Christmas Shadow Box
- Unfinished Wood Shadow Box
- 12×12 Frame
- Red Adhesive Vinyl
- Christmas Scrapbook Paper
- Jingle Bells
- Red Spray Paint
- Tacky Glue
First, paint the shadow box. Since it is unfinished, it will take a couple coats (you might want to use a primer coat, but mine did just fine without it).
Apply a thin line of glue along the inside of the frame and then place the glass back inside. Let it dry over a couple hours.
I found a great “Jingle All The Way” shape in the Silhouette store and cut it out of the red vinyl. Using contact paper, transfer it to the glass of the frame.
Since both the shadow box and the scrapbook paper are 12×12, no cutting is required! Simply pick out the background you want and glue it in.
Now for the bells, I glued three of them to the top of the frame. Use tape on the string to hold it in place while the glue dries. Place the other bells The other bells I left at the bottom to roll around.
The final step is to attach the 12×12 frame to the shadow box. Put a thin line of glue along the edge of the shadow box and then position the frame onto the glue. Let it dry for a couple hours and then it is ready to decorate!
Consumer Crafts is awesome in another way – they are currently having a Giveaway for a Cricut so that you could cut vinyl this easy as well!
This is officially my first piece of Christmas decor out for the year and I love how it looks on the mantle! What would you put in your box?
