Silhouette America has released a new starter kit that comes with 10 exclusive designs and everything you need to make these super cute DIY ornaments. The Holiday Ornament Kit comes with 6 plastic ornaments, 6 hooks, cardstock, and the 10 exclusive designs to make these for your tree.
Supplies for your DIY Ornament
- Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette Portrait (any version)
- Foam Adhesive Squares
- Xyron Tape Runner
- Silhouette Holiday Ornament Kit
I found some cute Crate Paper Merry Day cardstock paper pads at my local Tuesday Morning store which is a great place to find some craft supplies if you didn't know by now. They have a new line called Snowflake which is a great substitute using a lot of the same color palette.
How to create your diy ornaments
Time needed: 1 hour.
DIY Ornament Instructions
- Redeem your Silhouette Design Store designs
Included with your Holiday Ornament Kit is an exclusive design card. Redeem your gift card using the code on the back and the designs will show up in your downloads
- Cut your cardstock
I used the Merry Days collection from Crate Paper and cut them into 6″ squares. I was able to cut multiple of the same image out of 4 different cardstocks so that I could keep my ornament organized.
- Layer your cardstock for your DIY ornament
Use the foam adhesive squares and place them on the back of your cut images and layer from front to back. I used my Xyron Adhesive Runner to attach the top layer which is more intricate and would show the adhesive squares.
- Put the design into your plastic ornaments
I put a little crinkle paper that I had hanging around but some faux snow would be fun too. Place the small stuff in first and then place your design face down and then attach the back.
Watch because it can puff in certain areas because of the foam squares. If that happens, just use some scissors to trim the edge a tiny bit where it's puckering.
- Attach the hook to your ornament
Wind the hook through the top two holes and then hang on your adorable Christmas tree.
I used a lot of different patterns for these DIY ornaments but the kit comes with two colors of cardstock with 6 different colors in total. Those colors didn't quite match my Christmas decor so I wanted to use lots of patterns. I used the more busy patterns toward the front and some white cardstock for the Merry Christmas banner.
The kit comes with 10 exclusive designs and I was assigned this Merry Christmas design and there are 9 other bloggers who created their own assigned design. I'll link to them when I get the links but I wanted to show mine off first because it's July and it's Christmas in July.
