Does anyone else immediately think of extravagant cupcake displays when you see those cute and trendy farmhouse tiered trays, or is that just me?
You know those 3-tier trays that are popping up at Hobby Lobby in galvanized metal and white enamel and just beg to be filled with fluffy frosted cupcakes, but instead are decorated with inedible seasonal decor?
Tiered farmhouse trays like this:
These trays are super cute (and calorie-free!), but they’re also REALLY easy to decorate for different holidays and incorporate some cute seasonal items into your farmhouse decor.

How to Make a Mini Decorative Cutting Board for your Fall Farmhouse Tray Decor
Step 1: Import the FREE Fall Cutting File to Design Space.
Adjust the size of the SVG to fit the size of the cutting board that you are using. You should size the SVG to be about a quarter of an inch shorter the the edge of your cutting board.
Step 2: Load vinyl and cut the FREE Fall SVG file with your Cricut.
Once you’ve got the SVG sized to match your cutting board, select make in Design Space. Adjust the settings to vinyl, and load the Oracle 651 (permanent vinyl) to your machine on the blue light grip mat. Then, just hit “Go” and let your Cricut cut the cute Fall SVG!
Step 3: Now it’s time to “weed”.
After your design is cut, it’s time to weed the vinyl off and away from the Fall Farmer’s Market design. Use your weeding tool (the one that looks like a dentist pick), and carefully peel the excess vinyl away. Don’t forget about the small parts inside all of the enclosed letters, like “a” and “o”.
Step 4: Transfer the Fall vinyl design to transfer tape.
After you’re done weeding all of the design, cut a piece of transfer tape large enough to cover the entire design. Transfer tape is your best friend if you’re a Cricut owner, because it allows you to get the design off of the vinyl and on to your super cute project.
Apply the transfer tape to your fall vinyl design using pressure with the scraper tool, or you can also use an old credit card. To do this, turn the entire design face down (vinyl part) on top of the transfer tape, and gently scrape across the top.
After the vinyl fall design has been transferred to your transfer tape, turn the entire design facing downwards and begin gently pulling the vinyl’s plastic backing off and away from the transfer paper.
Step 5: Transfer the Fall design to your mini cutting board decor.
Position the vinyl on the transfer tape in the middle of your mini cutting board. Make sure to get it straight, because there’s no going back! Once you’re completely happy with the location of the design, apply pressure and smooth over the design using the scraper tool.
Then, slowly remove the transfer tape by very carefully rolling it away and off the cutting board. The vinyl will remain on your Fall Cricut project, and you’ll have a cute mini cutting board for your Fall farmhouse tray decor!
Just add ribbon of your choice to the cutting board handle, and you’re done!
These cute Fall Cricut projects would be GREAT to make and sell at craft fairs! Or, you could even give it as a gift with a farmhouse tiered tray and some other fall decor… kind of like a “build your own fall farmhouse tray” gift!
