Today’s adorable DIY Christmas PJs are sponsored by Cricut!
With Thanksgiving already here, everyone will be shifting their focus to Christmas soon if they haven’t already. I worked ahead a bit so I could show you how to make adorable DIY Christmas Pj’s using a Cricut Maker. There is usually no shortage of cute matching Christmas jammies to buy during this time of year but if you want a specific design or PJs that will fit the whole family, it’s easier to just make your own DIY Christmas jammies!

DIY Christmas PJs Instructions
Add the image to your Canvas. From here you can adjust the size and colors of your design.
I adjusted the colors to get a feel for how my design would look once the vinyl was cut. With gray and white striped jammies, I opted for a black and green design.
Be sure to select mirror image and adjust the number of project copies you need to make.
Prepare a standard grip mat with black iron-on vinyl (shiny side down) for your first cut. Click “make it” and follow the instructions from there. Use the same standard grip mat for your 2nd cut, the green vinyl.
Weed the excess vinyl from your design.
Iron on the 1st layer of the design using you Cricut EasyPress. Don’t worry if you don’t have one though, add it to your wishlist 😉 and use a regular iron in the meantime.
Add the 2nd layer of vinyl to your design. Then use the EasyPress again.
That’s it! Repeating the iron-on process for each pair of Christmas jammies you are making.
I think they turned out adorable. 😉 The simple design works for the whole family.
You can avoid matching Christmas PJs and just go with coordinating Christmas PJs, by using a variety of colors instead of the same two colors. I think glitter vinyl would also be fun, check out the selection of glitter vinyl at Cricut.com.
