A sweet shadow box to remember the holidays

Step 1: Supplies Needed

Here is a list of supplies needed

Step 2: The Box

I used a wood box I had on hand, separated the two pieces and worked with just the lid. I painted the lid white, printed out the background art and glued that to the inside. I added some glue to the outside rim of the box and sprinkled on some white glitter.

Step 3: Make the Trees

I made the trees with green fabric, but green paper would work too.

I then added some white paint to the tops of the trees, brushed the
trees with glue and sprinkled on some green glitter. I love how they sparkle.

Step 4: Make the Wreath

For the wreath, I cut out a circle with the pinking shears, added green glitter, glued on a bow and adhered that to the top of the box.

Step 5: Finishing Your Shadowbox

I lightly hammered the nails into the sides of the lid and strung my gold thread across. I cut out my banner message and folded each one over the gold thread. A bit of glue holds them in place.

Add your cotton to the bottom, glue down your trees and your deer. I embellished him with a little gold leaf...it is after all, the holidays.

Hang it on a wall or place it on a shelf. Create one every year and make sure to date the back! I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt, this will be a keepsake.

Happy Holidays!
