Free Christmas Cut File Designs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I can say without a smidge of doubt that my favorite designing is done for the holiday season. Starting in June, I put on my holiday music, grab my iPad and pencil, and start sketching out oodles of new Christmas SVG designs I can use and share with you all.
This year is no exception, but I wanted to incorporate a specific request from a reader: “Can you make a couple of Merry Christmas SVG files I can use for signs, cards, ornaments, and gift tags? My Grandmother passed away and always used “Merry Christmas” to diffuse tense situations (any time of year!). She could make any grumpy stranger smile and I want to honor her by putting it everywhere this year.”
Challenge accepted. And what a fun grandmother you had, Lacey.

Free Merry Christmas SVG Designs for the Holidays
Whew, I’m SO excited to share some of these brand new designs. And just to paint a picture: I am sitting in 90 degree heat in a tank top writing this and creating new holiday SVG files… Obviously, I really love Christmas.
Free Merry Christmas Cut File with Ornaments
I created this free Merry Christmas SVG with ornaments design so I could create a sign AND a holiday card (it makes me happy when designs pull double duty). This design works well for both a square and a horizontal frame or wood blank.
If you want to make your own cards, just print the file in highest quality onto card stock using a regular word processing program (Apple’s Pages or Microsoft Word). Be sure to size it to a 4×6 or 5×8 card in the program.

This Merry Christmas Crew SVG with holiday lights is a fun and lighthearted way to share something with the kids or grandkids. Create a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or apron with heat transfer vinyl.
Merry Christmas SVG Free with Hope Peace Joy
This free Merry Christmas Hope Peace Joy cut file is perfect as a Christmas sign SVG, but can also be used on cards, pillows, aprons, and clothing. It’s a simple weeding project but if you’re a beginner, please go slowly when removing excess vinyl around the monoline font areas.

Modern Merry Christmas SVG
As part of the 31 days series, you can get this free cut file for a modern style Merry Christmas which features stylized holly and berries, a fun and playful font, and a really easy done for you design. Note: this file is only free with the coupon in the series.
This set is shown printed on a large gift tag, however, it is a cut file and can be used for paper, vinyl, stencils, and other projects. The black outline for the holly is a separate layer, making this an easy beginner vinyl Cricut Christmas project.
A Very Merry Christmas SVG with Traditional Holly
This free very Merry Christmas SVG design was a reader request with a lettered message and a traditional set of holly and berry extras. In the example, you can see it on a square frame for holiday decor made using permanent vinyl. Note: this file is only free with the coupon in the series.
To create this Cricut Christmas sign: group each color of the free Christmas SVG file and cut permanent vinyl in red, green, and black with or without a registration mark. Each layer is ready to cut for the final design but you can choose to cut without the holly outline for a more simple project.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas SVG Free
This free farmhouse Merry Christmas SVG for 31 days subscribers has my hand drawn holiday red truck. I love tucking pieces like this onto trays, in bookcases, or to print and use it as a Christmas card. Note: this file is only free with the coupon in the series.
In the example, you can see it made with 4 colors of permanent vinyl (red, green, black, and white). If you are new to Cricut or Silhouette, this type of project is easily completed when you create a registration mark to align everything (or use a weeding box).
Merry Christmas SVG for a Round Christmas Door Sign
I have had so many people email me pictures of signs they’ve made with this Merry Christmas Santa and reindeer cut file set. If you want to make one, I made an easy to follow Christmas sign tutorial here.
This is such a fun project and because the design is in three sections, it is a perfect vinyl Cricut project for beginners. It can be sized to any wood round and also be used as a stencil.
Inexpensive Merry Christmas SVG Designs
Whisking You a Merry Christmas
One of my favorite parts of the season is all of the holiday baking. This Whisking You a Merry Christmas SVG is a done for you design, expertly layered so the project is fun and simple.
Cut this file using a heat transfer vinyl (HTV) with the sections grouped by color (that is done for you with my SVG designs already). It is easy to line up these sections without a registration mark or weeding box. Press per the HTV package instructions. This makes a fun gift when you add a festive whisk and a cookie mix.
Merry Christmas SVG with Laurels in a Farmhouse Style
Oh, I love the simple designs and this laurel wrapped Merry Christmas cut file is just that. The easy to weed letters and laurels make this perfect for kitchen towels, Christmas signs, and more.
