Cricut ideas for local Christmas traditions – now available in Design Space.

8 December 2021

We can almost hear the sound of sleigh bells jangling it’s getting so close to the big day! Thankfully, with your trusty Cricut machine and a few materials, you can ensure you celebrate in style this season. We’ve called upon a few friends to create some locally-relevant Ready-to-Make Projects that are now live in Cricut Design Space.

We’re so excited to share these Cricut ideas for Christmas traditions with you. The only problem we can see is choosing which one to make first!

Festive Sprout Wreath

You’ll need to select a Maker or Maker 3 as your machine type to be able to see this project as the rotary blade is used to cut crepe paper. Emma Jewell uses the Sprout Leaf image from her Christmas collection (image reference #M313DB039) to create life-like veggies. This is the perfect way to have brussel sprouts at Christmas without having to actually eat them!

Personalised Pudding Place Cards

Is any food more synonymous with Christmas than figgy pudding? Well maybe sprouts, but we’ve already got that one covered!

In Christmasses past, Cricut members this side of the ocean had to create their own Christmas pudding designs. But now, thanks to Emma’s new Christmas image sets, you can create these name cards for the table in next to no time.

What a great way to show those you love how much they mean by making personalised name cards for Christmas dinner. They’d be a great addition to your Christmas scrapbook when you’ve finished too, gravy splashes and all!

Personalised Christmas Eve Box

Sticking with the personalised theme – because Cricut and personalised gifts go hand-in-hand, we have made a Christmas Eve Box that you can make in Design Space. This project was designed by Rebecca Lopuc of Rebecca Marie Creative. It’s a doddle to update the project with your recipient’s name.

Fill the box with books, puzzles, games, and toys to keep them occupied on Christmas Eve. And don’t forget the most important part – the new pyjamas. Of course, you’ll be personalising those too!

Felt Christmas Cracker Hats

Another project for Maker machines is this reusable cracker hat design. (But do switch out the rotary blade for the fine point blade if you want to make it on an Explore machine). The hats are made from felt with cute references to traditional British and Irish Christmas dinners.Emma Jewell used some of her new images recently added to Cricut Design Space to adorn these hats that can be used year after year. Who will get the ‘Yorkshire Pudding Appreciation Society’ crown in your family?

Matching Pantomime Jumpers

If a visit to the theatre to catch this year’s Pantomime is your Christmas tradition, level up your outfits with matching sweaters. Customise this project with your family name for an extra special day out that will stay in the memory.
