Check out the full tutorial below to see how you can create your own This DIY Custom Adhesive Vinyl Rainbow Planter!


Step 1: Open Cricut Design Space and open the Rainbow #MCDD5F9F (Cutie Shapes). Select the image and hit “ungroup”. Then, hide the top and bottom layers. Add 3 circle shapes and resize them so they fit over the eyes and mouth. Once you have completely covered these areas, select the entire image and hit “Weld”. Then, unhide the other two layers. Highlight the entire image and resize it so it’ll fit on your pot. You can use a tape measure to get the desired size for your pot.

Step 2: On your Cricut, select “vinyl” as the material you are cutting in the cut settings window and click continue.

Step 3: Add your first vinyl sheet to light grip mat with the colored side facing up. Continue with the other colors of vinyl until all three have been cut.

Step 4: Once all of your layers are finished cutting, cut around each, and then weed the remaining vinyl.

Step 5: Clean the surface of your pot where you plan on adhering your vinyl design. You can use rubbing alcohol and a cloth or rag.

Step 6: Here’s how to transfer the adhesive vinyl to the ceramic pot. First, cut a piece of transfer tape large enough to cover the design. Lay it over the design and use a scraper tool (or credit card) over the entire design with firm pressure. Slowly peel back the transfer tape. The vinyl should come up with the tape. If it doesn’t lay the transfer tape back down and rub over it again with your scrapper.

Step 7: Place the design on your pot and use your scraper to go over it, rubbing firmly. Slowly peel back the transfers tape. You’ll repeat this for the other two colors of the design.

Step 8: Add a plant and some dirt to your pot.

You now have a fun DIY custom rainbow planter to display in any room of your home to add a pop of color and greenery!
