Ever since I completed by first iron-on vinyl project on wood, I have been hooked! The ease of applying iron-on vinyl to wood is exceedingly better than trying to adhere regular vinyl to wood. The heat causes the iron-on vinyl to seep into the wood fibers, causing (in my opinion) a better adhesion than regular vinyl. It is all that I have used on my wood projects since trying this Wood Globe project a few years ago.
For this ornament project, I’m using a circle wood ornament that I picked up at a local craft store. This one is about 3 1/4″ in diameter. It is plain wood, but I did apply a light coat of white paint. I have used iron-on vinyl successfully on painted wood, but always do a trial area before applying iron-on vinyl to an entire painted project. The heat may discolor some paint, and thick paint may prohibit the iron-on vinyl from adhering well.

- Circle Wood Ornament

- Cricut StandardGrip cutting mat
