The 12 Projects of Christmas 2020 - Christmas Bunting

Post by RebeccaJ »

On the third day of Christmas Vectric made for me… Decoupage Christmas Bunting!

This is a fairly simple project that you can machine in no time to add to your Christmas décor! I’ve always liked the idea of making wood bunting and have only got around to it now, just in time for the Christmas festivities. I chose to use Birch Plywood as I just love the look of it and better still I love that when you cut into it the layers that form the sheet are exposed, adding furthermore dimension and interest to finished piece.

You can watch the video here:



The project consists of three toolpaths, VCarving for the letters and two profile toolpaths to cut the hanging holes and the bunting shapes.

To finish I used the art of decoupage, where I used a Christmas themed napkin, carefully cutting the prints I wanted to use, and using modpodge and water stuck it in place! I really like this technique as it is quick to do, it’s effective and it doesn’t require you to be skilled with a paintbrush! I used some Christmas ribbon to thread the bunting and this would be great to hang around a fireplace mantle or on a wall!

I hope you enjoy this project and if you fancy having a go for yourself then you can download the files from here:

Happy Making!

Thanks Michael :D Me too! It's such an easy way to decorate things, I wanted to decoupage the slot together giraffe project (from the UGM) in a zebra print but I ran out of time! Hey maybe over the holidays I can get on with it :lol:
