Christmas Vacation Ornaments using a Cricut!

Need a cheap and quick gift? Make Christmas vacation ornaments using your Cricut and acrylic ornaments. Cute keepsake vacation ornaments for cheap!

I’ve made a lot of DIY ornaments over the years and this year I wanted to try something new!  I’ve made glitter ornaments, wood slice ornaments, and floating ornaments, but this year I moved on to acrylic ornaments.

These are probably the quickest yet!  So if you need last-minute Cricut gifts, you can whip up a bunch of these in a matter of minutes.

Decorating a Christmas tree is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.  It’s the one thing I can also still get all of my kids to do and they love seeing all of the ornaments we have collected over the years.

This year we went on a few amazing vacations so I knew I needed to make some Christmas vacation ornaments.  These make perfect and inexpensive personalized friend ornaments and personalized family Christmas ornaments with just a few supplies.

These would also make great ornaments to make during a holiday craft party!

Designing Personalized Christmas Ornaments in Design Space

The first thing you’ll want to do is design the personalized ornaments in CDS.  I inserted a 3-inch circle as a reference to size and center my text and images.  I hid the circles before I cut!


I uploaded the Hamilton image from google but all the other text and images are from Cricut Access.  I used the slice tool to slice out the year of the Disney ornament.

Once everything is designed, click make it.  Set your material setting to whichever adhesive vinyl you are cutting.

Load a mat and cut!

Putting Together Vacation Ornaments

Make sure to watch the quick video at the top or side to see everything in motion.  It is a sped-up video, but the entire process only took 11 minutes to make 4 Cricut ornaments.

Once everything is cut, weed out the extra vinyl.

The acrylic ornament blanks will come with protective sheets on both sides.  I peeled off the top side before I put on the vinyl and then the backside after, but you could peel both sides off at the beginning.

Place transfer tape over your vinyl and scrape it down.

I made two different cruise ornaments, one with holographic vinyl and one with regular.  You could also use printable vinyl and print and cut images if you want an image you can’t find an SVG for.

I love the holographic vinyl!  It looks like different colors depending on the light.
