Dreaming Tree Gingerbread Tea Light Ornament

My husband needed an ornament for an ornament exchange at work, and I knew just the one I wanted to make. This Gingerbread Tea Light Ornament from Dreaming Tree is easy, yet impressive. 

I decided I wanted to have a wreath instead of a heart and bow on the front of my gingerbread house. I used contour to hide the heart and the hole above it.

One of the things I enjoy about having a Cricut Access subscription is having a wide variety of images to choose from when I want to quickly customize a project to suit my taste. I used the bow and two of the layers of this wreath from the Create A Critter 2 image set. It cut beautifully at just over an inch tall from Cricut Glitter Cardstock

Supplies I used:
Cricut Glitter Cardstock
Vellum (Red and White)
Xyron Create-A-Sticker Mini 2.5″ Sticker Maker
Glue Dots (5mm)
Double-sided Tape (1/4″)
Blending Tool
Baker’s Twine
Battery-Operated Tea Light

I had never inked glitter cardstock before this, but I liked how it turned out. I put the twine through the holes in the roof prior to gluing it to the house, just to make sure I didn’t have trouble getting it through. I used glue dots and double-sided tape so that everything stays together.

The assembly is pretty straightforward, but I always pick up tips or tricks from Leo’s assembly video.

  1. Hi Lydia, I just got a Cricut Explore 2 & can’t wait to learn how to use it. I just loved the Gingerbread Tea Light Ornament & would like to know how to get the cartridge. I live in Australia so can it be sent here?
    Thank you, Margie Manning
