How to Make a Thanksgiving Wall Decoration

STEP 1: Cut Fabric Squares and Fusible Webbing

Cut your fabric into 5″ x 5″ squares if you’re not using precuts. You will need twelve squares. Then cut twelve Paper Backed Fusible Webbing slightly smaller than your fabric squares.

STEP 3: Cut Out Your Letters

Tips below for cutting fabric with a Cricut Maker or Explorer.

  • Use the rotary blade (Cricut Maker) or fine point blade (Cricut Explore) and pink grip mat or your green mat if it’s not super sticky.
  • Cut out your letters by uploading the Free SVG letter file into Cricut Design Space. NOTE: The letters in the SVG file are already set up in reverse (mirror image) and correctly sized for this project.
  • Place your fused fabric square in the upper left-hand corner of your cutting mat (fabric side down).
  • Use a brayer to make sure your fabric firmly adheres to the mat.
  • Set to “Bonded Fabric” or “burlap” with “Default” pressure. I recommend doing a test on your machine first to make sure you have the right settings.
  • Cut one letter at a time.
  • After cutting, peel your letters carefully from the mat so as not to distort them.

STEP 4: Assemble the Artwork

With all twelve letters cut you’re ready to assemble the Thanksgiving wall art. If your fusible webbing has a paper backing, remove it from each letter, then arrange it on 11″ x 14″ cardstock or poster board.

Make sure to remove the paper backing from each letter after cutting.

Once you have the letters placed where you want them, put a light cloth over everything and iron the letters to your cardstock or you can just glue them down. I ironed mine on with a hot, dry iron for about 5-8 seconds and it worked out fine.

You can glue your letters onto an 11" x 14" cardstock or iron them on with a hot, dry iron for a few seconds. Make sure to remove the paper backing from each letter first, arrange the letters where you want them them on the cardstock then carefully place a light cloth over the letters before ironing.
