Fall Cutting Board
When it comes to using a Cricut, there is so much you can do with them! The great thing about using the Cricut or a cutting board is that you don’t have to use a bunch of supplies. In fact, the list is pretty short! And, the materials will go far, if you know how to use them and what to use them for!
I love the farmhouse style. I guess you can say it is most likely because I live on a very large fruit and vegetable farm. Farmers help feed America and I am proud to say that my family definitely does their part. That is why I created this fun Farmer’s Market Cutting Board. The meaning is special and it’s important to support our local farmers.
Here is how I made this easy DIY Farmhouse Style craft project.

How to Make Fall Cutting Board
Learning how to make a fall cutting board is going to be easier than you think. Here are the basic steps for making the cutting board, but make sure you check out the how-to below for the full directions.
1. Import and load the SVG file (you can download it here).
2. Adjust the vinyl within your machine.
3. One the cut is made, you’ll move the vinyl away from the design.
4. Use the scraper tool to apply the transfer tape. You’ll need to do this to get the design off the carrier sheet and onto your project’s actual surface, which is the cutting board.
5. Turn the design face down, apply pressure, and pull the carrier sheet away from the transfer tape.
6. Make sure you’re happy with the location of the design on the cutting board.
7. Remove the transfer sheet away from the design.
8. Use the ribbon and tie it around the handle of the cutting board.
How long does it take to make the fall cutting board?
The fall cutting board should take you less than a half hour to make. It makes an excellent decor item or you can use it as a gift around your house.
What kind of ribbon should I use?
I used a burlap ribbon, but you can use whatever you have on hand. It’s a fall-themed board, so you can try and stick with those colors, if you’d like.
Hopefully, this fall-themed cutting board gets you excited about the crisp season. The weather has cooled down and that means we get LOTS of time for crafting and Cricut projects.

Step 3: When the cut is complete begin to weed the vinyl off and away from the design using your weeding tool (looks like a dentist pick). Don’t forget to weed around the outside of the letters and small parts inside any letter that are enclosed (ex. a,e,o ).
