Silhouette Challenge: Glittery Christmas Song Lyric Art

Christmas season is finally here and I’m so excited! I know a lot of people love to start celebrating in November (or even October!) but I’m a staunch supporter of not celebrating anything Christmas till after Thanksgiving. I mean, Thanksgiving deserves it’s own full attention, doesn’t it? But now that It’s December I can officially celebrate!

Christmas Song Lyric Art

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the music – isn’t it just the best? Every time I hear one on the radio it brings a wave of nostalgia and warm fuzzies from remembered Christmases past. One of my favorite Christmas hymns is O’ Holy Night – it’s just such a peaceful and beautiful song. So I decided to make some gorgeous glitter Christmas song lyric art to pretty up my front room for the holiday season as part of this months Silhouette Creator’s Challenge.

Previous challenges include: Harry Potter t-shirt,  British phone booth art,  Coldplay lyric tote bagcrochet hook storage boxbeach finds treasure bag, pumpkin spice tea towel, and a hello fall mason jar vase, and a utensils holder.

To get started, I opened up the design (available at the Silhouette Design Store) in my studio software. I then dragged the corners and sized it to fit a pretty weathered 8 x 10 frame.

Once everything was sized to fit in my frame, I sent it to my Silhouette CAMEO and had it cut out on Stencil Material. For this project I wanted the positive image from the stencil and not the negative relief, so I kind of reverse weeded it and then applied the stencil to a piece of cardstock.

After that, it was super easy! I just sprayed over the stencil with some gold spray paint and sprinkled gold glitter over the top while the paint was still drying.

After everything was fully dry I peeled off the reverse stencil and was left with a gorgeously beautiful piece of Christmas art that I can display for years to come. I love how subtle yet shimmery it is!

It’s perfect in my little reading corner nook – an ideal Christmas hangout spot with some twinkle lights, a fuzzy sheepskin, and a mug of peppermint cocoa. Mmmmm, yes.
