Love Rae Dunn coffee cups and pottery?🙋

If you’re a fan of these popular farmhouse looking brand of white mugs, bowls, and canisters with tall, skinny writing on the front, then how about making some DIY Christmas ornaments for your tree?! 🎄

To get this trendy Rae Dunn look onto ornaments, simply cut and apply black vinyl to solid white ornaments. It’s such a fun project and you’ll love the end result! Change up the wording to any holiday words desired. Santa’s reindeer names would be really fun too!

To make it easy, I’ve linked the exact ornaments, ribbon, and supplies I used. 🙂 

DIY Rae Dunn Inspired Ornaments

Supplies Needed:
Directions:

1.) Download the free font from dafont.com called “The Skinny”. Open Cricut Design Space and type out Christmas related words using ‘The Skinny” font. Size words to about 1.5 inches.


2.) Cut words using black vinyl and weed out the excess vinyl. Cut decals into individual words.


3.) Try Glad Press and Seal to transfer vinyl to ornament. It’s really thin and stretchy, which made it easy to apply vinyl to a round ornament without bubbling. (I first tried using transfer tape and it was too thick and didn’t bend with the ball shaped ornament very well.)


4.) To transfer, place sticky part of Press and Seal over vinyl word. Use a rubbing tool or credit card over the word. Then lift the press and seal off the paper and now your word will be lifted off paper backing. Place word onto center of ornament. Always press middle of word first, then work outwards. Finally, lift the Press and Seal off. (After the first few, you’ll be an expert!)


6.) Add Christmas ribbon if desired.


Don’t have a vinyl cutting machine?

As an alternative, maybe consider using a thin sharpie paint pen and hand draw lettering!


I’m so obsessed with these Christmas ornaments!🎄

They are so fun to make and look great on my tree. I think this would be such a fun craft night party idea to do with friends! I also think a set of these ornaments would make a beautiful DIY gift idea as well!

Also worth mentioning, this idea isn’t limited to Christmas ornaments! You can cut lettering like this to embellish plain white pitchers, mugs, canisters, pottery, etc. in order to get a similar Rae Dunn look on items you may already have!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
