You all know how much I love my Cricut. Now that I have gotten pretty comfortable with it, I find I am using it all the time. I have the Cricut Explore Air and you can read about it by clicking Cricut Explore Air™“. Of  course I had to make some DIY Christmas Ornaments. Being a crafter my friends and family expect handmade from me-which I love-but there is just a little pressure. One year I had a really busy time around my Dad’s birthday and I actually bought him a card, instead of making him one.  He definitely was not happy to see the bought card! I think it was the first time in about 5 years that I bought one. That won’t happen again! This year I decided to start early with my crafting. Christmas Ornaments are something I love to make because you can really tailor it to the recipient.  Here is the finished project:

Here is what you need so you can make your own:


Clear Ornaments-Glass or Plastic (I found plastic at The Dollar Store)

Snow Beads (The Dollar Store)



Cricut Machine

I have a couple good friends who love deer and Cricut Access has so many great selections. I ended up choosing a deer head and a standing deer. I used gold adhesive vinyl for one and pink glitter vinyl for the second.  Add a pretty ribbon for hanging and you are done.

Of course my mind is racing with ideas. Elmo for my great niece, a horse for my friend, maybe a wine bottle for my sister.   My daughter and her friends love, LOVE, The Walking Dead. They actually get together every Sunday night to watch it as a group, which I think is so cool. I plan to make them each a Walking Dead Ornament again using vinyl and the Cricut.
