Today I have the pleasure of posting over that Cricut blog // here //. They invited me a while back to share a post showcasing how I can use my Cricut in the kitchen! Everyone does labels and such, but that’s been done to death, so I scratched my head for far too long figuring out what to do. That’s when the idea of a DIY Kitchen Aid Mixer Decal came to mind.
In the re-shuffle of the kitchen after our renter friendly kitchen upgrades // here // I ended-up moving a lot of my appliances and decor around. My Kitchen Aid mixer is now featured more prominently on the counter, but for some reason the all-white mixer was a bit of an eye-sore. Well, less of an eye-sore and more “blah.” I bought it on Black Friday sales a few years ago so I wasn’t able to pick a fancy custom colour and have been feeling “stuck” with the white.
While you’ll have to click over to the Cricut blog // here // to see the step-by-step for the DIY Kitchen Aid Mixer Decal, but I can still share some beautiful after shots here. I will tell you this though, it took me about an hour to make and required the basic compliment of tools, so don’t attempt this one if you have 15 minutes for a project. If you only have 15 minutes to get creative consider my vinyl face succulent planters // here //.
The DIY Kitchen Aid Mixer Decal is sturdy and stylish, it just takes a while to get it all together.
The folk pattern looks perfect on the mixer. I spent a good evening looking through patterns online trying to find something that worked for me.
You’ll never catch me with a chevron pattern, and I sure as sh*t wasn’t going to do something stupid with the cookie monster peering out over the controls, so I started with my favourite pattern from last year – Otomi. You can see my DIY Otomi Chargers // here //.
I didn’t want to do Otomi again, but I did want a complex interplay between the various elements in the pattern and the potential for colour. One click lead to four clicks, which brought me to a wonderful folk pattern.
I’ve been considering a pyrex collection (although I don’t know where I’d put it) and most of those have beautiful folk patterns, so why not kick-off my collection in style! with some rose gold foil artwork on my mixer.
I’ve had it in action for a few occasions now, and there foil is still holding strong – success! I wouldn’t change a thing, not even the rose gold foil!
The best part is that if this ever gets to be too much, I can take it all off and start from scratch again.
What pattern or design would you do on your kitchen mixer? Do me a favour and pin this bad boy to any of your Pinterest boards.
