I don’t know about you, but there’s just something about mugs that always reminds me of Christmas.
Maybe it’s the memory of putting out a mug of hot cocoa for Santa or just sitting around the fire with my own cup of hot cocoa while snow falls outside – but I love it!

How to Personalize Mugs with Cricut
There are a couple of different ways to personalize mugs with Cricut.
I will link out to other tutorials for the different techniques, but here is a brief overview:
Mug Press and Infusible Ink
Infusible Ink is Cricut’s version of sublimation. You can use it on shirts, canvas bags, coasters, and, of course, mugs!
They released their “Mug Press”, which makes it super easy to put permanent and professional designs on your mugs. This is my favorite way to personalize a mug just because the results look SO professional and are very much permanent.
- Cricut Infusible Ink Mugs – there are a variety of choices:
- Infusible Ink Sheets OR
- Infusible Ink Pens and Laser Copy Paper
- Lint Roller
- Cricut Mug Press

Tutorial: How to Make a Mug with Vinyl
- Iron-on Vinyl
- Heat Press with Mug Attachment OR
- Heat Gun
I think this is a bit more permanent than using regular viny, but it does require a few more tools. If you already have a heat press and are able to get a heat press attachment, that will probably be helpful!
Cricut Christmas Mug Ideas
There are TONS of amazing Christmas mugs you can make with your Cricut.
If you go into the project search page for Design Space and just search “Christmas Mug” or “Holiday Mug” you will see lots of ideas. I’ve done several of these projects myself, which I’ll share below with the links to the project.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Even if a design isn’t specifically for Infusible Ink, most are interchangeable. You can put the design into a template for a mug, or you can just measure the space on the mug and apply without the template.
- Beyond projects, Design Space has lots of fun images that are perfect for Christmas mugs as well!
CLICK FOR PROJECT – I used an image from Design Space and placed this on a mug press template.
CLICK FOR PROJECT – I kept messing up with this one, which is why the colors are different part way through. It still turned out fun. I LOVE stackable mugs.
CLICK FOR PROJECT – This was a layered design, which was pretty fun to do!
