Today I want to share a couple of super simple to make, yet darling to look at Christmas tree decorations…
:: Circle Garland ::
It looks like it takes a lot of time… but the trick is to fill an entire 12 x 12 cutting space with the circles in Silhouette studio, click cut and then while the CAMEO is working it’s magic, go take the cookies out of the oven, finish vacuuming, wrap a present etc. I am all about multitasking, especially around the holidays. Then, once all of the circles are cut out run them through the sewing machine. You’d be surprised at how quickly you can stitch 20+ feet of garland. Minutes, friends.
:: Fabric Snowflakes ::
These are some of my favorites! After ironing the sewable fabric interfacing to the back of white cotton fabric, place a 12″ piece on your mat and load it into the CAMEO. Then, trade out the black blade for the blue fabric blade. Once the snowflakes are cut place two of them back to back, iron them together and they are done. If you are feeling extra adventurous you can run them through the sewing machine to add the cute stitching.
:: Paper Bows ::
If I were decorating a tree of my own this year, it would be simple, lots of white lights and these little paper bows. I just love them. They cut out in just one piece too which makes them easy to assemble.
:: 3d Pinecone ::
Remember this free shape from a couple weeks back? It also looks beautiful on the tree!
These shapes work great as ornaments on the tree… and how cute would they be as accents on your holiday gift wrap too?
Have you used the Silhouette for holiday decorating? We’d love to see..send me an email with photos and I’ll share them here on the blog this Friday!
Thanks for stopping by today!
