"HO HO HO" VINYL CHRISTMAS POTS & FREE CUT FILE
I thoroughly enjoy working with vinyl to create a custom look to my home's decor, especially for the holidays.
I took simple galvanized pots and added text with my Silhouette CAMEO that's easy to remove once the season is over.
To create this project, you will need the following:
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
1. Download this SVG file. Insert the vinyl into your machine, bottom side down. You do not need a cutting mat with vinyl. Adjust the blade to 1 and send your project to cut. Then divide the text into three separate parts.
2. Cut three sheets of transfer paper, large enough to cover the text.
3. Working one pot at a time, pull away the vinyl you don't need, and apply the transfer paper (after pulling away the sticky film) to the text. Press firmly on the letters. Pull the paper away gently and you'll see the letters now sticking to the transfer paper.
4. Apply the transfer paper to the centre of the pot. Press and use the scraper tool over the letters to smooth them out. Finally, pull away the transfer paper.
I added a few sprigs of blue spruce from the yard to the pots, and instantly I got a whiff of that wonderful forest scent.
If you don't have a Silhouette CAMEO, and would like to take on projects like this, Amazon is offering their starter bundle at a really awesome price right now (and just in time for the holidays!) It includes the machine, as well as two cutting mats and blades, sketch pens, and free cut files from the Silhouette store for a whole month.
Thank you for taking a look today friends. I hope you enjoyed this post. Do you enjoy working with vinyl as well? I haven't done enough projects with it, but I hope to change that in the new year!
