Hello all you Lori Whitlock fans!!! I'm here today to share with you how much FUN I had making this home decor project! If you love to layer, this is for you!!! I'm up on the Lori Whitlock blog as a guest designer and I would LOVE it if you popped over and left a comment over there if you love this project! :)
I fell in love with this 3d Frame Decor Christmas Tree (HERE is the link to Lori's Shop)(HERE is the link in the Silhouette shop) right away. I had to have it. I cut out all the parts using some Doodlebug Designs paper. Since the layers are color coordinated it was super easy to put together.
Now comes the fun part - layering and decorating! I stitched around the edge of the cream layer. I wasn't going to because, well, I am not the best "stitcher", but I just went really really slowly and I think it turned out really nicely! Don't be afraid to try it. The worst that will happen is you have to cut a new piece. Tip: start at the bottom as you are going to cover it up with presents anyway! ;)
I used various layers of foam adhesive and even stacked the foam adhesive dots on top of one another to get the amount of layering I wanted.
I added some stickles to the star, bows, and presents. Something about Christmas makes me want to sparkle EVERYTHING! ;)
Next I added some sprinkles (sparkle enamel dots) to the tree and the presents. I attached my sentiment directly to the bottom of the box.
I grabbed a little gingerbread man doodlepop and a heart sticker as well as a mini paper clip and added them to the bottom.
I finished it off with some holly enamel shapes and voila! Adorable home decor piece. I love that it stands up on it's own and folds flat for storage. This one is going to be one of my favorite things to put up every year and the fact that I made it from scratch only makes it more special.
So if you have been wanting to try some home decor for the holidays and are being just a little shy, grab the 3d Frame Decor Christmas Tree cut file and give it a whirl! I promise you will be so happy with the result and how easy Lori's files make it!
