Framing Christmas Decorations and CardsPosted by in Picture Frames
Christmastime is actual ideal time for using wood picture frames for home decor. Aside from using picture frames to hang the family portrait (however awkward as it may be), frames are useful for small homemade decorations and for saving really memorable and endearing cards. We discussed some cute gifts you can make with wooden frames in a previous post, but have we discussed things you can frame and place around the home as additional decor?
You can buy small 4×6 frames to frame your favorite cards or old cards you saved from previous years that really mean something to you. They make for easy windowsill and mantle decorations.
As a kid one of the first big projects you learn in grade school classes is how to make a diorama. Well, if you re-invent that idea and use higher grade materials, you can make a perfect holiday scene. Using a cardboard box, wax paper, white felt, cut pine tree branches, and figurines you can make a winter wonderland setting. Cut the wax paper in a round shape. Trace it on the felt, then cut out the shape from the felt. Take the box and set it on its side. Glue the wax paper down. Then take the outline of the felt you cut and place it around that wax paper. Glue it down too. Scatter the pine tree branches standing up around the box and glue them in. Take figurines of skaters, sleds, and other winter things and place them around. Once your scene is complete then frame it.
These are only a few options. Keep your eye out for more ideas in the future.
