Not only has buffalo plaid been a HUGE trend this year in the crafting and home decor world, but this Christmas was also the season for hoop ornaments. And what happens when you combine both of these trends? You get the most beautiful homemade Christmas hoop ornaments ever!
If you’ve never created one of these beauties before, then today’s post is perfect for you. I am going to share 2 free hoop ornament cut files with you, and tell you exactly how to make your own.
First things first, you want to gather your supplies. For this project I used two 3 inch embroidery hoops that I bought from Amazon. The package contained 12 of them, so this is plenty for you to make a few for you and for friends and family as well.
You will also need some buffalo plaid fabric, which I bought at Joann using a coupon from their mobile app. And white heat transfer vinyl for the wording.
Some other supplies that you will need are a heat press, Cricut EasyPress or your home iron to press the designs onto the fabric, and some twine to be able to hang these from your Christmas tree.
As an extra decoration, you can also use some Christmas tree greenery or berries to attach at the top, but this is completely up to you. You can even decorate them with bows instead if you’d like.
Now that you’re ready to start making these, you need to download the free cut files that you can find at the bottom of this post. Aren’t these two design just beautiful? I thought the Merry Christmas and Joy wordings were just perfect for these ornaments.
Then cut them out and make sure to mirror them before you send them to your cutting machine.
With your fabric, you will want to cut out a few 6 inch by 6 inch squares and press your designs as centered as possible on these squares.
Now that you have your designs pressed onto the fabric, open one of the embroidery hoops and hoop the fabric on. You should end up with an excess amount of fabric left around the backside of the hoop and you will take your scissors and trim this down as much as possible. This will create a neat finish for the back side of your ornaments.
The last step is to take some twine and loop it around the top of the hoop to create a loop to hang the ornaments.
At this point you are done with your ornaments and the decorations that you do after are all up to you. I really love the way the greenery and berries look, but a red satin bow would also look perfect.
QUICK NOTE: You can use these designs for personal and commercial use. If you’d like to share them with your friends (I’d LOVE THIS!), I do ask that you just link them to this post and help support my website. Also, please don’t upload it to a print on demand (POD) website, or send it for mass production.
Thank you so much for your support, and if you make anything with this design, tag me @PerfectStylishCuts, I love seeing your makes.
