Give Thanks Ornament Tutorial

Hi friends! Today I am sharing a tutorial for a large Thanksgiving style ornament. I like to hang this type of ornament on the middle of a wreath. I used the In All Things Give Thanks 3 file (SVG).  The other supplies are a 1/4-inch wood round, heat transfer vinyl, twine, and a bead.

I sized the image to 4.463 x 4.301 to fit onto the six-inch round. I then deleted the round and sent the image to cut. 

In Cricut Design Space when using heat transfer vinyl, the images must be mirrored for each mat so that the images cut correctly. 

After weeding all the words. I dry fit all of my vinyl on the round just to make sure it all fit and to work out the placement. (I did change the word things to the darker color. The gold was just too light.)

Then with my heat press I attached the words to the wood round. I set my press to 300 degrees for 20 seconds. Let the vinyl cool slightly then peeled off the clear backing. 

I added a bead to the twine then looped it through the hole in the top of my round. 

Last I hung the ornament to the middle of my wreath. 

I love how this turned out. It is a perfect addition to this wreath and will look so pretty for Thanksgiving. 

Thanks for stopping by!
