Wood Round Christmas Ornament DIY


Step 1

Step 1 Adding seal to the wood round - prepping the surface of the ornament. Instructions and holiday ornament at DearCreatives.com
  • If you need to stain your wood round- Begin to apply stain to the wood round. If painting, it is best to use matte paint.
  • However, this may require 2-3 coats.
  • If staining, be sure to stain in a well-ventilated area.
  • Allow 24-48 hours for stain and paint to completely dry and soak into the wood.
  • Use masking tape or painter’s tape to create a crisp line for a two-toned painted look.

Step 2

Step 2 of making a Christmas ornament with a wood round. Adding Mod Podge to the wood round - sealing the ornament. DIY Christmas ornament at DearCreatives.com
  • Once stain and paint are dry; Add a layer of mod podge as a sealant to the front of the round where the vinyl will later be applied.
  • If there is no barrier between stain and vinyl, the oils in the stain will break down the adhesive on the vinyl.

Step 3

  • In Design Space prepare your design or phrase by using the text tool. Size according to wood round used.
  • I used the font Avenir and Montens. If you don’t have this font, you can use any sans serif and script font.
  • **NOTE: If using a script font in design space, don’t forget to kern your letters (kern = connecting the letter to cut as one piece).

Step 4

  • Once designed and sized accordingly, select make it in the design space.
  • Adjust the machine setting or material dial to a custom, washi sheet.
  • Fonts that have small, delicate cuts in the letters will use this setting to help them cut smoothly.
  • Load the permanent vinyl to your machine on the standard grip mat and hit “go”.

Step 5

When the cuts are complete, begin to weed around and inside the letters of the vinyl by using your weeding tool (looks like a dentist’s pick).

Step 6

  • After the designs are completely weeded; cut off a piece of transfer tape the size of the vinyl and apply the transfer tape using pressure with the scrapper tool.
  • Note: This is done in order to get the vinyl off its carrier sheet and onto the project’s surface.

Step 10

  • Lastly, using hot glue attach the greenery to the wood and top with a small bow.
  • Thread the ribbon through the top to create a hanging attachment.
  • *NOTE: if the wood round does not have a pre-made hole, create one using a small drill bit. Or hot glue a loop to the back of the ornament.
