DIY Christmas Shadow Box Home Decor



Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with a dramatic Christmas DIY home decor makeover made using elements from Authentique's Christmas Greetings collection and coordinating Authentique's Spectrum solid colors collection.   

Below are the Authentique products used on the Christmas Shadowbox:   Authentique Paper - Christmas Greetings Collection - 12 x 12 Paper PadAuthentique Paper - Christmas Greetings Collection - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper - Number Four, a mini ephemera card from Authentique Paper - Christmas Greetings Collection - 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  I also used two sheets from Authentique's Spectrum paper pad: Lady Bug and Crocodile Smile.

I am always on the hunt for clearance and discounted home decor pieces at big box stores and thrift stores that I can flip around and use as shadowboxes.  I'm interested in wooden frame type items that are deep enough to gussy as I want.    

 Today's featured piece was found at a big box national chain (on sale of course) and it has rich brown wood sides so I really don't need to do anything to the wood frame.  

I have some simple instructions to explaining the steps to this dramatic transformation.  



Step 1.  Flip frame around to decorate the inside.  Cut the Authentique Paper - Christmas Greetings Collection - 12 x 12 Paper Pad to size and glue.  

Step 2.  Add trim or decorative cording around the inside edges of the box to hide the imperfections.  My favorite trick to use to make the project appear finished and polished. 

Step 3.  Fill the box with embellishments.  Die cuts, tree, flowers.  I also cut a mini ephemera card from  the Christmas Greetings Collection - 6 x 6 Paper Pad to convey the Christmas message.  There are so many great ephemera cards to choose from in the collection. 

Step 4.  Finishing touches - include gold floral berries, pearls for the tree from Buttons Galore (Pearlz),  and 3D Holly Buttons and gift buttons from Buttons Galore.  

Step 5.  Final step was to add ribbon around the outside of the box.  


This image below shows some of the details and embellishments used on the shadow box.  
The dies used are included in one die set from Spellbinders (APG Die for November).  This set has the fabulous festive poinsettias and greens along with the ornate sleigh.  

Next I used a white decorative tree and glued in with very durable glue (Beacons 3 in 1).  I added the Buttons Galore (Pearlz) to the tree as a subtle decoration. 


The next two images shows the ribbon added around the outside of the box.  








Thank you for stopping here today and happy crafting.

  1. This type of mattress is actually useful for those who are entitled to stay in bed for longer periods of time. Such innovation helps prevent pressure sores, soothes arthritis for elder people as the mattress does soothes the body's need for warmth and many more. Also the open - cell structure of such mattress keep the air flowing freely within and out of the mattress thus preventing accumulation of odor and also prevents the existence of bed bugs or mites. safety manager
