Hi! Its Michelle From Chalkboardblue, and I wanted to share with you two different and fun ideas to help Celebrate the Holidays! This gold foil Garland is fun to make to decorate a tree or add some flair to a gift! You can make your garland whatever size you may need it to be. I made this one smaller to be a simple accent to a tree.
This foil Garland was made using Printable foil that is adhesive. It is made by Silhouette and is so great to work with! I cut mine using my Silhouette Cameo. I made several circles sized them roughly 1 in. x 1 in. I cut the deer at roughly 1.5 x 2 in.
I also had to make the deer on one side opposite so they will stick together evenly on each side of the jute with sticky sides together.
Take enough length of string or jute to complete your garland. Peel and stick your bottom circle or deer,
take another circle or deer and cover it on the top sticking the two items together.
continue until you feel you have enough garland to cover your tree or accent a gift. On my garland, I did a pattern of 5 circles and then 1 deer etc.
The foil deer by itself also makes a cute accent to a gift too! Wouldn’t they make a darling Cupcake Topper?
Some other fun Christmas items you can create are your own gift tags! These tags were made using different Christmas items from around the house and a camera.I simply used an old window, a berry wreath and a candle.
I shot different pictures at different angles, and turned the picture black and white. Resized them to 2.5 x 3 inches, typed To and From on the picture, printed it, glued it to some card stock, cut the card stock to a shape of a tag, punched a hole and tied some twine!
This next one is one of my favorites! I wrapped up a box with a bow, got my little one to start to open it and took pictures of the process! I resized it and made it into a tag too!
There you have it, two simple and fun items to ring in the Season!
