Hello, Everyone! Today I am thrilled to share my Vintage Noel Table Topper with you.
Recently, I joined the Thermoweb design team and I’ve had the opportunity to play with some products which are brand new to me- I think my absolute favorite is the Decofoil!! It comes in tons of colors- and I just heard that they are adding even more colors for next year… I can’t wait to see them. If you walk around Target or browse around Pinterest for a while, you will see metallics everywhere. You can use Decofoil to add metallic elegance and shimmer to all kinds of fabric and paper projects.
Note- if you decide to order DecoFoil online, please use this link. This is an affiliate link, which means that I get a small percentage of the sales- that will help to defray some of my costs for making the sample. Thanks!!
When I saw the pretty gold and silver foil, I immediately thought of Christmas. I designed a motif with the word “Noel” and some simple holly leaves and berries. I started going through my fabric stash, and I was drawn to some traditional, muted red and green fabrics. Then I found a “greige” (that’s not quite gray, not quite beige/tan) floral fabric which I thought would be perfect for a border to pull it together. When I put everything together, it had a vintage feel to it… and Voila! My Vintage Noel Table Topper/Mini Quilt was created.
My long-arm quilter, Danny, did a phenomenal job in the center with some metallic thread to complement the metallic “Noel” and holly leaves. You can also stitch over the Decofoil- see how she added the veins and details to the metallic leaves:
You can find Decofoil in craft stores, or order it online here.

I’ve also posted a YouTube video showing how I used the DecoFoil for this project- if you’ve never used the product before, I think you will like watching this step-by-step how-to video to see how easy and fun it is!
I hope you will try the Decofoil– it really is soooooo much fun! I have plans to add metallic shimmer to lots of stuff!!
