If you are looking for some easy DIY Disney Christmas ornaments that you can make with your Cricut then you will love what I have in store for you over the next week! Each day this week I am going to show you how to make a different Disney Christmas ornament featuring a different Disney character!
To start with, find a Christmas ornament design and shape that you like. If you want to use the exact same one that I am using for this project, you can download my free SVG file HERE. If you have never used a SVG file before, please read my information HERE about how to download them, save them and upload them to Design Space.

Disney Christmas Ornaments – Baymax
Once you have the basic Christmas ornament SVG uploaded into Design Space, click on the image and adjust the size. I decided to make mine 5″ in height. You can either drag the double arrow in the lower right corner of the image to resize, or enter the exact height you want in the Size area on the top panel. I circled the size area in blue at the top of this image for you to make it easy for you to find.
This is going to be a super easy DIY Disney Christmas ornament since the Baymax character is already white, and the Christmas ornament shape is white. All we have to do is add his eyes. To start with, click on the Shapes button on the left side of the screen and insert a circle. Next, size that circle down and change the color to black. To change the color just click on the square in the Operations area, to the right of the words Basic Cut. I have this area pointed out with a blue arrow in the image below.
Once you have the first eye the size and color you want, we want to make a copy of that for the other eye. I like to use Duplicate for this since it combines the functions of copy and paste into one easy tool. To Duplicate you can either right click on the circle and choose Duplicate from the drop down list that appears. The second way is to click on the circle and then click on the Duplicate button in the upper right corner of the screen. I have both options pointed out for you in blue in the image below.
Next I want to add the line that connects the eyes for Baymax. To do this I go back to the Shapes button and insert a square. Once you click on the square you will notice there are four icons in the corners of the square. The one in the lower left is the padlock icon. When this is locked and you resize the square everything will stay in perfect proportion to each other. If you click on the padlock to unlock it, you can then resize the square disproportionately, which allows you to make a rectangle.
When you make that rectangle long and skinny, it becomes a line, like I have shown in the image below. Make sure to change the color of this line to black to match your eyes.
Now we need to line up the line and the eyes. To do this, I select both circles and the line and choose the Align option. From that pull down I will select Center Vertically. I have marked this with a blue arrow in the image below to help you find it.
Now that the eyes for our Baymax character ornament are all lined up we want to weld them together. Weld will join anything that is touching or overlapping into one item. When you select both the circles and the line, then click Weld in the lower right corner of your screen it will make them all one piece. I have pointed out the Weld button with a blue arrow in the image below.
That’s it! You have now designed a Baymax Disney Christmas ornament in Design Space! Now click the Make It button and cut out the pieces. The next step is putting this all together.
Assemble your Easy DIY Disney Christmas Ornaments
Below are the pieces of the Baymax Disney Christmas ornament cut from cardstock. After I remove them from the Cricut cutting mat, I will be using a tape runner and a Zig glue pen to put the pieces together.
First I start with my tape runner and use that to apply double sided tape to the back of the white ornament piece. Then I place that layer right on top of the black piece.
Now it is time to use my Zig glue pen. I love these pens! They allow me to put glue exactly where I want it. For this project I added some glue to the top of the black area above the ornament, then I placed the gray pieces over the glue. Then I applied glue to the back of the eyes piece and placed that on top of the white ornament shape.
Disney Christmas Ornaments Video – Baymax
If you are the type of person that would prefer to watch a video to learn the steps to making these easy DIY Disney Christmas Ornaments then you will be happy to know I will provide a video at the end of each tutorial this week. You can also watch them all on my YouTube channel.
Where can you use these easy DIY Disney Christmas ornaments?
Since I made these out of cardstock they would be perfect to use as gift tags. Pick a Disney character for each member of your family and then all of their gifts are tagged with their favorite character. If you have small children or pets, and are worried about fragile ornaments being broken, making these cardstock ornaments might be a great option for you.
Another idea would be to make a variety of Disney Christmas ornaments out of iron on vinyl and apply them to a Christmas tree skirt or table runner. Leave me a comment and let me know which character you would make and how you would use them for your own Disney Christmas decorating.
