If you're looking for a simple craft for Fall, this is one of my favourites! It instantly turns a plain cutting board into seasonal decor (and you can remove the decal when you're ready for something new). All you need for this DIY is a round wooden cutting board, a Cricut machine and some removable white vinyl.
How to make a DIY Fall cutting board with a Cricut
Start with a large wooden cutting board. Mine is a round shape that's about 12" in diameter with a marble bottom. I found it at Walmart a couple of years ago.
Next, open up Cricut Design Space and create a new project. Click on the "Images" menu and find your favourite Fall text image to use for your cutting board and insert it into your project. The image I used is called Pumpkin Spice Everything Text #MC7025FF. Resize the image so that it fits on your board with about an inch of room around it.

Place some removable white vinyl onto your Cricut mat, and then send your design to your Cricut machine. I'm using my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut this project. Once your design is cut onto your vinyl, weed away any excess vinyl.
Place some transfer tape on top of your design and smooth it down.
Flip the design over, and carefully remove the vinyl's backing.
Center the design on your cutting board and smooth it down. I chose to have mine slightly higher on my board so that it wasn't on the marble portion.
Finally, carefully remove the transfer tape and your simple DIY Fall cutting board is complete!
I love using this as seasonal kitchen counter decor because it doesn't take up too much space. I can also flip the cutting board over and use the reverse side, then wash it and prop it back up as decor again! Since the vinyl is removable, it's easy to take off the design and do something different later. What do you think of this simple DIY?

I love this cutting board. Perfect for fall but I love that you can still change it up.
Is there a way to make the vinyl per mantle adhered to the cutting board & other surfaces?
