If you're looking for a super fun Christmas craft, this is a great project. It turned out wonderful and it makes a great gift for someone in your life. We used a cut file and manipulated it in Design Space to fit onto this homemade Christmas Tree. Isn't it so cute? We also got some really cute holiday dingbats from a few other new Christmas cut files to really take this project up a notch.

How to Make This Project

  1. Layout your paint stir sticks and measure them where you'd like to cut them to make them into a Christmas tree. Be sure to keep one stir stick to be your tree base.
  2. Take your paint and apply 1-2 coats onto your wood pieces. Paint your base piece Green.
  3. While the paint is drying, measure your wood pieces and size your file in Design Space. You will need to duplicate the file several times and contour out every other word so you end up having all the words separate.
  4. Once you size them properly, load your mat, set your material, and let the Cricut cut!
  5. When the Cricut is done cutting unload your mat and weed the negative Iron-on from your cut design.
  6. Preheat your EasyPress.
  7. When your wood pieces are completely dry preheat the wood and apply your Iron-On where you’d like it to be.
  8. Heat the Iron-On and while still warm peel off the transfer paper. Repeat for all of your words and then add your other fun Christmas dingbats.
  9. Now glue your pieces to your base and allow them to dry.
  10. Make a bow and glue it to the top of your tree base and enjoy your great project!
