I think no matter who you are, what you believe in, or where you live, it’s safe to say that we are all celebrating that we have survived 2020! It’s been a long year of frustrations across the globe.

I don’t know about you, but my philosophy is that I try to always look at the bright side and the majority of the time that means I craft! So I decided to give you a short tutorial on how to create your own “We Survived 2020” DIY Ornament:

Here’s what you need to make your own DIY Ornament:

If filling with glitter:

If filling with paint:

  • Funnel
  • Cup, for excess paint

To fill with glitter:

  1. Remove the tops from the ornaments.
  2. Pour a small amount of Glitter It into the ornament and slowly swirl around until the inside is coated.
  3. Remove the excess Glitter It by pouring into a cup.
  4. Using a funnel, pour glitter into the ornament and shake around until completely coated.
  5. Tap the ornament upside down over a different cup to remove excess glitter.
  6. If a thicker coat of glitter inside the ornament is desired, allow the ornament to dry and repeat the previous steps.
  7. Once the glue is dry, replace the cap.

To fill with paint:

  1. Remove the tops from the ornaments.
  2. Pour a small amount of paint into the ornament and slowly swirl around until the inside is coated.

Open the Cricut Design Studio and create a new project.

Upload your design to the Cricut Design Studio.

Select to remove the background of the image (if needed) and save as a cut file.

Insert the image into your project and select your desired print color to help organize the cuts.

If all of the details of your ornament will be the same color, click and drag to select the elements for the ornament and select to weld the items together. 

Select the image and size to match the dimensions of the ornament.

Cut the images from vinyl. 

Weed the excess vinyl away and then use transfer tape to move the designs to the ornament.

Press firmly or swipe over the transfer tape with a scraper to make sure the vinyl adheres to the ornament.

Pull the transfer tape away.

That’s it!! A SUPER easy DIY Ornament to create if you’re a newbie Cricut user or a seasoned pro.

Either way, you and anyone that receives one will love it!
