Deck the Halls With Cricut This Season!


Christmas is my second favorite holiday, especially when it comes to decorating. My creativity tends to sky rocket when this time of year hits. Whether i'm thinking about homemade decor or gift projects for family and friends, I always have a project on my mind. Cricut products make my product dreams a reality and make them much easier to accomplish, reducing a little bit of the holiday stress of trying to get everything accomplished.

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



Since getting my Cricut Explore Air 2, I've had projects galore running through my head. Most of which were perfect for the holidays. I'm still kind of learning all the things my machine can do (and it's a lot, which is really amazing), but between the machine and my Cricut EasyPress2 I've been able to get a lot more of my projects accomplished this season. 


For instance, my 'Mom's Cup of Cheer' mug was made using Cricut products. I was able to design the whole thing in the free Cricut Design Space app from my phone and have it sent to Cricut Explore Air 2 to be cut into vinyl completely wirelessly. 


I really wanted to make the kiddos a 'Santa's Cookie Mat' this year and while designing this one took a little bit longer to work on because of looking for the perfect images to use and making sure everything was sized right, it was still much simpler than I expected. This project used some inexpensive placemats I found online, Cricut Everyday Iron-on, and the Cricut EasyPress 2. Since I have the large EasyPress, 'ironing' this project took so much less time than using a regular iron. Easy peasy and the kids loved it. They can't wait to set it out for Santa. 


I stepped up my gift wrapping game this year with my Cricut products as well. This is a huge deal for me because I am terrible at wrapping as it is, much less anything that actually looks as nice as these ended up turning out. The Cricut Design Space app has a lot of premade projects for you. The simplicity is astounding. You just choose a project you like and hit 'make it' or 'customize it'. They will tell you exactly what materials you need and even how to assemble the project. So with this one, I found a premade design for paper holly and then added the letters as tags. You could do a full name cutout or even use the pen in the machine to write on a gift tag for you in fancy lettering. I did the single letter because none of my gift recipients have the same first initial, so it worked for me.  

I am looking forward to all the different things I have in mind to make for every season with all of my Cricut products.
