Instructions

  1. Paint the bottom of the planter white. Paint the top edge of the planter black. Let dry.
  2. Once dry it's time to start cutting the vinyl for the snowman face. In Cricut design space software we are going to use the shapes tool. Navigate to the shapes tool and open 4 circles and 1 triangle. Do this by clicking on the shapes.
  3. The first circle move to the left and make it the size you would like the eye. Then right-click and hit duplicate. Pull the eye over to where you'd like the next eye to be. Now resize the triangle to the nose size and rotate it to point right.
  4. Take another circle make it small and put it on the left as the start of the mouth. Duplicate and put as the start of the mouth on the opposite side. Repeat this process with the other two circles completely the mouth.
  5. Now click and draw a box over the entire design then click weld in the bottom right corner. Your design should now be once piece and can be resized to less than an inch which will fit on these small planters.
  6. If your planter is larger then just resize to your measured space. Now navigate to the contour on the right of the screen. Remove the triangle by clicking on it in contour. This will allow you to cut the eyes and mouth in just black. Place the black vinyl on the cutting mat and set your machine to vinyl on the dial.
  7. Cut out the eyes and mouth. Once it's complete then weed the design with the weeding tool. Set aside. Now go back to design space and hit contour. Click the nose to bring it back and click the eyes and mouth to remove.
  8. Take the orange vinyl and place it on the cutting mat. Cut on vinyl set on the dial. Once the design is cut weed the design. Cut any excess paper around the design. Now cut a piece of transfer tape with scissors to fit the design. Pull the orange nose off and place it on the sheet with the black. Pull transfer tape from backing and place on weeded design.
  9. Using an old gift card or scraper tool rub well over the entire design. Pull slowly making sure the design sticks to the transfer tape then place on the planter. Rub well with a card or scraper tool. Peel back slowly making sure everything sticks to the design.
  10. Once the design is on the planter you can now fill the planter with potting soil or rocks and top off with glittered pinecone. This is super cute to add to gift baskets or to make for small home decor.little planter with white base and snowman face on it with pine cones in the vases
