  • 1 sheet white adhesive vinyl
  • 1 sheet silver glitter adhesive vinyl
  • 1 wooden crate
  • 1 hot chocolate container
  • 1 mug
  • candy canes
  • marshmallow drink stirrers
  • holiday ribbon


  • Begin by importing the Have a Cup of Cheer SVG file into the Silhouette studio. The file has an offset design you can use to layer two types of vinyl, or you can decide to skip the offset and use the single layer by itself. I think this would also look great with only white lettering or the silver glitter adhesive vinyl. Use the vinyl colors that match your crate best.
  • Cut the adhesive vinyl for each design layer then remove the excess. Use transfer tape to adhere to the white lettering on top of the silver glitter offset lettering.
  • Line up the vinyl layers to the front of the wooden crate and firmly press onto the surface. Smooth any air bubbles out before peeling the transfer tape off.
  • Fill the neighbor gift crate with hot chocolate, a holiday mug, marshmallow sticks, and candy canes. Add paper shreds around the gifts and underneath to add some height.
  • Finish with a wire ribbon bow wrapped around the crate and tied on top of the hot chocolate and mug. Optional: decorate with a poinsettia flower and holly leaves.
