Make your own Cricut glass music plaque with a Spotify song code with this detailed step by step tutorial and FREE Spotify glass art SVG file!
Have you seen the Spotify glass art DIY signs all over TikTok? I started seeing them and knew I needed to make one.
And I’m so glad I did! It was a quick, easy, and cheap project especially since I used an old frame. So no money spent! Bonus!
These Cricut glass music plaques would make perfect sentimental gifts for almost anyone. Think birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, baby gifts, Christmas, etc. Everyone has a favorite song or a song that reminds them of a certain event in their life.
I made a music plaque as a fun reminder of a Mother Daughter trip to NYC I took with my 16 year old. We love musicals and were so excited to see Hamilton on Broadway.
So, I found an old frame, printed out a picture, chose a song from Spotify and made a SVG file to use and put this together. And when you scan the code in Spotify it plays a song from Hamilton!

How to Get Spotify Codes
As I mentioned before, the super cool thing about these signs is that when the code is scanned on the Spotify app, the song will play. So, how do you get the Spotify barcode?
It’s actually super easy! I have a full video tutorial of all these steps too so make sure to watch it if it seems confusing. It’s at the top of the post or the side!
First, go into the Spotify app on your computer and search for the song you want to use.
Next to the song there will be three dots. Click on those and you’ll get a drop-down menu. Go down to Share and then over to click on Copy Song Link.
Then go to spotifycodes.com and paste the code into the white opening. I just right click and then choose paste. Click on Get Spotify Code.
Then this screen will pop up. You’ll notice there are three different formats you can save – SVG, PNG, and JPG. If you watch the video at the top or the side, you’ll see what happens when I try to upload the SVG (a few parts are missing).
So I save it as a PNG. I change the background color to white and then the Bar color to black to help with cleanup in CDS.
So below is what my screen looks like. Click Download.
Uploading Spotify Code to Cricut Design Space
So now go into Cricut Design Space. On a new canvas, click on Upload on the left side and then Browse. Find the spotify code PNG that you just downloaded and click on it and then on Open.
Since it’s a PNG, we need to clean it up a big. Click on Simple and then on Continue.
Make sure the wand is selected at the top and then with your cursor click on all the white space. So the background and then the three lines in the Spotify icon.
Click continue and then click on the image on the right side that says Save as a Cut Image. Then click Save at the bottom.
Insert it into your canvas along with the free Spotify forward backward SVG file I have at the bottom of this post.
The file has both the play button and the pause button. Click on the file and then click on Ungroup at the top left. Delete whichever button you don’t want.
Select the rest of the file by using your cursor to put a box around them and click Group.
If you don’t want any text, select all and Align to Center Horizontally. Then click Attach.
Size it fit your plaque or sign!
If you want the name of the song and people in the picture, add a text box and insert your text. Then you can align the text and bottom image to the left and group them together.
And then select all and align Center horizontally and click Attach. Again all of this is in the video!
Weed off the extra vinyl. I’m not gonna lie, this was the hardest part for me. Those little bars kept coming up so I had to hold them down while I weeded.
Put a piece of transfer tape over the vinyl and scrape it down well.
Putting the Music Sign Together
I printed a photo I had and matted it on cardstock. Then I put it under the glass of a matted frame that I had. You can put it on top or put it in an acrylic holder, whatever you want.
Make sure to clean the glass, I use rubbing alcohol and let it dry. Then it’s time to put the vinyl barcode on.
Then I lift it up, remove the backing and place it back down. Scrape it down well and then peel off the transfer tape.
That’s it! Now use your Spotify app on your phone to scan the barcode and your song will play. (Find the scanner in the search screen. Click on the search line and a little camera will pop up next to the search bar. Click on that and scan the code).
FREE Spotify Glass Art SVG File
I made two different buttons you can choose from. One is the pause and the other is the play button. Once you download it and then upload into Cricut Design Space, delete whichever one you don’t want.
