How to Decorate a Tabletop Farmhouse Christmas Tree with Cricut
Christmas is such a wonderful time of year and I really go all out with my decorations. I decorate several trees every year including this cute little tabletop tree! It’s no secret that I am in love will plaid and buffalo check. So this year, I switched things up and decided our little flocked tree in the foyer will be Farmhouse style!
Of course, when it comes to decorations I rely heavily on my Cricut Maker. It’s versatility makes creating custom and personalized decor a cinch. I created several ornaments for my tree and I’m excited to give you an up close look at each of them, including a tutorial for my favorite one!
I started the decorating by weaving lots of buffalo check ribbon in and out of the branches and created a bow for the topper.
I made several trees and a few words and hung them with twine. See the tutorial HERE.
If you are new to Cricut, be sure to check out my video for cutting vinyl with your Cricut. It’s great for beginner crafters!
I love how these turned out, they are so easy and affordable to make!
I hung them with black and white ribbon to match the theme.
I also added several Black Leather Christmas Tree ornaments that I made from Genuine Leather. I also made several for gift toppers. Aren’t they cute?
Last by certainly not least, I finished off the tree with a few silver bells and my favorite, DIY California Ornaments.
How to Make Ornaments with Chipboard and the Cricut Maker
These cute little ornaments are super simple to make with the Cricut Maker.
What you will need:
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut Chipboard
- Cricut Knife Blade
- Masking Tape
- Cutting Mat
- California Tree Ornament in Design Space
- Black Paint & White Paint
- Paint Brush
- Twine and Ribbon
Start by installing the Knife Blade per the instructions and move the white star wheels over to the right.
Load your cutting mat with the Heavy Chipboard taped down on all four sides. Send your file to the Maker and follow the prompts on the screen and watch the magic happen! Be sure to allow enough time to complete your project, cutting Chipboard takes some time.
Don’t they look amazing? I love how clean the cuts are with the Knife Blade.
Next, paint the ornaments black. Let dry.
To create a rustic, wood look. Lightly brush white paint over the ornaments. Let dry.
Add your favorite ribbon and twine and you’re ready to hang them on your Farmhouse Christmas Tree!
Don’t they look fab? I love how they turned out. They look like wood!
Now all you have to do is decorate your tabletop. I dressed my table up with a matching tree skirt and several of my DIY Christmas Trees. I also hung up my Budget Friendly Farmhouse Wreath Garland.
I added my DIY Farmhouse Christmas Sign that I also made with my Cricut and EasyPress 2 for that extra touch.
And that’s it! My very own tabletop Farmhouse Christmas Tree decorated with ornaments I made with my Cricut Maker. I hope you are inspired to DIY your Holiday with your Cricut Maker this year. The holiday craft possibilities are truly endless!
