 It was so hard to make a decision on what Christmas movie to chose. As I have a ridiculous amount of favourites on my to watch list every Christmas!! So after thinking about it for a bit I decided to go with a movie that all of my family enjoy. After all of the giggles and never ending quoting lines out of the movie Elf it was a perfect choice. Plus I have a love for snowflakes and dream to one day see a white Christmas. We usually experience really hot days here in Australia over the holidays with not a snowflake in sight!

The next lovely lady to share their awesomeness is Paula from Paula Tisch. So be sure to pop on over  and see her wonderful project and see what movie she chose!

  • Scissors
  • Christmas Wreath
  • Battery Operated Christmas Lights
  • and of coarse Elf the Movie 😉

Step 1 –  Give the entire window a sand removing any loose paint. Clean the window from any dirt and dust using window cleaner and paper towel.

Step 2 – Depending on how old your window is, remove any paint spatters using a paint scraper. The one I used was pretty badly painted  and needed some tidying up!

Step 3– Using your Silhouette Cameo and some White vinyl and cut out the words “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and 3 snowflakes. That was one of my favourite scenes in the movie watching Buddy the Elf and Jovie sign this song together! I used the font Nightstar and found the snowflakes in the free Silhouette library.  Apply to the window using transfer paper.

Step 4 – Wrap your lights around your wreath ensuring that the battery pack is at the back. The pain of glass was missing from the centre of this window so I just inserted the wreath into that space. If your window is completely intact use a command hook to hang your wreath.
