scratching or digging through them to find the one you want, so I DIY’d my own Sunglasses Display! I haven’t mounted it to the wall yet, but it’s so cute and super easy to make with a peg board, some paint, hooks, and customizing it with your Cricut! And it’s going to look fab in my dressing room closet! Now I can find my yellow heart sunglasses, or my red lips sunglasses, or my kitty glasses, etc.! Here’s the tutorial. You’ll need some supplies:
- Pegboard hooks
- Painter’s tape
- Optional: Wooden Sign
- Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
- Cricut Holographic Vinyl
- Cricut Tools
- Transfer Tape
First, if you would like to, paint your pegboard. Use painter’s tape to make a design, or spray paint the entire thing a fun, bright color! If you want to add “My Future’s So Bright” to an additional wooden board, paint that one, too!
While it dries, prep your Cricut files in Cricut Design Space. I used the Cerebri Sans font to make the My Future’s So Bright board and cut it out along with 6 sunglasses using my Cricut Explore on pink Cricut Holographic Vinyl. Use your Cricut tools to remove the excess vinyl from the sheet and cut out the words. Then use transfer tape to stick the words onto either your pegboard or an optional wooden sign.
I have the Cricut Essential Tool Set in Mint to match my Mint Cricut Explore. Do you absolutely need these tools in order to make things with your Cricut? The honest answer is no. However, do they make it easier? Yes! The Cricut Essential Tool Set is a 7 piece set that comes with tweezers to lift and secure delicate material, a weeder (the one that looks like a dental pick) to remove tiny negative cuts, scissors with protective blade cover, a spatula to lift cuts from the mat (so you aren’t trying to use your fingernails and scream at the mat like I used to), a scraper to burnish material and clean all cutting mats (comes in handy when using sequined paper), a scoring stylus to add fold lines to cards and envelopes, and a high-quality trimmer for materials up to 12″ wide.
Then set up your pegboard with the hooks, signs, and add the cut out sunglasses.
