This is one of those projects that we initially developed, but then had to rethink it once it came together. Because we have to remember that things are ever-evolving! Our graphic designer Lindsay originally created this beautiful Let it Snow graphic as a fun window cling for the holidays and winter season. We stuck it onto our window in the studio, and although it did look pretty and festive, it was almost impossible to photograph. Which was no good for sharing the project! So we decided to redirect the focus a bit and repurpose the graphic as a let it snow serving tray. We then used the cute snowflakes and icicle illustrations as a way to dress up your drinking glasses for Christmas. And a new project was born!
We cut this design with our Cricut cutting machine, and you can do the same thing using the SVG file below. If you are cutting by hand, download the PDF version. We cut ours onto white Cricut brand vinyl, or you can find printable vinyl to use with the PDF version (links in Shop this Project). This project is as simple as cutting out the design and sticking it onto your surface to create your let it snow serving tray. To decorate our water glasses, we randomly placed the icicle and snowflake designs on our set. We bought both the serving tray and the glasses from West Elm, and you can find links below.
Use your tray for winter dinner parties, or create a cute home decor display with votives and botanicals as a pretty coffee table centerpiece! You can easily use this design to make other DIY goodies, like an iron-on for an apron or canvas tote bag.
