Last night we put up our Christmas tree. I love that it’s that time of the year! As we were putting up the tree and my kids would not leave the ornaments alone, it made me realize that I wouldn’t be able to put presents under the tree until it’s really close to Christmas. That made me a little sad because the tree looked so bare. So I decided to put some presents on the wall instead.
This is how I made them:
I took lots of fun red and green fabric, mod podge and contact paper. Vinyl would work just fine too, contact paper is just cheaper.
I cut the fabric and contact paper to the same size.
Then I put on a layer of mod podge onto the contact paper.
Carefully I pressed the fabric onto the contact paper, making sure to get out all of the air bubbles.
Now to cut the fabric. I used my Cricut Mini to cut the fabric. It did a great job (this was my first time cutting fabric with it). I use the depth of 4 and pressure of 3.
And here it the fun present all cut out.
For some of presents, I just cut out squares of fabric using my scissors. Then I cut out some bows out of sparkly vinyl. I used the depth of 3 and pressure of 2 to cut it out.
And here is another present.
I peeled off the back of the contact paper and stuck the present right onto the wall. I was impressed by how well it stuck to the wall, especially since my walls are so textured.
I put the rest of the presents up.
I just love the shapes and the colors of the presents, so much fun!
And now it looks like I have a few presents under my tree
