Acrylic Ornaments and keychains are so popular right now and for good reason. They are so easy to make with your Cricut and can be customized in so many ways.
I love how many ways you can personalize an ornament. You can buy these acrylic blanks and put pretty much anything you want on it. Let me show you how!

HOW TO MAKE ACRYLIC ORNAMENTS
If you’d rather watch a video on how to make it step by step, take a look at this video here (highly recommended!):
STEP 1: UPLOAD FILES
Upload the file into Cricut Design Space.
There are 6 different brush strokes you can use that depending on the type of blank you are using.
STEP 2: DESIGN
Measure your blank.
Pick the brush stroke you like and resize the stroke to fit on the blank.
Take the text tool and write a name if you’d like to customize that.
If using text, don’t forget to adjust the letter-spacing and weld your text together so that it is one word. Otherwise Cricut will cut out each other letter individually.
STEP 3: CUT IT OUT
If you are using a brush stroke, mirror this layer on the “Make it” screen since this is going on the back of the blank.
Follow the prompts on your Cricut machine. I used the premium vinyl setting on my Cricut Maker.
STEP 4: ASSEMBLE ORNAMENT
Weed your layers.
Using transfer tape, apply it on the weeded design (or reverse weed).
Then apply the brush stroke on one side of the blank and the text on the opposite side of the blank.
Add a ribbon to hang or to tie a bow.
Doesn’t it look great?
