diy: framed wild garland art

Happy New Year! For those of you who have decided to log on today (or this week), I wanted to share a cute and simple way to get creative with your leftover Christmas decorations!

Supplies:

Faux Christmas wreath OR garland/tinsel
Extra deep photo frame
Scissors
White glue
Glitter
Sheet of paper
Pencil

Steps:

1. Using a pencil, write a few words of your choice on a sheet of paper. As these words will ultimately become the template for the frame, play around with them until they are neat and centred and are able to fit onto the frame’s plate of glass.

2. Place the glass over the paper. Take the white glue and slowly begin to trace what is written on the page. Once the tracing is complete, sprinkle glitter onto the white glue. Ensure that the words are sufficiently covered with glitter.

3. Let that dry for approximately 12 hours, or until the glue is hardened.

4. Take the glass and wipe away the excess glitter. Put it back in the frame. Then fill the extra deep photo frame with either cut up pieces of Christmas wreath, or garland. Whatever you prefer!

5. Finish by adding the backing board, and hanging up on a wall. Or, you can display it on a shelf. Go wild! Either way, you can’t lose.

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas! We should all feel blessed and hopeful going into this new year. Feel free to share your resolutions and plans for 2019 below!
