DIY Color Wheel Stool

The Cricut Joy has been a total game changer for me and my crafts. For those who may not know, the Cricut Joy is Cricut's smallest smart cutting machine (and it's portable, too)! This machine gets moved around A LOT in my house, depending on what projects I'm working on in different rooms. I used to put off a lot of projects that required intricate cutting because let's be real, who wants to manually do that? But that's where the Cricut Joy comes in, making projects like these more accessible and easy to do. You can create quick personalized projects for both yourself and others in almost no time. Plus, the Cricut Joy uses Smart Materials that are designed to work without a cutting mat, so there's less materials needed to start making!

Today I'm showing you how I put together this DIY Color Wheel Stool for my craft room using the Cricut Joy. Home Improvement projects like this one have been getting done a lot more thanks to this machine. You can make stencils, decals, labels, and so much more with the Cricut Joy. To learn how to make your own stool just like this one, keep on reading!
