Zooey Deschanel’s favorite holiday crafts

December 16, 2021 by Zooey Deschanel

This year, my Cricut machine and I are taking on any gift-giving challenge to create joy!


One of the things I love about the holiday season is crafting and I’m delighted my Cricut machine is here to support all of my holiday crafting ambitions. Here are some of my holiday favorites. 

Cup of Cheer mug

Who doesn’t enjoy a cup of hot cocoa in the wintertime? I know I do and I made a mug to prove it. To make it I used the Cricut Mug Press, and it’s so easy that everyone is getting this mug in their stocking! 

Believe in Your Elf pillow

I love decorating for the holidays so this year I decided to make this fun pillow with the help of the Cricut Mini Press. Great for Christmas morning pillow fights!

Let it snow, let it snow, Lettuce Grow

Calling all gardeners and fresh veggie enthusiasts. Meet the Lettuce Grow Farmstand! This indoor veggie garden is a great gift idea for those who love to cook with the freshest ingredients, even in the cold of winter. Make this gift even more special by customizing it and labeling all of your sprouts. Using my Cricut Maker, I made my farmstand even more adorable. We will never mix up flat leaf parsley and cilantro again.

DIY Ornaments

Make this project

Here’s a little something for the animal parents.  These adorable ornaments are a fun way to show your love for your furry family members. I put my Cricut machine to work to make some great gifts for my animal loving friends. 

Poinsettia Hairpiece and Belt 

Make this project

This is probably my favorite thing I made last year because I wear them all of the time. I’m always looking for ways to make my outfits more festive over the holidays and that’s why I love these accessories so much. They were super easy to make with my Cricut machine and make any outfit holiday ready.

Cozy Winter Vibes sign

Make this project

A custom sign is a fun way to impress your family and let them know you take the holidays seriously. Cricut vinyl is a quick transfer onto any surface, even a classic chalkboard, so you can make a sign for anything and everything. 

I hope my holiday favorites inspire you to get crafty with Cricut. Hand-made crafts make my holiday more fun and love that I have my trusty Cricut machines to help make all of my holiday DIY dreams a reality. 

Show off some of your holiday favorites on socials using #CricutMade. Happy Holidays to all!
