December Pinterest Challenge-- Decorating Glass with Vinyl

Welcome to the December Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!

This month I was searching for some quick and easy Christmas gift ideas when I saw this pin on Pinterest.  Unfortunately it led to an Etsy site but I figured I could make something just like it using my Circut and an old photo frame.

First I searched for free SVG Christmas themed files that I could use.  Then settled on this nativity scene. I knew I wanted the words O Holy Night under them and found this great file.

Once I had them both in my Cricut Design space mat and sized to just a bit smaller than my glass I was ready to cut it out in vinyl.

Then I weeded out all the parts of the image I didn't want on my glass.

I laid my glass over my design to get an idea of where I wanted to place it.

Then using transfer tape I gently peeled up my image and adhered it to my glass one small corner at a time making sure to rub out as many air bubbles as I possibly could.

I loved it!!

I had an odd sized frame so I decided to cut some gold wrapping paper to fit behind the glass and give my picture a nice finished look.

I then went on to make other pictures using various themes.  I sure hope our family members enjoy their gifts.  The hardest part was getting most of the bubbles out of the vinyl!

I just love these Pinterest Challenges!  They always get us to try something fun and new.

In January my boys and I made nail polish marbled mugs.
In February we tried out a new recipe for turkey & cornbread pot pie.
In March my boys worked on making a salt dough map.
In April my boys made some glittery mason jar luminaries. 
In May my oldest on and husband made a hand forged key holder
In June I made zucchini crust pizza for myself.
In July we made cheesy ranch Chex Mix
In August we made blueberry yogurt popsicles
In September we made mocha zucchini bread with dark chocolate chips
In October we made a reversible fall/winter sign for the front porch
In November we made Maple Apple Butter Muffins

  1. How clever! The possibilities are endless! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    1. They really are! I tried branching out a bit and trying multiple new projects this winter.

  2. Brilliant, and what lovely personal gifts they make too.
    I have cutting machine envy - I'm still a scissors or craft knife girl at the moment!

  3. Love this, really cool and very professional looking.

    1. Aw, thanks! The hardest part is getting all the bubbles to disappear. My first attempt ended was ripped up and I tried again.

  4. What wonderful gifts! Wish I was on your list. I must be the only blogger without a Circuit machine, maybe Santa will bring me one? Particularly like O Holy Night, the true meaning of the holiday.

    1. Aw, thank you! I'll let Santa know what a good girl you've been this year and maybe it will show up. :)

  5. I love this! I don't have a Circuit but want one to do great things like this. Great gifts need to be made!

  6. This is such a creative and fun gift idea!

  7. Wow, that turned out great! I did something similar, but with a beach theme. Such a fun project.

  8. These look awesome! I would love them as a gift. Adorable!

  9. Such a great gift! I agree - the hardest party is getting those bubbles out. I read somewhere to use a pin to pierce the vinyl to help get them out.

  10. Just another reason why I'd love to own a cricut! This is a great project, I love them all!

  11. These are great gift ideas! I have an older Cricut & vinyl, but I have yet to use it. What am I waiting for?!? :D

    1. I've had mine a year and it took me just about that long to really tackle using vinyl. :)

  12. I don't have a Cricut either but I sure do want one. You made some wonderful gifts.

  13. These turned out great! My favorite is the "life is what you bake it one"

    1. I think that's my favorite too. Such a cute saying.
