Wood Round Ornament

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have plans to do a whole farmhouse Christmas this year. The tree is going to be decked out in farmhouse ornaments, there will be Christmas gnomes, and just a schlew of other fun farmhouse Christmas decorations. One of my favorite that I just finished making is this trio of easy wood round ornament ideas.


Not only are these super simple, but they come together so quickly. Which is one of my favorite things about most Cricut projects, I’ll be honest. There’s nothing like skipping the hour (or two) that it might take to paint lettering on an ornament. And, I’ll be really honest here, wood is not the easiest to hand letter–the rings just catch the pen fibers and it’s all downhill from there. So, Cricut for the win!

If you’re ready to make a few Cricut ornaments for your farmhouse Christmas tree, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Cricut Ornaments

  • First, you need to get your hands on some sizable wood circles (about 3 1/2 to 4 -inches around). And you’re welcome to cut your own (sometimes I do that), but for these, because a good part of the charm is seeing the wood round and the bark and all, well, I decided to buy some. They’re pre-sanded and smooth, so I don’t have to worry about that, and they’re flat–which is not something I can say about cutting wood rounds on my own. So, check out the great wood rounds I got here. The free SVGs are sized to fit this size wood round, so it should all work out in the end.
  • When you are painting either of the black or white wooden ornaments, make sure to follow a ring. That way your “circle” isn’t a circle at all, but is more organic, like the wood itself. That adds a lot to the look of these farmhouse ornaments.
