Deck the Halls

Happy Saturday everyone!  This is Julie from Mommy's Playroom.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We will be moving into our new house in another city only a couple of days before Christmas so I won't have much time to decorate.  I wanted to create a quick and easy home decor project  to make Christmas decorating a little faster.

I am a huge Teresa Collins fans so I decided to base my project on the reindeer silhouette on her December 25th Cricut cartridge.

I started with the reindeer silhouette using the fit to page feature to make it as large as possible.

The title was also cut from December 25th.  The paper is from Bo Bunny and is called St. Nick stocking.

The ornaments are from Christmas Cheer and were cut at 2.5".  The snowflake is from a Stampin' Up punch.  It was cut on setting 3.

I wanted to add a little sparkle to the project so I covered the title with Candy Cane Stickles.  Black Diamond, Green, and Candy Cane Stickles were used on the ornaments.  The snowflake is covered in Crystal Stickles. 

I wanted to decorate something other than a Christmas tree for my project so I used Stampin' Up silver elastic cord to tie the ornaments to the reindeer's antlers.  I think he looks adorable!
