Ornaments are to Christmas like Fireworks are to the Fourth of July. They have been decorating our trees for hundreds of years. They first started in the 16th century as small decorations that eventually bloomed into the amazing holiday displays we see every year. Fun Family Christmas Tree Decorating Traditions are important and I want to make sure my kids have that growing up. Cricut ornaments were this year’s tradition!

Cricut Machine Excitement!

When I first got my Cricut machine, I knew that it was a game-changer. I am a craft lover and I enjoy getting my kids involved in a project. As Christmas is fast approaching I decided that my two favorite things could come together in perfect harmony. Here is how we made our personalized Cricut ornaments for Christmas.

What Supplies You Will Need for Cricut Ornaments:

You can pick up your supplies from the stores you have in your area. I utilize hobby and craft stores for my items. You can also grab these online if you don’t have the stores near you!

Clear Plastic Ornament

I chose ornaments that are non-breakable. Especially because I am crafting with kids, this style is very important to me. Mine are top-fill, but as long as they are “fillable” you can create these personalized Cricut ornaments.

Cricut Machine

This is a tutorial that involves the Cricut machine and its lettering abilities. You can find basic crafting letters to attach, but I highly recommend trying out this fantastic tool if you are a crafter. It is a real game-changer.

Cricut Red Sparkle Vinyl

I love this sparkly vinyl for the machine. Of course, you can choose whichever colors fit your Christmas decoration scheme, but this one caught my eye. I knew it would compliment the colors inside of my personalized Cricut ornaments.

Sticky Transfer Tape

For transferring the vinyl, you will need the transfer tape. It is the best way to get a clean finish on the font when attaching to the ornaments.

How to Make Cricut Ornaments

Gather your friends or family around for a Christmas crafting party. Making ornaments with friends is a wonderful way to spend quality time and create memories. You can even have this crafting party with a hot chocolate toppings bar to house a cozy gathering.

Step One: Separate the Supplies

You can create small bowls for everyone to have their own or share nicely!

Grab a handful of snowballs and get ready to fill up your ornament!

  • Place items into bowls to make it easy for everyone to pick the items that they want to add in their Cricut ornaments.
  • You can separate out the colors if that would make decorating easier for your crew.
  • Have enough bowls spread around to make it easy for everyone to get the supplies they need.

Step Two: Get the Snowballs!

  • Add the snowballs into the ornament.
  • These are the tiny, white, puff-balls and are easiest to get into the filling holes of the Cricut ornament.
  • Once the other items are added they will be easy to mix into each other. 

Step Three: Layer in the Pom-Poms
