3D Winter Chalet Scene Instructions
Digital die cut template for this winter scene ornament coming soon to the Silhouette Online Design Store.
To complete this project you will also need glue, adhesive foam squares, one half of a clear plastic 80mm ornament, fake snow or glitter, ribbon or bakers twine and glitter glue. A washer or small coin and some tape is also recommended.
Cut all template pieces. Cut two of the scallop edge base piece. Glitter cardstock makes for a magically sparkly ornament!
Adhere the smaller circle to the larger circle background. Use a pattern paper if desired. Use dimensional foam squares for added dimension.
Glue and adhere the trees to the snowy layer as shown.
Adhere the snowy tree layer to the base layer with foam squares for dimension.
Adhere to the base layer.
Glue tree accents to the middle layer.
Adhere middle layer to the first layer with adhesive foam squares.
Glue and adhere the chalet shape to the top layer. Add a contrasting door if desired. Glue and attach tree accents.
Adhere top chalet layer to the middle layer with adhesive foam squares.
Adhere all layers to the base scallop layer (if a clear ornament is not going to be added, you might choose to use the scallop shape with the hanging hole at the top, not shown here.) Add glitter glue accents if desired (not shown here.)
Add some fake snow to the inside of the ornament. Add glue to the top edge. Just a warning, although these tiny foam ball type of fake snow are super cute they are also challenging to work with. They are static will stick to everything, including the shapes inside the ball and your work surface, the glue, and inside your dogs nose. You’ve been warned! :D
Carefully place the paper scene onto the top of the ornament, adjust to fit before the glue dries. Add glitter glue around the outside of the ornament to ensure that it adheres to the paper base, as well as adding a sparkly accent.
Tie ribbon or bakers twine to the ornament to hang. If the ornament hangs lopsided to the front, add a small washer or coin to the back. Glue a second scallop base to the back. This should help counterweight the ornament.
After the glue has dried, the snowy winter scene ornament is ready to decorate your tree! (Remember what I said about those foam balls, they stuck to the trees like magical snow balls one stuck to the top of the chalet and would not shake off. It amuses me!)
Happy creating and happy holidays to you and yours!
