Welcome to Have Yourself A Very Cricut Christmas: 25 Days of Homemade Holiday Crafts!

Each day in December, I’ll be sharing a new Christmas project that you can make using your Cricut. It’s going to be a blog version of an advent calendar! Come back every day to get a new “gift.”

Today’s gift is a Let It Snow Ornament.

If you’ve ever seen a picture of our Christmas tree, you will know that I have a thing for Christmas ornaments. I love to collect them! We have a wide variety of ornaments, but I also love to make new ornaments each year that we can add to our tree.

I also love the look of custom calligraphy on ornaments. But, I’ve never been the best at calligraphy myself. You can create the look of calligraphy by using a calligraphy font and some vinyl.

You’re going to love this Let It Snow Ornament. Here’s how to make it!

Make It

Now it’s time to make your project!

Click on the Make It button in the upper right of the screen.

The first screen you will see is the Mat Preview Screen. This will show you all of the different mats needed for your project. Each mat represents another piece of material.

For this project, there is only one material being used.

Pressure: Default

Tools: Fine-Point Blade

Load the strong grip cutting mat with the adhesive foil material into the machine. Then, press the flashing Go button to begin the cutting process.

How to Assemble The Project

Once all of your pieces are cut out, it’s time to assemble the project.

First, you will need to weed the adhesive foil design to remove the extra material. The goal is to leave only the adhesive foil for the design image behind.

Use the weeder tool to pick up the foil off of the backing and easily remove it. After all of the extra foil is removed, you should be left with just the design on the backing.

Next, take a piece of transfer tape and place it over the entire design. I like to use these big rolls of transfer tape and cut it to the size of my design.

Smooth down the transfer tape with your hand or using the scraper tool.

Then, flip over the design and peel backing away from the design. If the transfer tape is stuck properly, the adhesive foil will be attached to the transfer tape and will peel off of the backing.

But, if you are having problems with it sticking properly, flip the design over again and try to put more pressure on the transfer tape to get the adhesive foil to stick.

Next, place the transfer tape with the foil design onto the front of the clear plastic ornament.

Use your hand, starting in the center, to transfer the vinyl from the transfer tape onto the ornament.

It can be slightly difficult to get the foil to stick to a curved surface, so work slowly. Sometimes it gets bent slightly or doesn’t lay right.

If that happens, just use the weeder tool to pick up the foil and place it as needed. I had to use scissors to cut my foil design so it would lay better on the ornament.

Then, take one corner of the transfer tape and peel it back and away from your design. If the adhesive foil is stuck properly, the transfer tape will peel right off leaving the design behind.

Next, you will need to fill your ornament with white glitter.

Remove the top of the plastic ornament. Then take a piece of scrap paper and roll it to create a funnel.

Pour the white glitter into the ornament to fill part of the bottom. Then, put the ornament top back on. You can add a piece of ribbon to the top of the ornament if you want.
