If you want to make your own wood slices, find a tree branch or piece of wood and cut 3/4″ rounds. I used an extra baluster my Father-In-Law had left over. Then drill a small hole to hang the ornaments near the top. Sand all sides including the edges slightly to smooth the rough bark.
Side note– I love using these wood slices for a variety of projects. I’ve turned them into coaster sets as gifts and designed ornaments with different phrases and graphics. They’re so versatile and a great craft supply to keep on hand.
In Cricut Design space type the following words (or whatever words you want) to make: merry, hope, noel, joy, love, rejoice, believe, and peace. I used the font MTF Skinny Jeans which you can find on dafont.com. Make the words 2″ in height. Then manipulate the letter spacing to make the word roughly 2″ long as well.
Cut out all your words and use transfer tape to place them on your wood slices. For an extra finish, you can use mod podge to seal the vinyl. I didn’t find this necessary but always an option. Attach a cute piece of twine or yarn and you’re done!
Hope you enjoy this easy Christmas project! For another quick and festive Cricut project check out my initial gift tags.
