It’s officially here! My first holiday post of the year, and I couldn’t be happier about it! When Cricut first came out with the Cricut Maker, I wrote this post about the new cutting machine, and I was soooo excited for the knife blade to come out! This was my first chance to use the new blade, while making a couple of holiday projects, and it did not disappoint. If you don’t already have a Cricut Maker, you might want one after this post! lol.

If you’ve never heard of a Cricut, the Cricut Maker is essentially a cutting machine (like a mini CNC) that cuts tons of different materials. The Maker is the most versatile of these machines because of it’s new blades that allow is to effortlessly cut fabric, balsa wood, chipboard, leather, etc. But wood. WOOD! That was the most exciting part. I have a ton of DIYs brewing in my mind that I can’t wait to use the Cricut Maker for, but first, I wanted to demonstrate how to cut wood on the Cricut Maker, by creating a couple of quick and easy holiday projects.
Materials needed for the holiday projects:
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut Knife Blade
- String Grip Cutting Mat
- Balsa Wood
- Black Wood Stain
- Leather Cording

I am constantly adding wood pieces to my rooms when I’m decorating. Why not start making my own? Now that I know how easily the Cricut Maker cuts wood, my head is spinning with ideas. I loved how these simple holiday projects turned out.
Both of these DIY projects popped into my head sometime last year and they turned out just as beautifully as I imagined!
