Begin by cutting a bunch of holiday shapes out of felt using your Cricut Maker machine (or scissors).

The Maker’s Adaptive Tool System allows the machine to use several different types of blades, but the rotary blade is the best for cutting felt. It’s super smooth and easy, and it cuts through felt like butter!

Be careful not to use too much glue or it will bleed through to the front side of the felt! Alternately, you can also use felt glue which won’t bleed through, but you’ll still need the craft glue for attaching any additional embellishments!

Add embellishments – rhinestones, sequins, buttons, glitter, paint, etc. to customize each ornament. If you’re making these ornaments with a group, simply spread out all of the assorted supplies and embellishments on your crafting table and let everyone mix, match, and layer to their hearts’ desire!
