I need some input from all you DIY brides who have experience with the Cricut or other cutting machine. We want to have our seating chart on a window. Originally we were going to have my cousin (who has great hand writing) write out the names but then I was thinking I could cut the names out of vinyl and stick them to the window so it was neat and uniform looking.
Does anyone have experience doing this? Will it be a pain in the ass? Should I just stick with having my cousin write out the names?

my mom uses a cricut for scrapbooking so i am familiar with them.
to me, you are describing a seating chart that is on a board, but instead it is on a window.
i see no issue with this. just make sure it is clear enough for everyone to know what table they are at.

I don’t have experience with the cricut exactly but I would still advise against going with this method. I had about to transfer about 5 vinyl words onto a mirror for one of my decor peices and it was a pain in the butt! I can’t imagine doing it for every single guest and agonizing over the perfect placement then worrying if the letters will rip as I’m pulling off the contact paper. Ugh.
I’d just let your cousin try it out first with one of those chalkboard pens/markers and see if you like it. If not, you can wash it off and go with another method.

I think it’ll depend on the level of diy you’re comfortable with. Do you diy often or will this be new to you. The pp mentioned having a hard time with it, and I agree it might be frustrating if this is new to you. However, I have a cricut and will be using it for my invites and lots of my decor, and I don’t find it be difficult at all. If you do decide to use the cricut make sure to use transfer paper as well and watch some youtube videos for tips and tricks.
