Put your feet up and at the same time let everyone know what you’re craving with these funny Christmas socks, made with your Cricut! These socks make a great stocking stuffer.
We’re on Day 15 of 25 Days of Cricut Christmas—where is November going? Today we’re making one of my favorite stocking stuffers…funny Christmas socks!
If you’d like to get this series in an ebook format PLUS all of the SVGs needed to make all 25 projects check out the 25 Days of Cricut Christmas eBook Bundle!
These types of funny socks have been floating around for awhile. The trick is when you’re sitting down with your feet up, other people can read them and get you whatever your socks are requesting. For this project, I have four different holiday treats!
- Hot Cocoa
- Candy Canes
- Fruit Cake
- Egg Nog
You can find blank socks just about everywhere. I got a big set on Amazon (see the link in the supply list below), but your local Dollar Tree, Walmart, Target, or other store-that-sells-socks will have great options.
You want socks with a completely blank bottom. No words or bumps/ribbing, and no weird grippy bits. Smooth socks work the best—save those fuzzy socks for another time.

Christmas Sock Instructions
Upload the Funny Christmas Socks file to Cricut Design Space
To start, upload the socks file to Cricut Design Space (see Uploading SVG Files to Cricut Design Space if you need help).
Once the file is onto our canvas, select the image and click Ungroup twice at the top of the Layers Panel on the left. That way we can work with each sock individually.
Next, you’ll resize each set to fit on your socks. Measure the bottom of your socks. The useable area for mine is about 2.5″ wide by 4.5″ tall, for example. Resize each sock so they fit into your particular dimensions.
I decided to cut these in black and white for my socks, so I changed the colors to black and white. Recolor to whatever color you’re using for your socks.
Now we are ready to cut the file! Click Make It in the upper right and you’ll be taken to the Prepare Screen. Here, we want to click the “mirror” slider for any and all mats you are using. This will ensure that the words face the correct direction when ironed onto the socks.
Then click Continue.
Cut Your Iron On Vinyl for Your Funny Christmas Socks
On the Make Screen, you’ll set your material to iron on. Make sure you have your fine point blade in your machine, insert your mat, and your Cricut will cut your project!
Weed Your Iron On Vinyl
Next we’re going to “weed” the negative space from around our image. I have an extensive post about Weeding Iron On Vinyl, which you’ll want to read—tons of tips and tricks to making it easier.
Adhere Your Iron On Vinyl
Now we are going to adhere our iron on vinyl to the socks. Place your image onto the sock, centering it.
Use your EasyPress or Iron to adhere the iron on vinyl to the sock. Learn more about Using Iron On Vinyl.
Carefully peel back the carrier sheet, making sure the iron on vinyl is adhered.
Repeat with the remaining socks and you have yourself a funny little stocking stuffer. Everyone will love these funny Christmas socks!
