Cut out your search for hand-made holiday decorations

Posted: Thursday, December 12, 2002

(NAPSI)-The holiday season is jam-packed with lights, gifts and especially decorations. Now there's a do-it-yourself option that allows you to create decorations that are flexible, customizable and inexpensive. All you need is a computer, a jigsaw and a little creativity.

A leading manufacturer of power tools is providing cutout templates on its Web site. The templates are easy to print out at home, tape together and trace onto plywood. With just a few cuts using a jigsaw, the pattern is shaped into a personal home decoration.

"With Skil's new downloadable cutout patterns, do-it-yourselfers can create holiday decorations with their own hands," said Marcus Burzynski, Skil jigsaw product manager. "Skil.com has a number of pattern cutout options that make holiday decorating a fun, easy, and affordable project for the entire family."

Cutout pattern crafts are simple projects that add a personal touch to home decorating efforts. Skil simplifies the process for do-it-yourselfers of every skill level with four easy steps:

Step 1: Go to www.skil.com and print out your favorite pattern cutout

Step 2: Tape together and fasten to a sheet of plywood

Step 3: Use a Skil jigsaw to trace pattern and cut the shape

Step 4: Sand, paint and put on display.

These holiday cutout patterns are available in three sizes: small for tabletop decorations, medium to hang as wall decorations and large for lawn ornaments. Small ornament patterns will also be available and are a fantastic, inexpensive gift option.

More than 30 downloadable pattern cutouts are available now at www.skil.com including a gingerbread man, snowman and candy canes. However, the cutout decorations won't end with the holiday season. Seasonal pattern decorations and do-it-yourself crafts will be available throughout the entire year including pumpkins, sunflowers, birdhouses and picture frames.
