Spring is in the air! I have been busy spring cleaning and organizing my home. There’s something about this season that makes me want to give everything a fresh new look.
Have you seen Paper Crafts’ newest special issue called Handmade Home Decor? This inspiring new resource is packed with a wide assortment of clever home decor pieces! Everything is organized by season and gives you ideas to make your home more beautiful all throughout the year.
I decided that it was time my pantry got a makeover. I love that I can use tools and products from my craft room to decorate my home!
I used my Silhouette die-cutting machine and some adhesive vinyl to create labels for each of my glass canisters.
Dressing up your pantry is so easy to do! You can find inexpensive canisters at thrift sales and big box stores. I’ve created a set of labels for you that can be downloaded here.
Here’s a short video on how to use the download along with your Silhouette to cut each of the designs out using adhesive vinyl. (If you would like to create additional labels, download the Mustachio font and use the type tool in the Silhouette software.)
Once you’ve cut out each of your designs, remove the excess vinyl. The Silhouette hook tool is helpful when removing smaller sections.
Carefully peel back the transfer paper, separating it from the adhesive vinyl backing. Your vinyl design should cling to it. Apply your design onto the canister. Use the scraper tool once again to press over your design.
Carefully peel off the transfer paper and reveal your custom canister!
If you don’t own a Silhouette but would like to dress up your canisters, try using other products from your craft room. Alphabet stickers, stencils, or chalkboard labels would make beautiful substitutions!
Have you started any spring home decor projects of your own? I’d love to hear your fresh ideas! One lucky commenter will win a $10 gift certificate from Silhouette America! Just make sure to leave your comment by Friday, March 22nd at 5 pm MDT.
