Hi there! Katrina with a quick little Christmas DIY decor project that would be great for a girl's night together to celebrate the holidays!!
A 4x4 inch wooden pallet, a 3.5x3.5 inch piece of pattern paper, some embellishments, ribbon or twine and you are set!
I cut the pattern paper smaller than the pallet, because I wanted the pallet to show for that handmade, homey look. You can't really see it but I used some of the mini pompom trim at the bottom. You could also use the double dot crochet trim for this.
After I had gotten this far, I remembered that I wanted this to have a hanger! So I pulled out some of the Ken Oliver Jute Craft String and ran it behind my pattern paper. I tied a knot and then made the bow. This way, I was able to leave the ends of the bow a little longer and dangling!
Now, back to the pallet decorating! I attached a flower in the bottom center, along with some of the Vintage Paper Leaves in white. A white flower would look beautiful also, and I almost went that way! I also added a resin deer next to the flower. A bird would also be adorable and I wavered on that decision.
And then of course, I needed a saying and the Merry Christmas die did the trick! I used some foam that had double sided adhesive and die cut the Merry Christmas out of it. Then I removed the top adhesive protective sheet from the foam that I had die cut and used a gold foil transfer sheet to transfer the gold to the foam. Then I just peeled off the protective backing and adhered to my pattern paper. The foam gives the die cut some dimension and the foil gives it sparkle!
Now I just need the perfect place to hang it! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season! Thanks for stopping by.
