3D Winter Truck 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 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! Please note that in the final sample (not shown here but later in the instructions) I changed the base trees and the tree in the truck to a darker green for enhanced contrast between the trees. Do what you wish!
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 and snowy accents to the first layer.
Apply foam squares to the back of the first layer for dimension.
Adhere the first tree and snow layer to the base layer.
Repeat that process to glue trees and snow accents to the middle layer, and adhere to the first layer with adhesive foam squares.
Adhere tree to the truck layer, then the truck, tires, centers of wheels, running board, then finish with the wheel well fenders. Adhere this top layer to the middle layer with adhesive foam squares. You might consider adding a gem to the front of the truck as a headlight for a fun accent!
Adhere top truck layer to the middle layer with adhesive foam squares.
Adhere all layers to the base scallop layer. Add glitter glue accents if desired (not shown here.)
Add the scallop edge with the ornament hanging hole if you’re not going to add the clear ornament to the top. Attach baker’s twine or ribbon to hang on the tree.
Add some glittery fake snow to the inside of the ornament.
Add glue around the base layer (as shown.)
Carefully place the paper scene onto the top of the ornament, adjust to fit before the glue dries. Flip ornament right side up and 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 (not shown.) This should help counterweight the ornament.
After the glue has dried, the snowy winter scene ornament is ready to decorate your tree!
Happy creating and happy holidays to you and yours!
