HTV On Wood Slice Ornaments Using Cricut Easy Press

Today we are going to create ornaments using Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) and the Cricut Easy Press 2. These are so easy to create and they look great on the tree! Just cut, press & add some ribbon...

You will need the following materials:

First open a new canvas in Cricut Design Space and upload your ornament designs. I am using the Round Christmas Ornaments SVG set from the November 2020 Bundle

I measured my wood slice to find the area that was centered but a little lower to allow for the drilled hole. I used a drill bit and made a small hole. 

Resize the designs to 2.5" wide. Select all the parts of Hope Ornament svg design and click Attach. Repeat with the Joy Ornament svg design This will keep all of the text and design elements together when it is cut.


*These wood slices are from a tree that fell on my farm. We cut them into 1/4" slices and sanded them to remove some of the burn marks from the blade. They are not perfect and that is intentional.

Now click Make It once your designs are set up properly.

Click to edit and make sure you choose to MIRROR the design.


When using the Cricut Maker, I have found the best setting for Siser Holographic HTV to be the Cardstock Intricate Cut Default Setting with Pressure set to Default.

Load the Fine Point Blade into Clamp B.

Place your Siser Holographic HTV onto the LightGrip Mat  with the back of the sheet face up. Be sure to load it this way and not shiny side up! 

Load & Cut your designs.

Weed away the excess material, leaving your design on the clear carrier sheet.

Turn on your Cricut Easy Press 2 and heat to 335º F and set the time to 30 seconds.

Place the wood slice onto the Heat Press Mat  and lay the htv cover sheet over the wood slice.

Once the Easy Press is ready, heat the wood ornament for about 5 seconds. This helps the HTV bond to the surface.

Now place your design on the wood slice, lay the cover sheet over it and hit start as you apply even pressure straight down for 30 seconds.

Allow the carrier sheet to cool and peel off....


These wood slice ornaments are so much fun to make with heat transfer vinyl on wood with your Cricut Easy Press!
