DIY Patriotic Decor with the Foil Quill

Hey there We R friends, it’s Aly here again! Happy Wednesday, and welcome to the blog. Tomorrow is Independence Day for us here in the U.S., and I’ve got a festive patriotic DIY decor idea to share with you featuring the Foil Quill.

The focal point of my patriotic decor is this vinyl sign that I made with the Foil Quill and the Crate Paper Magnet Studio 10×14 frame.

The design file comes from the We R Holiday USB Drive, which has 200 SVG files perfect for cutting or foiling for any holiday during the year.

I started by opening the design in my software and resizing it to fit my frame. Then I created a simple circle pattern to foil over the vinyl before cutting it out. Watch the video below to see how I was able to foil and cut this project with my Silhouette Cameo 3.

Once I completed my foiled vinyl design and added it to my frame, I wanted to create a few more DIY decor items to accompany it. First, I used the Tassel Loom to make what I call a Waterfall Tassel Garland. I simply made my 6 inch tassels, and then used a yarn needle to string them all together and hang them.

Next, I made a couple of mini garlands with some gold glitter paper and a gold mylar sheet. I used my circle and star Mini Clear Cut Punches (1 inch) to make them.

I love using them to punch out lots of shapes from my paper scraps because I can move them anywhere on my paper to punch, which means I can use EVERY INCH of my paper scraps. So satisfying, right?!?

I threw in a flag and a plant decorated with blue striped washi tape to complete my patriotic vignette, and I love how it turned out!
