1. Bridal Shower Votive Candles
The little paper flowers on this votive candleholder look too cute for words. I can’t resist anything tiny, and the pearl center is just the cutest. (Tip: Get assorted pearls for crafting at Dollar Tree.)
Despite the fancy look of this candle wrap, it’s very easy to make since it comes as a bridal shower project in Cricut Design Space.
Supplies used: Cricut gel pen, cardstock, Cricut light grip mat, pearls, ribbon, hot glue
2. Bridal Shower Banner
I originally made this banner when planning bridal shower decor for my niece. This pennant banner is so simple to make but adds a lot of punch. Using wedding scrapbook paper really helped tie in with the theme.
Adding some DIY tissue paper pom-poms and paper flowers put a finishing touch on the banner.
Supplies used: Scrapbook paper, glitter cardstock, Cricut light-grip mat, foam tape, ribbon for hanging
3. Bride-to-Be T-Shirt
For the guest of honor, it’s fun to make a DIY t-shirt using your Cricut. Use this bride-to-be SVG design with heat-transfer vinyl to make a shirt in minutes. (Watch my EasyPress 3 Review to see a full iron-on vinyl tutorial.)
Supplies used: Cotton or polyester blend t-shirt, iron-on vinyl, Cricut standard grip mat, Cricut EasyPress or iron; Can substitute smart iron-on without a mat on Explore 3 or Maker 3
You can find this design (along with other wedding designs) in my digital download shop.
4. Bridal Shower Gift Tags
Cricut makes it easy to create any type of gift tag for bridal shower favors. You can fill a mason jar with lavender sugar scrub and add a simple “thank you” gift tag for party guests.
Note: The Cricut font used in the thank-you gift tags is called Alyssa Stencil Script.
Supplies used: Cardstock, Cricut light-grip mat, ribbon
5. Bridal Shower Treat Jar
You can take a plain mason jar and dress it up with the magic of Cricut labels. Create your own design or choose this “forever & ever” design from Cricut Design Space.
Supplies used: Smart removable vinyl for Explore 3/Maker 3 (or premium removable vinyl with standard grip mat), transfer tape, mason jar, ribbon
6. Mimosa Bar Decor for Bridal Shower
Make the perfect mimosa bar for a bridal shower using a few Cricut-made accents!
The mimosa bar sign is made using a script font with an offset to the lettering for the back layer. You can also cut paper flowers with Cricut and add some handmade tissue paper pom poms to complete the look.
Supplies used: Matte cardstock, glitter cardstock, Cricut light-grip mat, foam tape; tissue paper and cardstock for floral display
7. Bridal Shower Sash
It’s always a nice gesture to adorn the guest of honor with a satin sash to wear. You can find a plain sash (see above) and decorate it with the phrase of your choice using heat-transfer vinyl or glitter iron-on vinyl.
Note: Use a lower temperature and slightly longer time when pressing on silk or satin (270-280°F for 15-20 seconds).
Supplies used: Iron-on vinyl, satin sash, Cricut EasyPress or iron
8. Favor Bag for Bridal Shower or Bachelorette Party
A mini favor bag is a great way to send your guests home with some treats after a bridal shower. I created a mini treat bag with gold holographic vinyl to “put a ring on it.” Then I filled it with a bag of tea and honey.
The Cricut EasyPress 3 allowed me to press the design in record time.
Supplies used: Holographic iron-on vinyl, canvas treat bag, Cricut EasyPress or iron
9. Cupcake or Cake Topper for Bridal Shower
The dessert table is often the star of the show at bridal showers or baby showers. Dress up a cake or cupcakes with your very own cake toppers with wedding motifs.
I used a combination of images from my design shop and free wedding images in Cricut Design Space to create the cupcake toppers above.
Supplies used: Matte cardstock, glitter cardstock, Cricut light-grip mat, foam tape
10. DIY Bookmark for Bridal Shower
To create a keepsake with a personalized phrase, consider making your own bookmark with Cricut.
You can use Cricut pens to draw the phrase or a standard fine-point blade to cut out the letters. I chose to layer my design to reveal the patterned scrapbook paper behind the cut-out letters.
Supplies used: Cardstock, Cricut light-grip mat, embroidery floss
