DIY Fallidays Creations


As you gear up for peak season, ensuring you're well-stocked and ready to craft is just the beginning of the journey. Now, it's time to put your creative spirit to work. In the following tutorials, we'll guide you through the process of crafting fall and holiday-themed decorations using our high-quality acrylic sheets and mirrored acrylic.


Fallidays Table Decor


Creating fall table decor with acrylic sheets, name plates, and leaf cutouts is a fantastic way to add a touch of elegance to your holiday gatherings. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through the process step by step.


Materials:

- Acrylic sheets in fall colors

- Laser cutter


Step 1: Design Your Name Plates and Leaf Cutouts

Start by creating your plate tag.

Step 2: Prepare Your Acrylic Sheets

Select acrylic sheets in fall colors that complement your table decor theme. Apply paper masking. Colors used in the above photo: Frosted Sunflower, Topaz luxe glitter, Fire Coral fine glitter, Frosted Black, Sunflower Pre-dyed Plywood.

Step 3: Laser Cutting

Place your acrylic sheet in your laser. Apply settings (e.g., power, speed, and focus) for cutting acrylic sheets. Double-check your designs' placement on the acrylic sheet to ensure they fit and align properly.

Step 4: Cutting Your Designs

Step 5: Remove Masking

Once your machine has cooled down, carefully remove your material. Peel off the masking from both sides of the acrylic pieces. This is a satisfying step as you'll see your designs come to life.

OPTIONAL Step: Layered Designs

Apply 3M double-sided tape to one layer PRIOR to cutting. If you do not have 3M but have All-Craft Multi Glue, this step will be after cutting. Carefully stick the name plates to the front of your acrylic sheets. Ensure they are centered and aligned correctly. If using glue, only a small amount is required. Once y6our have placed a few drops of glue on the back of the top layer, ensure it is lined up properly and apply pressure for approx. 15-30 seconds.


Now that your fall table decor is ready, arrange them on your table as elegant place settings or a warm tablescape.


3D Christmas Trees


Creating 3D Christmas trees and holiday scenes with acrylic sheets is a wonderful way to infuse your home with holiday cheer.


Materials:

- Acrylic sheets in color(s) of your choice

- A laser cutter

- Small LED tea lights (optional for scene illumination).


Step 1: Design Your Trees and Holiday Scene

Start by creating or purchasing designs for your Christmas trees or snowflakes

Step 2: Prepare Your Acrylic Sheets

Choose the color(s) of your choice. Apply paper masking to both sides. As shown in the picture above, Gold shimmer was used.

Step 3: Laser Cutting

Place the acrylic sheet on the laser bed. Load your design into your laser cutter software. Adjust settings based on material used.

Step 4: Assembling the Trees and Scene

Once your acrylic pieces are cut, carefully remove the masking from both sides to reveal the clean surfaces. Assemble the trees by sliding the corresponding halves together. Create multiple trees of varying sizes. Arrange your holiday scene elements, like snowflakes, reindeer, or stars, to create a festive tableau.

OPTIONAL: Add Illumination

For an extra magical touch, you can place small LED tea lights beneath your acrylic scene elements. The warm glow will bring your holiday scene to life.


Arrange your mini 3D Christmas trees and holiday scene on a tabletop, mantel, or a tiered tray. These acrylic creations will add a touch of enchantment to your festive decor.



Holiday Ornament


Creating an ornament with mirrored acrylic is a creative and eye-catching holiday decoration.


Materials:

- Laser cutter

- Decorative ribbon


Step 1: Design and Cut Your Ornaments

Start by designing your ornaments. These can include classic holiday shapes or layererd designs.

Step 2: Prepare Your Acrylic Sheets

Choose various colored acrylic sheets for making the ornaments. Apply paper masking if necessary. Materials used in the project above: Milky White, Clear & Gold Mirror

Step 3: Laser Cutting

Place the acrylic on the laser cutter bed. Load the designs into the laser software. Adjust settings as per materials being used and initiate the cutting process.

Step 4: Assemble the Ornaments

Once ornaments are cut and masking removed, it is time to assemble the layered ornaments. Using the All-Craft Multi Glue, apply a small amount to the backside of the middle layer. Press firmly for 15-30 seconds onto the front side of the back layer. Once dried, apply a small amount to the backside of the front layer. Press firmly for 15-30 seconds.

Step 5: Finishing Accessories

Now that your layers are attached and glue has dried, it is time to add in the decorative ribbon.


Hang your mirrored acrylic ornament decoration on a wall, in a window, or use it on your Christmas tree.
