Some of you observant readers have probably noticed that Hello Creative Family’s tagline is handmade. homemade. heart-made. Not only is that my motto for my website, it’s also a motto that I try to live my life by.  I consider myself a creative person and I’m doing my best to raise my kids to be creative individuals too. 

While I do my best to live a handmade, homemade, heart-made life, 365 days a year, Christmas is one of my favorite times to celebrate the “triple h” life! From making handmade gifts, to buying goods from local artists, to baking Christmas goodies, to decorating my home and my tree with handmade ornaments and decorations– there are so many areas where handmade is a natural fit for Christmas. 

Last year, around this time, I shared this image:

5 Reasons To Give Handmade Gifts

It got some flack for point number 1 (if I were to redo the image I’d definitely put it as point #5), but for the most part it really spoke to people. I like to think that when I give someone a handmade gift it makes them feel like I really spent time and thought about them. I think the same thing goes when people see your home decorated with handmade decorations and ornaments– it makes people think that you put in that little bit of extra effort. 

I love the first thing that people see when they come to my front door to be a handmade door hanging or wreath. I have one for each season/holiday. I’ve hung a DIY embroidery hoop snowman on my front door for the past few years at Christmas time, so this year I decided to change it up a bit and make a new door hanging. 

I’ve told you all many times now how excited I was to hear that the new Cricut Maker had a rotary cutter. When I was sitting at the Cricut product launch in Salt Lake City in August I immediately started fantasizing about all of the things I would make and cut with my Cricut Maker and one of the things I dreamed about cutting was felt! 

The Cricut Rotary Blade and Cricut Fabric Grip Adhesive Cutting Mat make cutting felt a breeze. Seriously! The blade cuts through the felt like it’s butter! I was worried that the snowflake design would be too intricate for the blade, but nope! It cut it out beautifully! Most of the fabric I’ve cut with my maker so far has been a thinner material like quilting cotton so I was really excited to test it out with something heavier like felt. 

Can you imagine all of the possibilities this opens up? Felt ornaments? Felt storyboards? Felt stuffed animals? I am so excited! 

This project was so easy to design and uses all elements from within Cricut Design Space. You know how I love the slice and weld tool! I used it to make the circular globes. The snowflakes were in the library of over 60,000 images in design space and the font was there too! Easy peasy! 

The Cricut Maker is amazing. You are definitely going to want to add it to your Christmas wishlist if you haven’t already.

Directions:

Step 1: Cut your snowflakes, letters and globes using my cut file and the Cricut Maker. I used my rotary cutter to cut the designs and set my fabric type as fusible fleece. The Cricut Maker cut the felt like it was butter!

Step 2: Adhere the letters and snowflakes to the “globes” using glue or a spray adhesive. If using spray adhesive make sure to do this in a well ventilated area and lay down newspaper to avoid a mess. Follow the instructions on the bottle.

Step 3:  Lay your project out and poke a hole through the felt where it overlaps. Stick a brad through the hole and open up the back of the brad so that the pieces of felt are secured to each other.

    I love the look of fancy cursive font, and my penmanship is definitely not where it needs to be, so I’d made a beautiful sign on a tray I’ve made!
