The personal touch this Christmas

It may be six weeks away but before we know it the festive season will soon be upon us. What better time to start making personal preparations to fill your own home, as well as those of friends and family, with unique decorations, edible gifts and handmade cards that will make a lasting impression, personal gift and create a fun, inspirational and festive atmosphere for adults and children?
Whether you want to craft your own Christmas cards, shape your own tree decorations or dust some sweet treats you’re planning on baking during festivities, we at Stencil Warehouse have some unique, innovative and playful stencil designs guaranteed to bring warmth and merry feelings to ‘one and all’ during the Christmas period.
Christmas cards
Planning out your Christmas card list is probably useful to do in advance of December’s arrival, as not only will there be a rush to buy cards but you will also want to ensure that you don’t forget anyone.
Making your own Christmas cards can act as a small gift to friends and family members bringing that extra special touch, particularly if you choose to make them with children who are always likely to put their own spin on card-making for each recipient.
Our Christmas card stencils are available in various sizes to suit the size of card you opt for, and in a choice of designs complete with several font styles, greetings and symbolic Christmas icons allowing you to stencil your card design with glitter or paints depending on who you are giving your card to, making a keepsake your recipients will treasure.
Decorations for your home and Christmas tree
Our Christmas stencils can be used with spray snow for beautifully festive decorations. Create an eye-catching display of snowmen, elves, trees and snowflakes on your windows and mirrors, and bring a festive winter wonderland into your home this Christmas.
Stencilled Christmas table decorations can also be wonderfully effective bringing a cheery and very personal touch to your place-mats and napkins, or perhaps a stunning table centrepiece.
If you are looking to adorn your Christmas tree with decorations with a difference get the kids together with some card, crayons, glitter and crafting kits and use our ranges of Christmas stencils to create unique decorations you can hang with cotton or rope from your trees branches.
Such a simple idea is even effective as a present for a family member’s tree, perhaps even to map out your son or daughter’s progress through each Christmas, creating a memorable keepsake that is quick, simple and cost effective to produce while having fun along the way.
Christmas baking
Are you an enthusiastic baker when it comes round to the festive season? Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, chocolate logs, Christmas cupcakes and fig rolls are all delicious treats that come to mind when indulging during the festive period.
If you’re planning on entertaining friends and family during the month of December then it is likely baking will be an activity you will be partaking in. Our cake dusting or sprinkling stencils can add that finishing festive touch with varied designs featuring lettering , pictures and messages which are all food safe and easily cleaned. This is a great way of getting the kids involved in preparations for Christmas whilst making your home-made treats look seasonally scrumptious!
The stencils even double as a novelty dusting for hot chocolates or Hot Toddies to evoke that Merry Christmas feeling.
