Directions

Here are the directions to make this beautiful decoration for Christmas!

Paint the Crate

Paint the miniature crate with a matte or chalk paint. I prefer white chalk paint as it has the best farmhouse effect. Let it dry.

Cut the Design

Using Cricut design space import the SVG or PNG cut file. Once imported, size to the size of the crate you are using.

I use a measuring tape to be sure what the inches are, then match that in the program. Then navigate to contour and remove the trees as these will be cut with plaid sticker vinyl. If you want it all the same color then simply don’t contour.

Place the black sticker vinyl on the blue cutting mat.

Add Design To Crate

Place the transfer tape on the design and scrape with a scraper tool or old gift card. This allows the design to stick firmly to the transfer tape.

Peel back the transfer tape slowly making sure the design sticks to the tape.

For plaid trees

If you are doing the trees in plaid then contour the design to not have the writing and just the trees. Cut trees on plaid vinyl on the blue mat. Follow the above instructions after that.
