Directions For Ornament

To make the circle ornament shape weld together a small square on top of a circle. Add a circle cut and attach to create the hole to thread your hanger of choice.

Beginning to design Happy Holidays Christmas Ornament

Next use I chose Holiday Cake Font to spell out the words Happy and days.
Cutting Christmas Ornament Design with Cricut

The Holly Berries design needed to be sized along with ungrouped to change the color on the berries.
Reverse Weeding Cut Christmas Ornament Design Happy Holidays

 You can see I saved paper by placing the font and berries inside the ornament.
Note* If you were to use vinyl you would reverse the words. I decide to use what I had on hand but, vinyl would be easier to work with as well as add another dimension.

My trees are not up yet since we are celebrating an engagement this weekend. Can you guess what this was before it became a wreath for my wall? It even made appearances at both my daughter in laws shower and our sons wedding.

Cute! I love that it's two-sided - makes it great not only as a tree ornament but on a window, etc. Great project.

Yet another Cricut project to add to my "to do list"! Love it!

Erlene said...

Looks like a fun project to do with a cutting machine. Definitely would make a nice addition on a tree or gift.

Emily said...

Sweet and simple, love it!

What a cute little pun for your ornament! Great job!

How cute. I love that it is 2 sided. It always drives me crazy when I can't get an ornament facing the right side.
