Tips to Making A DIY Summer Wreath With Heat Transfer Vinyl

  • Certainly, give yourself plenty of time to do the layering of the HTV. You really don’t want to rush it because then it may not turn outright. For example, love your lemon-and to do that, you’ll need to take your time and readjust as you go.
  • For instance, you don’t need to feel like it has to be perfectly aligned, either. Above all, just make it organic it’s a lemon.
  • Wear gloves when you tie-dye. Any kind will do. I have done it with the big yellow gloves here–but those latex gloves will work or any glove. Just protect your skin because you’ll have colorful cuticles if you don’t!
  • Lastly, use more dye to color the whole kitchen towel or less dye to leave white spots. I went with fully saturated, but I might try making it again with some white spots-tie-dyeing was fun!
  • Iron the kitchen towel after you let it dry. This will help set the colors, no matter what dye you’ve used. Plus, it’s going to make cutting the towel way easier than if you let it remain all wrinkly.
  • Have fun when you’re placing the colorful bits of the towel on the flower wreath form. See a fun splash of color you like? Cut off the pieces on either side and make sure to place your pretty color on top!
  • As for door decorations, this fun wreath was really easy to make. The fact that the supplies can be purchased for cheap makes things that much better!

Tools

  • Good Scissors
  • Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 with Deep Cut Blade
  • Large Bowl
  • 4-5 Small Rubber Bands
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Transfer Tape
  • Easy Press Mini or Easy Press 2

Instructions

  1. Start by tie-dyeing your kitchen towel. Twist it up and wrap the rubber bands around the center of your bundle in 4-5 places then place it in the bowl.
  2. Either spray or pour (my preferred method, honestly) the dye onto your towel, saturating the towel in multiple places with the yellow dye or pink dye, respectively. Allow the tie-dyed towel to dry completely before messing with it again.
  3. While the towel is drying, go ahead and make your lemon by downloading the SVG file. Immediately load the SVG file into Design Space, then insert the image for a new project.
  4. Select the lettering for Hello Summer and click "weld" in the bottom right corner to have the Cricut cut the lettering as one element so it's easier to deal with.
  5. Click “Make It” in Design Space, and set the material type on the machine to “Vinyl”. Follow prompts to load and cut. Unload when finished cutting. Once the design is cut, if you need to trim excess vinyl, do so now.
  6. There is a brown piece to the SVG file--cut this from the chipboard by loading your deep-cut knife blade to the machine and changing the material in Design Space to chipboard.
  7. Layer your vinyl onto transfer tape, checking and readjusting often to get the lemon in place the way you want it to look.
  8. Place the chip board onto the transfer tape with the layered vinyl and use your heat press to lock it in place. Remove the transfer tape and discard.
  9. Once your tie-dyed towel is dry, iron it, if desired to set in the colors. Then cut the towel into 2-inch (approximately) wide strips.
  10. Hot glue the strips onto the foam form, wrapping it around snugly as you go. I only used about 2/3 of the towel and I wrapped the outer edge of the strips over onto itself so that I had a nice, clean edge.
  11. Once the form is completely wrapped, hot glue the lemon in place on the front.
  12. Use one of the remaining strips of the towel to make a hanger loop on the top of the wreath and enjoy!
