Have fun making this DIY red Christmas truck SVG ornament for Christmas.
Red trucks are a classic Christmas tree ornament. However, these special ornaments can be expensive. You can make your own instead to save money and have a fun craft to do with your family!
What To Do With Your Vintage Red Truck SVG
I used this SVG file to make DIY ornaments for our Christmas tree.
People have been decorating their Christmas trees with red trucks for a very long time. You will also see the vintage red truck on Christmas pillows, mugs, dish towels, and so on. It’s a Christmas classic.
How To Get The SVG File
To make this handmade ornament, you will need the SVG file. You can buy the SVG file here.
Once you’ve finalized your purchase, you will get an instant download link.
The downloaded files will show as a zipped folder on your computer. Once you unzip the file, you will have access to your SVG file, plus a DXF file, AI file, and EPS file which you can also use for other crafts.
Make sure you save this somewhere on your computer that you can easily find it!
What do I need to make this DIY Christmas Ornament?
If you are going to use this red Christmas truck SVG file to make Christmas ornaments as I did, then you will need paint markers, MDF board, glue, and a laser cutter.
If you don’t want to use an MDF board, you can also use any laser safe wood.
How To Make The Red Christmas Truck SVG Ornament
Since you will be using a laser cutter for this project, you can upload the SVG file into the software your laser cutter uses.
As I said before, I used MDF board. It’s cheap and you can find it any craft or hardware store. However, you can also use real wood if you would prefer.
Next, you will use your laser cutter to print out each of the cut files.
Once each piece is cut out, you can use your paint markers to color each of the pieces. This part is really fun because you can decorate your red truck however you want.
You can include your name, the date, a Christmas quote, or a message if you are giving this to someone as a handmade gift.
Once all the pieces are decorated the way you want, you just need to glue them together.
And that’s all you need to do to turn this vintage truck SVG into a cute Christmas ornament.
Can I use a cutting machine instead of a laser cutter?
If you want to use MDF board, then you will need to use a laser cutter since cutting machines can’t cut this kind of material.
If you only have access to a cutting machine, you can use paper or card stock instead. But, the ornament will not be as strong.
What else can I make with this red Christmas truck SVG?
Since you get multiple file types, you can use this design to make lots of different crafts including:
- decorative pillows
- vinyl decals
You can use it to make any physical product you want.
Just upload the file into something like Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Cricut Design Space, or Silhouette Studio to make any changes you need.
