It happens in towns all across America: neighbors hang the same old decorations every time the holiday season rolls around. You might be guilty of it, too. We hear you! The deals you can get on bulk Christmas lighting and blowup Santa displays are hard to pass up—especially in the rush to decorate your house, plan for guests and finish all your holiday shopping.
But whether there’s still time to commission customized decorations or the holidays are nearing their end, now is the time to get a jumpstart on designing some updated, completely unique decorations. And water jet cutting in San Francisco, CA can help you do just that! Your designs can literally be cut out of a wide range of materials that will have your neighbors in awe. Here are a few ideas to trigger your creative side.
Steel Christmas trees
Imagine looking at your front yard and seeing an variety of steel Christmas trees. Pretty cool, right? Rather than a bunch of traditional plastic reindeer or inflatable snowmen, water jet cut trees make for a classy upgrade to typical holiday decorations. For a truly unique look, ask a professional to cut the trees so that they fit together to form one three-dimensional tree, rather than just a flat standing one. These clever fixtures could be decorated with lights, magnets and any number of other cheery accents.
A life-sized sleigh
Imagine the look on your kids’ faces when you set up a real-life Santa’s sleigh in your yard made of 3/4” plywood cut to precision measurements. With the right design and professional water jet cutting services in San Francisco, CA from Mach 1 Waterjet, Inc., you’ll have a sleigh decoration your friends and family could assemble and enjoy, then disassemble when the holidays are all over.
The beauty of water jet cutting is that there are very few limits to what materials can be cut. Take, for example, the natural stones you had hoped to turn into name ornaments for your family and friends. Sand blasting might work for etching their names into the stones, but water jet cutting allows you to go all the way through. Just think about how your children will react when they see their names carved into the center of a solid stone. They’ll love it!
Holiday-inspired weather vane
A holiday-inspired weather vane is not only unique—it is also a practical accessory for any home during the stormy winter months. Imagine replacing your run-of-the-mill weather vane with one cut specifically to match your home’s holiday theme. Rather than a rooster, try a snowman or Santa’s sleigh in flight. It could be cut out of a number of durable metals and would instantly become a family favorite.
Holiday decor is just one of many projects that can be completed using water jet cutting tools. If you are interested in learning more about water jet cutting in San Francisco, CA for your next custom project, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at Mach 1 Waterjet, Inc.
