Think you can't fill an entire tree with DIY Christmas ornaments? Think again! I made all the ornaments on our Christmas tree myself with my Cricut Maker!
Thank you to Cricut for sponsoring this DIY Christmas ornaments post!
Raise your hand if you think I'm crazy for decorating an entire 9 foot tree exclusively with DIY Christmas ornaments. I have to admit, I thought it was a little bit crazy myself, but I REALLY wanted to do it. Anyone can buy ornaments (trust me, our other tree is full of store-bought ornaments), but I wanted this tree to be filled with totally unique ornaments, and that meant making them myself. When I realized that I could use my Cricut Maker to make all of my DIY Christmas ornaments, the task actually seemed doable.
You can click here to read my full review of the Cricut Maker. It is hands-down the tool I use most often for small-scale DIY projects (and even some large scale projects like this huge DIY wall quote). And if you are curious about my thoughts on Cricut vs. Silhouette machines (I've used both), be sure to read this post.
Though making all of these DIY Christmas ornaments was time consuming, I have to tell you, it was fun! My sweet girls were able to help a lot (mostly by tying the ribbons and suede cord) and even my husband pitched in some. We had quite the assembly line going :) And I know that as we hang these ornaments year after year, our girls will remember that we sat around a huge table and made them together. And that makes my heart happy.
Here are links to the tutorials for the different ornaments you see on our tree:

Just take a look at how all of our DIY ornaments look on our tree!
