Create an easy let it snow ornament using the Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker. This ornament is so pretty on a Christmas tree!
Welcome to Have Yourself A Very Cricut Christmas: 25 Days of Homemade Holiday Crafts!
Each day in December, I’ll be sharing a new Christmas project that you can make using your Cricut. It’s going to be a blog version of an advent calendar! Come back every day to get a new “gift.”
Today’s gift is a Let It Snow Ornament.
If you’ve ever seen a picture of our Christmas tree, you will know that I have a thing for Christmas ornaments. I love to collect them! We have a wide variety of ornaments, but I also love to make new ornaments each year that we can add to our tree.
I also love the look of custom calligraphy on ornaments. But, I’ve never been the best at calligraphy myself. You can create the look of calligraphy by using a calligraphy font and some vinyl.
You’re going to love this Let It Snow Ornament. Here’s how to make it!

Start by opening Cricut Design Space and creating a new project.
Upload the SVG File
Then, upload the SVG file by selecting the Upload button and then Upload Image. Next, drag and drop or select the SVG file you want to upload.

Now it’s time to make your project!
Click on the Make It button in the upper right of the screen.
The first screen you will see is the Mat Preview Screen. This will show you all of the different mats needed for your project. Each mat represents another piece of material.
For this project, there is only one material being used.
Click on the Continue button in the lower right of the screen.
Connect your Cricut machine.
Material: Adhesive Foil
You will need to search to select this material.
Tools: Fine-Point Blade
How to Assemble The Project
Once all of your pieces are cut out, it’s time to assemble the project.
First, you will need to weed the adhesive foil design to remove the extra material. The goal is to leave only the adhesive foil for the design image behind.
Use the weeder tool to pick up the foil off the backing and easily remove it. After all of the extra foil is removed, you should be left with just the design on the backing.
Use your hand, starting in the center, to transfer the vinyl from the transfer tape onto the ornament.
It can be slightly difficult to get the foil to stick to a curved surface, so work slowly. Sometimes it gets bent slightly or doesn’t lay right.
If that happens, just use the weeder tool to pick up the foil and place it as needed. I had to use scissors to cut my foil design so it would lay better on the ornament.
Next, you will need to fill your ornament with white glitter.
Remove the top of the plastic ornament. Then take a piece of scrap paper and roll it to create a funnel.
Now your Let It Snow Ornament is ready!
This ornament looks so beautiful on a Christmas tree. It’s simple, pretty, and wintery!
You can even make a few of these ornaments to give away as Christmas gifts.
I hope you love this Let It Snow Ornament.
