Christmas Solutions Home Decor!


6x6 white shadow fame ( Dollar store)

Glimmer Mist "Tattered Leather"

scrap towel

Cuttlebug folder ()

Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Tim Holtz "Retro Grunge" paper stack

Time Holtz Mini Mask "regal"

White gel pen

Brown cross grain ribbon

Brown braiding cord

Adhesive dots

Christmas Solutions cartridge

Scrap piece of red, white and tan paper

For this altered project I took white shadow box frame that I found at the Family Dollar and took it apart. I sprayed a scrap towel with the glimmer mist and then rubbed it into the White frame to give it a distressed look.

I also attached a brown ribbon from the back of the frame so that it could be hung. The inside of this particular frame had a 5x5 background with a "tile" that measure 3x3. I trimmed down patterned paper to fit the size of the background, ran it through my cuttle bug and then took my ink pad and rubbed the paper so that the embossed images would stand out.

On the "tile" I again cut paper to size and place the mini mask down and used a finger dabber to lightly apply ink, once the mask was lifted a negative was left on my paper. Using the white gel pen I added faux stitching around the tile.

I found these felt buttons at Walmart and just tied and knotted the brown braiding cord thought the button. I used dots to adhere them.

The Santa was cut at 2 inches and inked before I popped him on. I really love altering home decor projects they are so easy so make them if your style or the style of whoever your giving it to.

One can go for glass, metal, wood, or ceramic items for the decoration. The shops are ready with all sorts of decorative items but people also love to try out their hands in making them at homes. It is around this time the family gets the chance to meet their closed ones and they start enjoying the Christmas spirit as they get involved with the decorations.
