This project is another hint about next week’s giveaway. Sorry, it’s not a Silhouette, you don’t even need one for this project, but you can buy one for $100 off plus a free home décor CD using code “CRAP” through the end of the month.

I started with a boring old candle plate from IKEA.  It’s metal and was 2 or 3 dollars.

You could really use ANY plate or charger or cake stand.

Then I drew a pepperminty swirl shape on newspaper and cut it out.  You don’t have to do that, because I’ve uploaded it as a PDF for you.

Peppermint Swirl Template

I used the template with the line down the middle in both of my examples.  I just eyeballed the gap between the 2 pieces when I placed them.

Trace the template on some vinyl and cut it out.

Arrange the pieces on your plate to make sure you like how it’s going to look.

Then start sticking.  Trim any weird edges or overhang with an Exacto knife.

Love it so much you repeat the process on your red cake stand.

The best news?  You can peel it right off once the holidays are over.

I’m thinking of attempting a pillow using the same template.  Stay tuned for that.

    These are great, Char. And that green houndstooth in the background? Love that too!

  5. That looks very very cool. I admire people who are crafty…..I don't have a bone in my body that is able to do that kind of stuff.

    That was so very nice of you to leave a message on my blog regarding the loss of Matt. It meant a lot to me. He will be missed so very much, and it has been dreadfully hard.
    Thanks again for your kindness.
