How to Make Fillable Christmas Ornaments
To make this ornament, start by layering the faux snow filler into your fillable ornament. I alternated the mini foam balls and the glitter flakes, then shook everything together to disperse.
To cut the let-it snow-free SVG files, upload the design to Cricut Design Space and scale the design, ensuring that you have it sized correctly for the ornaments you are using.
My ornaments were 3×3, so I resized the SVG to approx. 2.5 inches wide. Make sure that the aspect ratio is locked when you resize, so the design holds its dimensions.
Cut a piece of vinyl to fit. Place the permanent vinyl on your cutting mat and load it into the Cricut machine.
Check your cut settings, and use the settings recommended by your machine for permanent vinyl. Cut out your SVG, then weed out all of the excess vinyl, careful to weed the inside of the letters and snowflakes, as well. Cut a piece of transfer tape to fit the design.
Applying Vinyl To Christmas Ornaments
Use the Cricut scraper to smooth the transfer tape to the front of the vinyl. Smooth and burnish the vinyl. Flip the design over so that it’s face down, and peel the liner away from the transfer tape.
For any curved or rounded surface, it can be helpful to cut short snips around the transfer tape to allow for more flexibility when placing the design onto the fillable ornament.
Next, position the vinyl onto your ornament, doing your best to make it centered how you want it. Use your scraper to lightly scrape over the vinyl pieces under the transfer tape so that they adhere to the ornament. Remove the transfer tape.
And your fillable Christmas ornaments are complete! These DIY Christmas ornaments are easy enough for kids can make, and they also make lovely gifts.
