12 Christmas Home Décor Projects to Make with a Cricut
That special time of year is getting closer, so it's time to think about what Cricut crafts we can make to decorate our homes for Christmas this year. Many of us have favorites we use each year, but it's so much fun to create new ones to display around our homes, too. Here are 12 Christmas Cricut projects to inspire you and get you started.
Here is a project for a tablecloth you can decorate yourself. Using the silver Glitter Iron-On for this project really makes it look festive. What a great idea to include a design for adults on one end and one for children on the other end that they can actually play with. The beauty of this tablecloth is that nobody else will have one exactly the same - unless, of course, you are asked to make one like it for someone else (or if someone copies it, which would be a great compliment).
Do you need some Christmas decorations but are pressed for time? These cute Christmas trees could not be simpler. You only need some Cricut Kraftboard and your Cricut, and you're set to go. At the end of the season, you can take the trees apart and store them flat. I'd like to make some of these with different shades of green for a display, or even try using some patterned cardstock. These instructions are in video format.
Look at this beautiful picture done in layers! I love the 3D effect of each layer placed within a cradled wood panel. Use a variety of techniques and media with this project, including painting, gluing, decoupage and cutting with your Cricut. You will be proud to display the final result once it is completed.
Do you make your own Christmas cards? If you do, this post can give you some great ideas for what to say inside them. I love the vintage sentiments here. There are also 5 suggested combinations of Cricut paper and pens that would make great cards. The post practically does everything for you except for actually cutting and writing with your Cricut, which is the most fun part anyway. Check it out for new inspiration this Christmas.
Check out these three Christmas projects that all use the Cricut Foil Transfer Tool. It seems like the perfect time to try something new. There is a photo frame insert, some gift tags and a card. Just watching the video makes me want to get started using this tool. These projects look so fancy but are not hard to do.
Such cute little Christmas trees! These are simply made with Styrofoam cones and paper. You can switch them up by using different colors and patterns of paper and could even vary the size of the trees. It would be so easy to cut the paper strips using a Cricut. I like the idea of using a different design for each tree, but you could make yours all the same, if you want.
Who ever heard of a candle shade? I never had until I saw this project, and I loved it! One thing I really like is the idea of using a piece of glass from a thrift store. Each shade you make can be one-of-a-kind. Put any design you like on it using your Cricut and some vinyl. It looks so pretty with the candle flame showing through the glass.
Here is a way to decorate your child's room with their favorite character or toy. Use your Cricut machine and removable vinyl to make a stencil, apply it to a frame or tray, and fill in the background with chalk or another medium. Then just remove the stencil, and you have a picture to display in their room. I love the look of the chalk on the chalkboard sign for this project.
If you have not used infusible ink before, this would be a great project to start out with. The ink sticks right on the sublimation coasters, and they are so cute! You don't need a fancy design, just something simple. How fun to have coasters to use for Christmas or other holidays. You could even put a family name on them for a personalized gift. Watch the video to see how to do it.
This project looks fancy, but it is actually quite simple to make. Choose any Christmas design to cut out of fabric with your Cricut Maker or use bonded fabric with your Explore. Then apply it to a wooden pallet, add embellishments, and you're done. There can be as many different variations as there are fabrics and designs. Make several for family members, and each one can be unique.
Have you ever made a gift basket for someone for Christmas? This would be a perfect idea for someone you don't know well or for an anonymous recipient. This video post includes four Cricut craft projects you can make to put in a gift basket, including a mug, a coffee jar, a candle and a tea towel.
This is such a cute idea, and you could use any Christmas-related word to make a sign like this, preferably one with an 'O' in it. I love the jingle bell inside the cut-out where the 'O' would normally go. This project uses a Cricut to cut vinyl for use as a stencil to paint the letters onto the wood. The red stands out so nicely on the white paint.
I don't know about you, but this makes me want to get going and start making things for Christmas. It's never too early, as time seems to fly as it gets closer. The only problem will be deciding which one of these projects to make or how to change one up to make it our own.
It's all fun and games until the vinyl runs out.
