This week's BFF Open House link party is still going on here and will be up through Sunday.
I thought I'd post an idea I recently shared over at The Scrap Shoppe where Michele has had a wonderful Handmade Holiday series going. This week is recipes so you should definitely check it out! It wraps up tomorrow but there have been some wonderful ideas shared.
On one of my trips I found a pack of glittered reindeer ornaments. Five for $1! Had to have.Right next to them was a pack of red tissue paper “hot stamped” with silver. Also a must have!
I took one sheet of the tissue paper and traced around the frame and cut out. Covered my frame with Ranger’s Glue N Seal and then put my tissue paper on. You could also use Mod Podge. I chose not to seal the top since I wasn’t sure if it would dull the shine of the silver foil.
Waste not want not, so I covered the cardboard that came with the frame with some scrapbook paper:
Took one reindeer from my package of ornaments, cut off the string used to hang and then hot glued it to my finished frame, offset so the feet and antlers are glued to the frame vs onto the paper. I liked the dimension this gave.
My total cost for the supplies for this project was about $3!
- $1 frame
- $1 Tissue Paper ( over 4 sheets left over so lots more crafting!)
- $1 Ornaments ( really $.20 for this project since I used one of five)
If you're looking for a last minute decor idea or gift, this is a fast an easy way to whip something up.
