Then brush a little paint, very sparingly on the backside of the ornament. Leave it really brushy and don't cover the entire blank. Then let the paint dry completely.

Then use the Cricut cutting machine to cut the vinyl. I picked the word Merry! The diameter of the blank is just under 2 inches, so the vinyl needs to be small--but pick a big word so it's less delicate weeding. Then weed the excess vinyl.

Acrylic Ornament #3: Engraving with Cricut Maker

Last ornament is my newest favorite obsession. Check out these acrylic keychains I made last week. Begin by removing the covering off the top of the acrylic blank.

Design the image in Cricut Design Space. Select the "engrave" option. I find it works best to pick a "draw" image and a "writing" font.

Then remove the tape and see how cool the engraving is! I love how this turned out. It's subtle and classy. Add some paint to the backside like the first ornament if you want it to pop!

  1. I love the engraved one first, then vinyl, then paint. I will probably not paint this.
