Don’t ya just love all the adorable milk bottle DIYs? They are so stinking cute and I can’t get enough! So when I ran across some in the “dollar section” at Target, I didn’t waste any time putting them in my cart. (My only regret is that I didn’t buy them all!)
I knew exactly what I was going to do with these bottles.
I’ve got two little ones who are near and dear to my heart and by gosh, they needed some Milk bottles for Santa!
Since it’s Christmas and I was making some for the kiddos, I thought you needed a little freebie too. So join me in this very easy DIY with Free Santa Milk Bottle Cut File!

Scroll to the bottom for a printable list.
- Milk Bottles
- 651 Gloss Vinyl
- Transfer tape – I use contact paper from Dollar General. Besides the obvious benefit of only being $1, it’s also clear which makes it far easier to see where you’re placing your vinyl.
- Grab the Free Santa Milk Bottle cut files.
- Silhouette or Cricut Cutting Machine
- Cricut Cutting Mat (I prefer this brand over the Silhouette brand.)
- Cricut Weeding Tools (I prefer these over the Silhouette brand also.)
- Open your Free Santa Milk Bottle Cut File in your cutting machine software.
- Add the name. I used Century Gothic Font for the names, but you can mix it up and use whatever font you’d like. If you need help with this, check out How to Add Text in Silhouette Studio.
- Cut your 651 Permanent Vinyl (do not mirror).
- Weed your 651 Permanent Vinyl.
- Pick up your weeded vinyl with transfer tape and apply it to your milk bottle.
Important tip: To ensure a straight design, fill your milk bottle about halfway with water. Then use the fill line as a guide for applying your vinyl.
That’s it! Easy enough….right?!
How cute will these be sitting out for Santa to enjoy?!
