Learn how to make this fun mini banner Christmas ornament with this easy tutorial.

I love making homemade Christmas ornaments and have quite a collection that I have made over the years. Some of my favorites are my felt sachet snowflake ornament, peppermint bath bomb ornament, buffalo check ornament, felt candy ornament and wood slice ornaments. I’ve added another homemade ornament to my collection this year…a mini banner ornament. Ready to learn how to make it? It’s super easy with my SVG files and a few basic supplies.

  1. Grab the Happy Holly Days SVG file in my shop.
  2. Cut your fabric to your desired size. Remember to leave a little extra at the top because it will be folded over the dowel/popsicle stick.
  3. Place your popsicle stick or dowel at the top and fold the fabric over. Secure the fabric with hot glue.
  4. Cut out the SVG file onto heat transfer vinyl (HTV) using a Silhouette or Cricut. I like to use Siser Easyweed HTV because it is easy to work with and holds up well. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to cut heat transfer vinyl with a Silhouette. If you want to use multiple colors of vinyl, this tutorial will show you how to cut out multiple colors of vinyl. 
  5. Weed away the excess vinyl.
  6. Place an EasyPress Mat under the banner. Use the EasyPress 2 to adhere the vinyl to the banner at 325 degrees for 15 seconds. I recommend an EasyPress 2 instead of an iron because you can set the exact temperature and the plate provides more even heat. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to use a Cricut EasyPress 2.
  7. Wait until the carrier sheet has cooled and then remove the carrier sheet
  8. Tie the baker’s twine around each end of the popsicle stick and embellish with a pom pom banner (optional)

    My Happy Holly Days SVG Bundle comes with 4 different holiday sayings so you can make several versions of mini Christmas banner ornaments. Mix and match to make a set!


How do I open these files in my Silhouette software?
Save the file to your computer. If it is a zip file, unzip it. Open your Silhouette software and select FILE>OPEN and navigate to where you saved the file. You can also import the file(s) to your Silhouette library by clicking FILE>LIBRARY>IMPORT TO LIBRARY and navigating to where you saved the file.

Can I open SVG files in the Silhouette Basic Edition?
No. You must have Silhouette Designer Edition or higher to open SVG files. If you have Silhouette Basic Edition, you can use PNG files and convert the PNG to a cut file.

Can this file be used with a Cricut?
Yes. Any SVG file can be used in Cricut Design Space
