DIY Christmas Ornaments with the Cricut (Explore & Maker Friendly Project)

I can’t believe I’m already thinking about the Holidays! Where has this year gone?  I want to get things ready a little ahead of time so I can sit back, sip eggnog and enjoy the kiddos this holiday season, so I went ahead and created this year’s personalized ornaments!

I am still working on those flannel scraps and decided to put them to use with an embroidery hoop!

To step it up a notch, I decided to create some wonky stitching around the edges, but this step is totally optional.

I think the stitching adds a little character and the handmade look, which I love.

I used a little HeatNBond, applied with the Cricut EasyPress to apply the canvas letters.  You can see I reversed it on the letter D and used the flannel for the letter and the canvas for the background.

It’s a really easy way to create personalized ornaments for co-workers, family and friends!

Simply add an elastic string to the hoop closure and a little hot glued bow and voila… you’re all done!  On to the next project.
