Cricut Crafts for Christmas: Custom Wood Trees

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

I love to make personalized hostess gifts during the holidays – but you and I both know time becomes an issue and by the time Christmas rolls around I’ve resorted to store bought candles and tins of popcorn. Not this year! These personalized wood Christmas trees can be done in batches, then you can add a name in just a few minutes and be the most thoughtful guest at any party this year! {FTC Disclaimer: this post is sponsored by Cricut but the project and opinions are mine all mine!

CRICUT CRAFTS FOR CHRISTMAS: CUSTOM WOOD TREES

Consider this my big holiday tip this year. GET THE EASYPRESS MINI!!!! This little dynamo is perfect for little projects, but it is also just what you need for bigger projects that use intricate iron-on letters or temperamental materials – in this case painted wood. It is portable, lightweight and cute as can be. It would make a great Christmas gift for your favorite crafter (coughcough*you*coughcough)!

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

TUTORIAL: HOW TO MAKE PERSONALIZED WOOD TREES WITH CRICUT

  1. Cut board In to five pieces – 2.5”, 4.5”, 6.5”, 8.5” and 10.5”. Sand the edges if needed and use spray paint to cover.

2. I’ve saved this file in Cricut Design Space so you just need to change the name to create your own! I created the green rectangles as a canvas so be sure to hide them before cutting.

3. Cut each image/phrase on Cricut machine – don’t forget to mirror your mat and put your material shiny side down!

Star – gold glitter iron-on
A Very Merry Christmas – white everyday iron-on
Family name – red glitter iron-on

4. Cut the white iron-on phrases in to strips before applying to wood blocks.

5. Use the Cricut Heat Guide to determine the correct heat/time (in this case it was the medium setting) and apply images/phrases to blocks. You can use any size EasyPress but I love using the EasyPress Mini for intricate projects like this because I can use the pointed edge to make sure every little piece gets heated. It is also super helpful when working with wood because the surface isn’t uniformly flat so if I used a larger EasyPress the heat might not be distributed evenly.

6. Stack your blocks and enjoy!
