Vinyl Christmas Tree, for small spaces or children!

*** Check here for your opportunity to win $25 worth of vinyl from my store! ***

When I got my vinyl cutter I vowed to never be one of those people with vinyl on everything. But let's face it.... vinyl is cool! 

We will be out of town for Christmas this year, so getting a "real" Christmas tree was not a priority for us.  In fact, it was my husband who suggested we use an old shower door for a vinyl Christmas tree! Good idea, honey :)


My amazing sister-in-law had this great idea to let her two little boys pick out their own miniature tree to decorate for Christmas.  They boys stick to playing with the toys on "their" tree, and leave the beautiful "grown-up" tree alone. 

 I think doing this vinyl tree would be another great way to do that-- it is indestructable, and 
kids can even draw on the glass
(or whatever background) with dry-erase markers to decorate and re-decorate the tree all season long! 


This was also a perfect idea because we don't happen to have a lot of spar room in our cute, little house ;) 

Materials:


  • Vinyl Tree
  • Vinyl Star
  • Shower Door
  • Ornaments
  • Suction Cups
Directions:

1. Apply vinyl to shower door



2. Place door in desired location

3. Attach ornaments with suction cups





Hahaha... Isn't it awesome? All it takes is a little creativity, and vinyl can be used in the most incredible ways! I love it! 

Happy Holidays!
