I love how simple this DIY Scandinavian house Cricut craft is! It’s such a fun Dollar Tree craft for Christmas.
DIY Scandinavian House
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I am having such a blast making Christmas decorations this year, I can’t stop. Today, I sat down and made this really simple set of DIY Scandinavian houses from Dollar Tree materials and I just could not be happier!
They’re super easy – only took me about 15 minutes, but look so cute on my tiered tray. Grab your paint and let’s get started.

Tips to Make this Dollar Tree Craft
- If you want the little Dala horse, click here for the cut file set. You can use any of the three horse designs there or use them all and make 3 little houses!
- For the little decorations around the edge of the house shapes, I think a paint pen might have been the best option. I couldn’t locate mine, but they might have been a better option.
- I got all of the supplies I needed from the Dollar Tree, so this is definitely a Dollar Tree craft. But the truth is, you could find supplies at any craft store, so just grab what you need wherever you are! LOL!
How Do I Make this DIY Scandinavian House?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Acrylic Paint in Red and White
- Black Marker, Chalk Pen or Paint Pens (recommended)
- White Permanent Vinyl
- Dala Horse Cut File
- 2 Wood Houses (I found mine at Dollar Tree)
- Paint Brushes
- Light Grip Mat
- Weeding Tools
- Scraper Tool
- Transfer Tape
- Paint the wood red or white, as desired. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Using the black marker or black paint pen, add a decorative edge to the white house shape. Using the white chalk pen or white paint pen, add a decorative edge to the red house shape.
- Download the SVG file and upload it to Design Space. Size the selected horse design to fit within the face of the sign.
- Hit the "make it" button then place the vinyl onto the cutting mat and load the mat into the cutting machine.
- Adjust the material setting to vinyl and hit “go”.
- Remove the negative vinyl from the design and discard.
- Cut a piece of transfer paper about the size of your vinyl design and place the transfer paper on top of the vinyl. With the scraper tool, rub the vinyl design to ensure that the vinyl affixes will to the transfer paper.
- Flip the vinyl and transfer paper face-down and begin to gently remove the vinyl backing off, leaving the vinyl design on the transfer paper.
- Position the vinyl design and transfer tape on the face of your house. Take care to position it lightly on top of the wood sign and do not smooth down.
- Once you are happy with the location of the design, begin to apply pressure and smooth the design onto the wood using a scraper tool or old gift card.
- Slowly peel the transfer paper away starting at a corner and very carefully rolling it up and away from the wood. The vinyl will stay on the house. Then it's time to display!
