DIY Wood Slice Cricut Ornaments
Learn how to make these super simple and easy Cricut ornaments with vinyl and wood slices
Painting the Wood Slices
Paint both sides of the wood slices in white.
Ensure paint dries fully before proceeding.
Uploading the SVG Pattern
Upload the Owl.Deer.Tree SVG File into Design Space.
With the image highlighted, click on “Ungroup” to separate the images.
Adjust image sizes to fit your wood slices accordingly or maintain size as provided.
Highlight the owl and click on “Attach”.
Duplicate the images to have for both sides of the wood slice.
Cutting the Vinyl for Wood Slices
Ensure the machine is set to Cricut Joy and select “Make It” in Design Space.
Choose “With Mat” as the option for cutting when using regular Cricut Vinyl.
Set material type to Glitter Vinyl.
Follow prompts for loading the mat into the Cricut Joy and cutting the Glitter Vinyl. When prompted, unload the vinyl from the cutting machine.
Applying the Vinyl to the Wood Slices
Cut around each word and image with a pair of scissors.
Using the weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl and discard.
Cut a piece of transfer tape a bit larger than the size of the phrase or image.
Peel away the transfer tape backing and place the transfer tape over the top of the cut image. Gently rub the vinyl to help it stick to the transfer tape.
Peel away the vinyl backing and place the image on to one side of the wood slice. Gently rub the vinyl to help it stick to the wood slice. You can use a Cricut scraper tool for this.
Carefully and slowly peel away the transfer tape.
Alternatively, peel the glitter vinyl image off the backing and place it directly on to the wood slice without using the transfer tape.
Repeat for the other wood slices. For the owl ornament, place the body of the owl on to the wood slice first, then stick the scarf piece over top.
Assembling the Ornaments
Cut three pieces of ribbon 9” long. Insert the end of the ribbon through the hole at the top of the wood slice and tie ends together.
