MCM Felt Christmas Decor with Cricut

I have been feeling the Mid Century Modern vibe the last couple of years and want to bring more of that into my Christmas decor. This year, I got to work and used my Cricut and transformed a plain tree skirt, that I already had on hand, with felt (inspired by this post from Krys at Melo-Drama.) I also made some colorful felt house ornaments.

I started with a Retro Snowflake and Ornament pattern in DesignSpace and resized them to fit the skirt, then duplicated them. I used the rotary blade on the Cricut Maker to cut the felt.

Once the pieces were cut, I laid out the tree skirt and played with the arrangement until I found one I liked. I used some of the smaller pieces and the circles from the ornament holes to decorate the ornaments. I used a fabric glue to attach the pieces to the skirt. Easy peasy! I LOVE how it turned out!

Supplies Needed for Felt Gingerbread Houses:

Cricut Maker
Cricut Rotary Blade
Cricut StrongGrip Mat or FabricGrip Mat
Cricut Felt in several colors
School glue or hot glue gun/glue sticks
Pom Poms and paint (optional) 

I started with several difference house images from Design Space and modified them, using the Contour Feature to leave me with just the outline of the houses. I added a few square and rectangle shapes to use as doors and windows. I used the rotary blade on the Cricut Maker to cut the felt.

I used both regular school glue and hot glue to attach the window and door pieces (note: the hot glue gun seemed to work better.) You can also add other elements like pom poms or paint "snow" onto the roof.
