RUBY RED CABLE CARS a pdf print at home project


I am so in love with this project and I hope you will be too. It has been a real labour of love and I know it is going to be decorating my home well beyond Christmas. I was inspired to make this garland by my love of quirky modes of transport, cable cars, trams, funicular railways!


There are five numbered cars in this kit, in a joyful festive rich red, perfect for a traditional or Scandi -cool colour scheme.  Each car has its own unique details and additional accessories. There are cheeky cats, little birds that have hopped on for a ride and a delivery of a christmas tree and presents. They can be hung as a garland or individually on your tree, used as part of the Sewyeah Advent Village (purchased separately) and they can even make lovely little gift boxs or name settings at the table. 


Making the cable cars is a calm and mindful process, with no real skills needed, just a little bit of neatness and patience. To make the 5 cars takes a couple of hours (less if you involve the whole family!) You need thin card, paper glue, scissors and a ruler. The download contains inspirational photographs and written instructions and diagrams.


You will need: for 5 cable cars

5 sheets of A4 (US LETTER) thin card - around 150-240  gsm

Scissors or craft knife, ruler and cutting mat

Scoring tool

paper glue or double sided tape

hanging thread


The templates come set up for  UK A4 to print at 100% ofr US letter print at 95%
