I thought I would show you the latest project I made with my Silhouette. Cause y'all already know I am in love with that machine right? I have had it for 2 years now and have made many, many crafts with it. They are also having a Black Friday sale y'all. I get questions every time I post a project about where to purchase a Silhouette. So I thought I would give y'all the details for today's promo at the bottom of this post. First let's see how to make a super quick deer candle wrap.
Soooo cute! I was inspired by the florentine deer pillar candles on Pottery Barn. I knew I could make something similar with my Silhouette.
The Silhouette can trace any image you find online. So I did some google image searches, found something I thought would work. I dropped it into the Silhouette software, repeated it a few times, then traced, and cut. The entire process probably took me 10 minutes.
I guess I was so excited to find the image and cut it out that I forgot to cut around the perimeter. I used my paper cutter to trim the candle wrap to size. I then wrapped it around a flameless candle and secured with double sided tape.
I chose white on white because that is similar to the Pottery Barn original. Of course, if you cut this with your Silhouette, you can choose any color paper you would like.
I love when the flameless candle is on and the light comes through the holes in the paper. It is just gorgeous.
So this one is not a direct imitation of the Pottery Barn candles but rather something that was inspired by them. However, for just the cost of a sheet of paper, I am over the moon in love with it! Want to see even more projects that I made with my Silhouette? Head on over to my craft cutter project gallery.
