Christmas Tree Stencil Art

Christmas Tree Stencil Art

I know this is going to ruffle a few feathers, maybe even elicit a few eye rolls but it has to be said. I have been listening to Christmas songs since September. I know, I am crazy but I just LOVE Christmas. So it is only fitting that some of the new shapes from Hero Arts are beautiful Christmas shapes. I was particularly drawn to the Jingle Tree shape which features the words from the popular Christmas song in the shape of a tree. I loved the typography feel of it and thought it would shine if it were front and center on a Holiday mantel or shelf. Inspired by the shape of the tree, I decided to finish off the mantel with other natural things giving it a winter wonderland feel.

Fabric Ink_Christmas Art

I used the Fabric Ink Starter kit to create the Jingle Tree art. The fabric I chose was a piece of drop cloth. I thought the contrast between the black ink and the light colored drop cloth would go along nicely with the neutral winter wonderland theme I was going for. The tree measured 10.865 x 8.585 inches. After I cut out out the image with my Cameo, I carefully weeded out the tree image. Be really careful when you do this that you don’t lose any of the small pieces inside the letters. I lost 2 of the pieces that went to two letter N’s before I realized that I had to be more careful preparing the vinyl.

Fabric Ink Sponge_Jingle_tree

I wanted to go with a more worn and distressed look so I opted to use the sponge instead of the foam brush to apply the paint to the drop cloth. It turned out just as I had envisioned it would! I was worried at first that the lighter parts wouldn’t show up as well but they were fine!

  1. Beautiful work Lisa!

  2. Beautiful! I would definitely put this in my home. And I think I have you beat for Christmas music…my husband listens to it year round, so it’s usually playing if he’s home. 🙂 We’re going on about 16 months straight. Kind of appropriate since I leave my Christmas decorations up for several months, too. Hee hee! 😉

  3. Love this Lisa!! Looks great with the Christmas decor!

  4. Whoa! I LOVE the way this turned out! I have to to give the fabric medium a try!

  5. What a fun way to create a Christmas tree. yours is beautiful TFS.
