Learn how to make a DIY Reindeer Hot Chocolate Ornament using your Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore! These easy ornaments make a great handmade teacher’s gift and gifts for kids. Includes a free Reindeer Face SVG File.
One of my favorite things to do is get together for a Crafternoon with my girlfriends. I love doing it in person, but that’s so hard when I have so many wonderful, talented, creative blogging friends who live all over the world! So today, I’m getting together with them virtually for a Cricut Christmas ornament Crafternoon project!
Our wonderful host, Jennifer from Celebrating Everyday Life, gave us the theme of Christmas Ornaments made with your Cricut. I immediately knew exactly what I was going to make– DIY Reindeer Hot Chocolate Ornaments!
Last year my friend Tracy and I got together and made these sweet little ornaments to go in Christmas gift baskets. My kids and I also made some for them to give to their friends! They are super easy to make using your Cricut and perfect for little helpers because you can just put each vinyl decal piece on your ornament like a sticker– no transfer tape needed!
I love that these sweet little ornaments are not only handmade, but also don’t break the bank! Buy your hot chocolate in bulk, get a big package of clear ornaments, and pick up sheets of black, red and brown vinyl and your set! You can get a TON of ornaments out of one 12″X12″ sheet!
I’m also giving you a free SVG file that you can use for these ornaments! It would look cute on other things too like mugs or t-shirts so play around! The sky is the limit!

DIY Reindeer Hot Chocolate Ornament
–Cricut Vinyl (I used red, black and brown)
Step 1: Download my Reindeer Face SVG file. Log into Cricut Design Space. Click on Upload Image and upload the SVG file. Click on the image of the cut file and then click “Insert Images”.
Size your image to the size you want for your ornament. I sized mine so that it was 2.5 inches wide. Then click “Make It”.
Select the material you will be cutting with. Lay each color of vinyl onto your cutting mat when prompted colored side up, load it into your Cricut and then push the cute little Cricut C.
Step 2: Use your weeding tools to weed each color of your vinyl, carefully removing the excess vinyl from around your design leaving just your image left on the white backing.
Step 3: Transfer the antlers, ears, eyes and nose to the Christmas ball pushing down firmly to make sure they are adhered to your Christmas ornament.
Step 4: Remove the top of your Christmas ornament and use a funnel to fill it with hot chocolate. Once filled put the top back on the Christmas ornament.
Voila! You have an adorable DIY Reindeer Hot Chocolate Ornament.
Last year we paired them with these gift tags we made with our Cricut and they were so cute!
