  Rustic Deer Head DIY Christmas Ornament Supplies

Open the project in Cricut Design Space and prepare your machine and materials.

Place your basswood onto a StrongGrip mat and secure with tape.  Make sure not to have the wood too close to the side edges of the mat or it may jam your Cricut Maker.

Place the Knife Blade into clamp 'b' of your Cricut Maker and load the mat.   Fair warning - it's going to feel like FOREVER to cut these ornaments out.  I think it was 34 passes to cut all of the way through.  Fortunately, you can just walk away and do something else while this is going on.

Be really careful when you remove the ornaments from the mat.  They're delicate and could snap.

Cut a piece of faux fur to a size that will fit the ornament.

Use a hot glue gun to add the faux fur and a piece of baker's twine or ribbon to the back of the diy Christmas ornament.

Your Christmas ornament is ready!!!  If you care about how the back looks, you could cut and add an additional circle.
