Monograms are a fun and easy way to personalize something, whether it’s for you or someone else. Whether the monogram is simple or fancy, adding that little touch can elevate the design. Here are eleven projects you can make with your Cricut if you want to add some variety to your monogram work.
1 – Acrylic Keychains
These keychains have a monogram on one side and a fun pattern on the other side. Since the acrylic is clear, there is a nice layered look without having to layer the vinyl. Along with her instructions, Slay At Home Mother shares that they can also be used for Easter baskets or as ornaments.
2 – Simple Monogram Ring Dish
If you don’t have somewhere to keep your rings, this is an awesome project. Meredith, at Wait ‘Til Your Father Gets Home, gives instructions for a simple monogram ring dish. This is a fun little project that lets you take something functional and dress it up a bit.
3 – Layered Monogram Artwork With Split Monogram
There’s something about a multi-layered piece of art that really pops. Cut N Make crafts shows how to make 3D layered artwork with a split monogram. This project looks impressive and is also great for beginners.
4 – Pumpkin With A Split Monogram
This adorable pumpkin can be pulled out year after year for some personalized fall decor. You get all the beauty of pumpkins without the mess of carving them (or having them rot). Jennifer, of Jennifer Maker, gives step-by-step instructions and includes a free SVG file.
5 – Monogrammed Dessert Plate
These monogrammed dessert plates are great gifts. You can also make this with a larger serving plate and never have to worry about which plate is yours at a party again. Uniquely Ursula shows how to make the templates for the monogram, and has other videos that teach how to etch glass if that is a skill you want to learn for this project.
