We found an old unused picture frame, placed gold cardstock behind it, and then chalkboard vinyl over the glass. It worked perfectly! The center piece is obviously where we can put the number of days till Christmas.
It could possibly make a fun early Christmas present, but besides that, it’s great for generating Christmas cheer in the home!
This is a great way to add a personalized and special touch to your Christmas tree this season! Acrylic ornament blanks like the ones pictured below are inexpensive and another festive choice. Cricut Access has lots of fun SVG files for ornaments!
Personalized gifts are always a hit and easy to make. The ornament below was made with the Cricut Joy and is a super easy DIY project. Just make sure the adhesive side of the vinyl shows the same pretty pattern as the front for a see through ornament like this one.
Ornaments are so fun we can’t stop! The design below is one of about 30 we made for friends and neighbors featuring their house number and street. They’re a cute addition to everyone’s holiday decor without breaking the bank.
I love to find new and unique project ideas that will inspire us to get crafting!
This personalized Christmas truck would make a cute addition to your Christmas decor. This video tutorial is from Nasayi. She uses Cricut iron-on vinyl, and a Silhouette Cameo 3 to make this project (also take a look at the new CAMEO 4).
One could easily buy something like this from the shops, but it adds so much to say you made it yourself. Make custom tops for all the nieces and nephews this Christmas!
17. Christmas T Shirt
Create a Christmas t shirt using iron on transfer paper! There are so many cute designs to choose from, feature a beautiful snowflake, Santa, or a monogram.
Avery transfer paper can be applied with an iron, the EasyPress, or a regular heat press machine. You just print out your clipart onto the transfer paper, and then press it on!
18. Christmas Wood Sign
Know a dog lover? A wood sign like this would make an amazing holiday gift! We made this with adhesive vinyl but you could also go the freezer paper stencil route.
Finding a cut file to match the pup can be time-consuming but it’s doable! Expert Outfit on Etsy is a great source for dog SVGs and you can search by breed. This would also look great on tea towels!
19. Custom Doormat
Making a custom doormat is an awesome way to update your Christmas decorations for the year.
This is easiest to do with either a Maker Cricut machine or the Cricut Explore Air 2 because of the size. It’s more time consuming than some of the other Christmas gift ideas here but is a really fun, crafty project.
20. Custom Wine Tumbler or Insulated Mug
There’s nothing quite as nice as getting a homemade gift that’s personalized just for you!
Making decorative gift tags for your goodies will really take your gift giving to the next level. It’s quick and easy to make the tags and you can do them as cut files like the ones above or written with Cricut pens.
These tags aren’t just for wrapped presents. They would look nice on a gift basket, advent calendar, bottle of wine, or any other hostess gift.
22. DIY Thank You Cards
While we’ve focused on decorations and gifts so far it’s important to remember to always write a nice thank you note!
