The jolly season is upon us but it's a bit hard to get festive when you live in the southern hemisphere and it's literally an average of 30 degrees (86 Fahrenheit) but we can make things a little festive with these cute tree ornaments.
I made some ornaments as a gift for someone and my mum said "how'd you make those, why didn't you make any for our tree" so here I am; taking you on this journey with me while I make some cute Christmas stocking stuffers for loved ones.
First, you're going to have to get your ornaments, you can use a round ornament or anything you like. I'm using an acrylic ornament which seems to really be the trend this Christmas. The Cricut Explore Air 2 machine is able to cut vinyl stickers for many surfaces and that's what I'll be using today.
To make the designs I drew it on my iPad with the iPencil using the Procreate app. This app can be purchased from the Apple app store for about $10.00. I think it's the most popular app for writing for calligraphers.
I then took the designs to Cricut Design Space to cut the vinyl designs. If you're not aware of the process on how to make vinyls, you can go back to my previous blog post where I give a step by step on how to use the machine and program. Learn more about the Cricut here.
Once I cut and weeded my design, I applied it to transfer tape and proceeded to center it onto the bauble.
I love my Cricut because it allows me to get creative and make little thoughtful gifts for the people that I care about. The crafter in me is screaming because there are so many possibilities of things that I can make.
Wishing everyone a very merry christmas and happy new year!
Love and light,
