Christmas Pajamas are one of my very favorite annual traditions. In the past, I’ve always purchased them from the store, but this year I wanted them to be extra special! I’ve been using my Cricut Maker for all of my holiday decorations this year and as I was searching Design Space I found the cutest little deer silhouette. I instantly knew we needed some matching shirts to go with our handmade pants! You can find my post with all the details on the free patterns I used to make the pants here.

My kids love to dress up so I thought it would be so much fun to plan a photo shoot with Christmas props. During the holiday season, spare time is hard to come by so I knew there was no way I was going to cut all of those props by hand.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut out all of the adorable photobooth props and my kids had a blast playing with them during our photoshoot! How fun would these props be to use at a family Christmas party? The photo booth props are incredibly easy to make and they take hardly any time at all!

Christmas Photobooth Props Tutorial

All of the props are made from Cricut felt. I’ve found the Cricut felt is a bit stiffer than most which makes it perfect for this project. You need something with a bit of structure so they will stand up straight without flopping over.

Step 1. Carefully weed the design and remove the extra vinyl.

Step 2. Prepare the fabric. Each type of Iron-On has specific ironing instructions.

Step 3. Position weeded image on the fabric  with the iron-on against the fabric.

Step 4. Preheat the shirt with the EasyPress, place the iron-on on top of the shirt and press for 30 seconds with the EasyPress.

Step 5. Allow fabric and iron-on to cool and carefully peel away the clear lining.

Step 6. Repeat this process until you’ve made enough shirts for your entire family. I found all of my shirts at Target.

EasyPress
Cricut just recently released the EasyPress which is the answer to every iron-on diva’s dreams!
It comes with a quick reference chart which tells you exactly how much time your iron-on project needs to be pressed for and at what temperature, which removes all of the guesswork!
It features a square plate which heats evenly throughout the entire plate, unlike an iron which can have hot or cold spots that can lead to your iron-on burning or not adhering completely. It also has a comfortable grip that allows you to firmly press down without worry of burning your hands. I don’t even want to admit how many times I’ve burned my hands on my current iron.

I’m still dying over the cuteness of this picture! I’m sure one day they will hate me for this!!! Ha!
