Last week I showed you the adorable Christmas Tree vinyl Shelley sent me and asked for suggestions on how I should use it.
Here’s how Shelley used it:
After thinking about it for a week, I finally decided that I really did like it framed.
I went to my stash and found an empty 8×10 frame.
But it wasn’t really that cute or very Christmas-y, so I decided to give it a makeover!
I gave it a good coat of spray paint primer and then finished it off with Krylon silver spray paint.
I still wanted a little more oomph though. What do you think of when you think of Christmas, the holidays, and decorating?
If you’re like me, you think
I headed to Michael’s and picked up some of the Martha Stewart glitter that *everyone* in blogland has been talking about.
This jar was about $5, but it’s going to last me quite awhile.
On a side note, I had a hard time finding the Martha Stewart glitter until I stumbled upon the Martha Stewart ISLE. Yes, she has an entire isle at Michael’s. And I was in heaven.
I took the ol’ Mod Podge…
…and painted it on in small sections.
Then I worked around the frame alternating between the glue and glitter.
I did the glittering on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper so that I could collect all the leftover glitter and pour it back into the jar when I was done.
After the frame was dry I stuck the vinyl to the glass.
I needed to choose what type of background the frame would have. While I was at Michael’s I picked up a few cute Christmas papers that might work behind the tree in the frame.
Honestly, I feel like all of them are too distracting, so in the end I chose white paper.
I love how it turned out. I love, love, LOVE the glitter frame!
It constantly sparkles as you stare at it. This glitter really was a great investment.
Thanks Shelley from Wonderfully Wordy for the vinyl. I adore it.
Happy Holidays, my friends!
