7 Favorite Holiday DIYs & Silhouette Sale!

Christmas DIY crafts made with the Silhouette Cameo! Pizzazzerie.com

Calling all my crafters! It’s the Silhouette Black Friday sale (code = PIZZAZZERIE)! Every year, this is the biggest and best Silhouette sale! So I’m not much for fighting the crowds for Black Friday sales and definitely not on Thanksgiving day itself. Which is fab since this sale is online – woohoo! I’m excited to share 7 of my favorite holiday DIYs made with the Silhouette (above) and you’ll find the links to the tutorials below! The monogrammed Christmas ornament is mine from a couple of years ago. I’m monogram-obsessed which means my Silhouette comes in handy to monogram pretty much anything that doesn’t move in my house.

The specific Silhouette Black Friday sale details are below but first, these cute DIYs!

NOEL Holiday Sign: Such a cute decor idea! I love the lettering and think it’s so festive!
RUDOLPH Wreath: This wreath is just too fabulous! You must check it out!
CONE Christmas Tree: Wouldn’t several of these make a beautiful centerpiece idea?! Love!
CHRISTMAS Gift Tags: I love gift wrapping and cute packaging, and especially making my own, how cute!
GLITTER Garland: I could think of a million places to display this darling glitter garland!
PERSONALIZED Crate: So this isn’t a holiday DIY per se but I think it would be perfect as an alternative to a gift bag!
MONOGRAM Ornament: Here’s a direct link to my DIY for these glittered monogram ornaments!

The sale will run from Nov. 26, 2014 at 10pm MST through Dec. 8, 2014 at 11:59 MST
