5 Super Simple DIY Christmas Ornaments With The Cricut

5 Super Simple DIY Christmas Ornaments With The Cricut

DIY Christmas ornaments are super simple and so much fun to make. I love seeing my family and friends’ reaction to all the ornaments I’ve been making. Whether it is to gift, sell, or even keep for yourself these DIY ornaments will be so much fun to make.

  1. Santa Cam Glitter Ornaments

Materials-

Clear Ornaments
Polyacrylic
Glitter
Syringe
Wide angle smartphone lens (Dollar Tree)
Permanent Vinyl
Transfer Tape
Cricut Machine
Standard Grip Mat
Cricut Tools
Hot glue gun

                I use a syringe and put the polyacrylic into the ornament. I swirl it around so that it covers the whole inside of the ornament. I carefully allow it to pour the excess out back into the can. I then place it upside down in a small cup to dry. I let it sit for about 5-10 min making sure that the excess has completely drained out.

Using a small funnel dump some of the glitter into the ornament. Its okay to put a lot, the excess will be put back into the bottle. Swirl the glitter around so that it sticks to the whole ornament. Put your thumb or hold some paper towel over the opening and give the ornament a little shake to try to get the whole surface covered in glitter. Dump the excess glitter back into the container. I shake it and gently hit it with my finger to get any glitter that isn’t stuck out.

I hot glued the camera part into the middle of my ornament.

I used my Cricut to cut out the words Santa Cam on permanent vinyl and with transfer tape I put the words onto my ornament.

 

  1. Snow Globe Ornaments

 

Materials-

Snow globe Ornament
Mini figure
Fake Snow
Sparkly Ribbon
Funnel
Hot Glue Gun
Permanent vinyl
transfer tape
Cricut Machine
Standard Grip Mat
Cricut tools

                

I bought the ornament, mini figure, fake snow, ribbon, and funnel all at the Dollar Tree! I started with the little figure and positioned it on the bottom lid of the upside down mason jar looking ornament. I didn’t like how low it sat so I actually hot glued it onto a small water bottle cap. I then glued the cap to the lid of the ornament.

I then hot glued the lid back onto the ornament. I didn’t want little hands opening up the lid and the fake snow going everywhere.

Once the lid was on tight, I opened up the top silver part of the ornament. With the funnel I dumped a little bit of the fake snow into the ornament. And put the top back on.

I cut a name and 2020 out of permanent vinyl and used transfer tape to put the name and year onto the ornament.

I hot glued the ribbon around the bottom lid of the ornament.

               

  1. Wood Ornaments

Materials-

                Wood Round ornaments
                 Glitter Iron-On Vinyl
                Cricut Machine
                Standard Grip Mat
                Cricut Tools
                EasyPress Mini

 In Design Space I created my design or found some premade ones I liked. I used my Cricut to cut out the Glitter Iron-on Vinyl (Mirror!)

I used my EasyPress Mini to heat transfer the design to the ornament.

Super simple but I love the look of the wood with the Glitter iron-on vinyl.

 

  1. Filled Ornaments

Materials-

                Clear ornament
                Eraser tops
                Permanent vinyl
                Transfer Tape
                Cricut Machine
                Standard Grip Mat
                Cricut tools

I started by taking the top off of the ornament and filling it with the little erasers.

I found the image for my words in Design Space. I like to make a 3inch circle on my canvas to figure out how big I should make my design.

Cut it out on permanent vinyl. It was a little hard to weed because of the tiny letters and swirls but I just took my time and was able to do it.

Then I cut a piece of transfer tape the same size as my design. I placed it onto the vinyl and pealed the backing. The trick for laying the vinyl on a rounded surface is to cut slits into the sides of the transfer tape (don’t cut the vinyl though).

Then I laid it on the ornament. Starting in the middle I used my fingers to gently push the vinyl onto the ornament. When it was adhered I carefully pulled off the transfer tape.

  1. Floating Ornaments

Materials-

                Clear ornament
                Transparency film or laminated sheet
                Fake snow
                Permanent Vinyl
                Transfer Tape
                Cricut Machine
                Standard grip mat
                Cricut Tools

 

I first put a small laminating sheet into my laminator. So it was a clear sheet. You could also use transparency film for this.

In design Space I created a circle that was 2.8 inches. Then I inserted a square and made it a tiny notch at the top of the circle. I welded these two shapes together. This is to help it stay in place.

I had the Cricut cut this out of my laminating sheet

I then had the Cricut cut my image from the vinyl and used transfer tape to put it on the laminated circle.

I rolled the laminate circle and inserted it into the clear ornament. Be sure to keep the little notch to the top of the ornament.

I used a funnel to put the fake snow in the ornament. I put the top back on the ornament and done!

 

 

There are so many possibilities that you can do with all of these ornaments. Have you made a version of any of these? What was your variety? Let us know!

 

*Of course I talk to myself when crafting. I need expert advice.
