Do you decorate for winter? I honestly prefer it. Winter has a tendancy to start here in mid November and over stay it’s welcome well into spring. To brighten my home a little I try to decorate for the season sometime around Thanksgiving with items that I can leave up until Spring. This week I created simple winter art for under $5! Something that will work well on my Christmas mantle but that can stay up well after the holiday has passed.
If you are intrigued by the “Under $5” part of this post be sure to scroll down and check out the other amazing projects you can do with your Silhouette for just a few dollars.
- Here is what I used for this project:
- Frame – thrift store gem
- Scrap cardstock – a new pack of shades of blue paper is available at most craft stores for a few dollars
- Ballpoint pen – you know you have one lying around
I purchased my Silhouette a few years back and it was one of the best crafting decisions I have ever made. I use it weekly and love how creative I can be with my crafts. It also saves me tons of time as well as money because, in this case, I can cut my own snowflakes instead of buying them.
Silhouette Projects from Creative Ramblings
I started with two designs from the Silhouette store. I am pretty good about checking their site once a week and downloading the free shape that is offered. Both of these designs were free at one point. I used the sleigh from one and snowflake from another.
I used a blue pen and the sketch function for the words and cut the sleigh out of blue cardstock.
I cut a couple snowflakes from shades of blue and added them to the mat of the frame.
Such a simple project, and made from supplies you probably already have at home.
