Christmas Shadow Box Tutorial

Standard

This is a great time of year to create seasonal decor and gifts…and if you can recycle an item from your home and re-create it for a new life…all the better. That’s what I did here. I repurposed a shadow box frame that used to live in my kiddos nautical themed bathroom. I took all the goodies out..(saving them for another project lol) and gave it a quick coat of spray paint. I’ll show you the finished frame first…then I’ll show you how I decked it up for the holidays!

IMG_2646Isn’t it shabby-tastic!!!! I quite love how it turned out : )

IMG_2640After the painting…I added a sheet of neutral background paper.

IMG_2641Then I added a real authentic vintage sheet music page…has a beautiful Christmas theme.

IMG_2642Next was a strip at the top and bottom of a sweet striped and flocked paper.

IMG_2643This pretty glittery ornament was a fabulous find. It fit perfectly and has my favorite holiday sentiment.

IMG_2644I added many spacers to the back of this printed vintage image from Graphic’s Fairy so I would have enough room for the ornament….plus I like the depth it adds. I Stickled this image to accent the details.IMG_2645Two purchased poinsettias that I trimmed a fair bit to get them to fit nicely and not obscure to much of the image.

Last but not least two beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon Trims. Red Plaid and Snowflakes on Red Satin.Topped off with a glittery pine cone.

Hopefully this will encourage you to look around and see what you can reuse to make a super special addition to your holiday decor…or a gift for friends and family.

I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : )  G
