Portuguese Christmas Ornaments

This past weekend the Portuguese School that my kids attend celebrated their Annual Christmas Concert. This year they also had their very first silent auction. I thought I could contribute by donating some of my Portuguese themed floating ornaments.

Here are a few of my favorites!

Eu te Amo means I love you in Portuguese!

I LOVE this one... it has to be my favorite, probably because it is SO true! Good thing I kept this one for myself because I just noticed that some of the letters went on a little crooked, oops!

 This one was inspired by my daughter, who sometimes thinks she's a princess, lol!
Love it!

To watch a how to video, I found one similar to the process I did mine for those of you that are interested in how to make your own. They are actually easier than you think!

There is still plenty of time to make a few before Christmas!!! All you need is vinyl, transparency sheets, transfer tape and glass or plastic ornaments and of course a Silhouette Machine!

For those of you interested here are the Silhouette Studio Files FREE for Download!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)


  1. These ornaments are lovely! I had seen a tutorial on how to make them a year or 2 ago, but do you think I have made them yet?? No! LOL!

    1. Thanks Beth! I had seen this a long time ago too, but I finally made some! You should definitely try them out too, super easy!

  2. Olá Ilda! Belas inspirações! O meu favorito é mesmo o segundo :)
    Desejo que tenha junto da família um Santo Natal! Que não falte o Amor, a Saúde e o bolo rei claro!
