This year I was invited to be a part of an ornament exchange with some other bloggers and I was so excited to participate. The deal was that we would all make an ornament using our favorite Cricut machines and send it to another blogger “secret santa” style! Here’s the full tutorial on the DIY Christmas Nativity Ornament I made and sent.

DIY CHRISTMAS NATIVITY ORNAMENT SUPPLIES:
- EXPLORE AIR 2 MINT
- Cricut 12X12 Cutting Mats
- Pebbled Faux Leather, Patina Sampler
- Cricut Design Space™
Alright, so the first step to making this project is to access Cricut Design Space and search the images to “Nativity Scene” for the right file.
The first thing to do set up your cuts. When you insert this image into your canvas, you simply need to resize it to the size you want and click on Make It.
The image is all set up to cut both layers already. (Ignore my 3rd and 4th cuts in the image below, I was saving time and cutting two at once.)
Go ahead and set your material knob to other, click on the faux leather setting in your design space options, then cut your first layer into the black pebbled faux leather. This doesn’t even require a deep cut blade.
Next, cut your second layer, or the back layer of your ornament, out of the pebbled copper faux leather sheet.
The final step is to glue them together. I opted to use Fabri-Tac because it always works really well for me.
And there you have it! Use some string to make a loop and hang it on your tree! Simple, perfect and so pretty!
I hope you like this project! It’s so quick and easy, you should have plenty of time to make it this holiday season!
