With monograms all the rage you cannot find a more personalized gift idea that is budget-friendly and so easy to make with the help of a Cricut Explore Air 2 machine! This scarf and glove gift set is perfect for Teachers, girlfriends, tweens, and secret Santa gifts!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut.
The opinions and text are all mine.
Adding a monogram takes a regular gift and takes it to the ultimate personalized gift! I got on the monogram bus way after it was cool and now that I started, I cannot stop!
If you don’t know how to create a monogram, you can check out my How to design a monogram in Cricut Design Space here. That post uses several of the free fonts on my 30+ Best Monogram font post.
If you want to stick with monograms and fonts within Cricut Design Space, you can check out these 5 monograms I made to add to the Make it Now section and they all use Cricut Access fonts and shapes!

How to Make Monogrammed Scarf & Gloves
Time needed: 30 minutes.
Create personal monogrammed scarf and gloves gift sets perfect for holiday handmade gift ideas!
- Cut Fleece to Length
Using a self-healing mat, acrylic ruler and rotary cutter, square your fleece and cut it to size. Mine was 60 inches long and about 8 inches wide.
- Fringe the Ends of the Scarf.
Using fabric scissors, cut fringe along both ends of the scarf. Mine were about 3/4 inch wide and about 2 inches long. We will tie these cute later!
- Create your monogram in Cricut Design Space
Using one of my tutorials above, create your monogram in Design Space and size to your scarf and gloves.
- Cut your iron on
I am using SportFlex iron on (will need standard grip mat) for the gloves so they have some stretch and Everyday Iron-on for the scarf.
You may find detailed instructions on cutting iron on with a Cricut here.
- Weed Iron-on
Using a weeding hook, remove excess iron-on leaving only your monogram.
- Apply Iron-on
Consult the Heat Guide to find the appropriate settings. I used my EasyPress 6×7 for the scarf and my EasyPress mini for the gloves. I pressed and use the protective sheet for both applications.
You may find detailed instructions for Correctly Applying Iron-on Vinyl here.
- Tie Fringe
Tie each strip of fringe in a knot. This will give the ends of the scarf a more decorative look!
TIP: Be sure to note on the Heat Guide if the carrier sheet is warm or cool peel!
I did not take my own instructions on How to Use Cricut SportFlex, and I rushed and peeled off the carrier sheet when it was still warm. You can see how it wrinkled the iron on! Don’t be Cheryl. Wait until it is cool, lol!
I made a gift tag and tied and bow and you now have the cutest handmade and personalized gift idea using a Cricut Explore Air 2. I will share soon how to make the gift tags!
You can also use your maker with this project!
Handmade and Personalized gifts do not have to cost a fortune! They can be cute and simple like this and it lets people know you took the time to craft something especially for them! My favorite kind of gift to give!
