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

hoop ornament-23

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.

Etched Glass with the Cricut Maker

New shot-1

I have always wanted to try etching glass, and today I did just that!  I don’t know why I waited so long!  It’s easy, fun and very inexpensive!

New shot-6

I used the Cricut Maker to cut out Premium Permanent Vinyl to use as my stencil.  I don’t recommend using removeable vinyl and it doesn’t stick as well and the etching creme can easily seep underneath your design (ask me how I know).  You will also want to pick up a bottle of Armour Etch.  It will last you forever, because most of it goes right back in the bottle after you use it.

New shot-4

With the holidays right around the corner, I’m always looking for gift ideas for stockings, hostess gifts and small gifts for friends.  You could easily make wine glasses, casserole dishes, candy dishes, vases, canisters… whatever fits your gift recipient’s needs.  I thought the shot glasses would also be a fun bachelor party gift, or newly engaged couple gift or even a shower gift.

I have included a step by step tutorial for you.  It’s really easy!  Try it!

Cricut Fusible Fabric!

Cricut Fusible-1

Hey there!  Have you heard the great news?  Cricut now has FUSIBLE FABRIC!  What is fusible fabric?  Well it’s cotton fabric that already has a fusible product on the back so that with the use of an iron or the Cricut EasyPress you can make your very own fabric applique projects!

Cricut Fusible-5

I wanted to make a little Cricut care package for a friend, so I cut out a Cricut “C” with my Cricut Maker and applied it with the EasyPress.  It was so easy and so fast to make this adorable miniature tote bag!

Cricut Fusible-3

Hint… you can find this Cricut Logo in the Cricut Library.. just search “Cricut”.

Cricut Fusible-2

There are tons of varieties of colors.  Each roll of Fusible Fabric comes with four different designs.  Here are some of the choices available:

Maker Hoop-2

Have you celebrated the Maker in YOU?  There is a Maker inside each and every one of us, and I think it’s time we applaud our everyday creative selves!

Maker Hoop-6

It just so happens, I made this maker project with my Cricut Maker!  How Cool is that!?!!?

It’s crazy easy and a really fun addition to your craft area.  I made another one for Evie’s bedroom with her name on it.

Maker Hoop-5

I mean.. hello???  You can make this in any color scheme, any word, any occasion and it just adds that little bit of homemade magic to any room.  I used HeatnBond Fusible Adhestive to add the letters that I cut out with the Cricut Maker.  The Cricut Easy press made applying it super easy!  Did you know Cricut now has fabric with the Fusible product already on it?  They Do!  You can find it here!

This is a super easy project!  You can view this video to find out how to make the letters and this video to find out how to make the flowers.

Planner / Journal Pen Holder with Cricut Maker

Today, I have a really fun and super easy project for you!

Pretty fun, right?!!  These are super easy to put together and great for beginner sewists, like me!

The best part is, you can customize them to fit any planner and/or color preference.

You can see on this one I wanted to add a little color to my Heidi Swapp Gold Polka Dot planner, so I added Coral and Teal.  Dreamy!

I just love it!

How about this combo?  Florals are kinda my go to theme!

 Which is your favorite?

I would love to see what combinations you make!  I made a video for you, you knew I would!  I think these would be really fun to personalize with the Cricut Easy Press!

If you’re a Cricut Maker User, you can grab the Design Spacefile here and cut it out with your Maker.  Don’t have a Cricut Maker, no worries.  You can cut this pattern by hand!  It’s super easy.

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave me a comment and let me know what colors you’re making!
