Last year my wonderful husband got me a Cricut Explore Air for Christmas. But I had a really hard time with it at first. It wasn’t until the following August that I found out it wasn’t just user error but I actually had a bad machine. The customer service team at Cricut was amazing and got my Cricut replaced. Now I love using it!

Christmas Countdown

The first Cricut Christmas project I did was an advent Christmas Countdown. Using a gold frame from the Dollar Tree, I cut permanent vinyl numbers 1-25 and some Christmas graphics. If you try this Cricut Christmas craft, remember to mirror the cut! That way you can stick the numbers and graphics on the inside of the glass frame. This prevents the Christmas decal from peeling and allows you to cross off each date as it passes; making this a dry erase Christmas Countdown. Don’t forget to choose some cardstock to place in the frame so you can see the numbers and graphics.

Cricut Christmas Mugs

The next Cricut Christmas Project I did was to personalize a Christmas mug for R. She asked for a simple “Merry Christmas” on her white Dollar Tree mug. I spiced it up by getting some rainbow sparkle permanent vinyl. With handwashing and not putting the mug directly in the microwave, this Cricut Christmas craft should last for many Christmases.

Cricut Christmas Door Mat Project

I used cardstock as a stencil for this cute Christmas welcome mat. Guess where I found this plain mat?! If you guessed Dollar Tree, you’ve been paying attention! Initially I spray painted white over the stencil and tape. That didn’t leave as sharp an image as I wanted. So I went back in with a paintbrush and acrylic paint to sharpen it and add some pops of color. (Did you know Cricut makes vinyl especially made for making stencils? I’ll have to check out

Watch me Whip oven mitt

Michelle from OurCraftyMom made an oven mitt into a goodie bag filled with baking supplies. I’ve received something like this as a gift and it was so loved, but I find her “Watch Me Whip” graphic adorable!

I love the idea of reusable gift bags. Sonja and Jane from SustainMyCraftHabit made a super cute drawstring gift bag using some iron-on and their Easy Press.

Santa's Magic Key sign

R is super excited that our house has a fireplace with a chimney for Santa. If you don’t have one, this “Santa’s Magic Key” from ACountryGirlsLife would be a fun Cricut Christmas project.

Isabelle from PrintYourStory made some simple gift tags with her Cricut. The best part is her SVG is free!

DIY felt ornaments

I would love to try some of these felt ornaments from Albion Gould. I don’t have a Cricut Maker unfortunately…maybe I can use this SVG with cardstock!
