Create This Simple and Stunning Winter Art for Under $5

Share this post

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.

Create simple winter art using a Silhouette for under $5

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
  • Glue
  • Silhouette

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.

Simple and stunning winter art for under $5

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.

Great frame upcycle. Gotta love those thrift store gems! :^) I wouldn't have thought to place the snowflakes on the mat, but it adds such wonderful dimension. Tucking away that idea. Thanks!
