Hello friends! Leigh here, to share my Farmhouse Frame Holiday Decor. I used the American Crafts and DCWV 11×15 Chicken Wire Farmhouse Frame as the base of my project. Have you made a holiday project with non-themed products yet? I was inspired to see how cutting everyday supplies into Holiday shapes really transformed the project. Nothing on my frame is specifically Christmas themed, but it looks it when you are finished!
The New Day collection from Dear Lizzy is filled with happy colors for a non-traditional Holiday color scheme. I chose the teal, aqua, pink, and yellow papers to create the poinsettias. I created the white raffia tassel with AC Gift ribbon to add a third tassel to coordinate with the cute tassels in the New Day collection.
Trace or cut five poinsettias from your favorite colors and assemble them as shown. I had a poinsettia kit (also by DCWV) with the metallic gold leaves and flower centers, so I used those with the Dear Lizzy papers. I traced around the poinsettias in the kit with a pencil onto the Dear Lizzy papers. I love a metallic gold shine with Holiday decor.
I created these tags from the die cuts and the Dear Lizzy Paper Clips. The layers were piled up to create lots of dimension on the project, because it doesn’t have to fit it a page protector. You can add each layer with foam dots for even more dimension. Add some pom-pom trim to coordinate with the white frame.
Add all your pieces and photo to the frame with the included clothespins, and I added more clothespins from the Goldenrod Collection. I added more die cuts and also American Crafts Thickers numbers to list the kids ages on the frame. I like the fact that the pins make it easy to change out this decor if your home decor colors change.
Up close, you can see that I added the teal paper to the frame back because that way it pops more against my white marble fireplace, but you could leave the back paper off if you prefer to see through the frame. This project can easily be modified to fit your decor and home style, and to create a memory-keeping treasure for your family. This would also be a great gift for grandparents!
Thank you for visiting today, Leigh
