Hello all of you lovely I Heart Nap time readers! I am Jen, one of the six ‘chicks’ from The Crafting Chicks. We are six friends who love to create. We love being moms and together we have 21 1/2 little ones! Sometimes, we need a little ‘craft therapy’. :) We really enjoy sharing all of our ideas with each other and with all of you!
I am so excited to be posting over here on this fabulous blog today! I am so happy I can share some Christmas decor with you.
I LOVE Christmas. The sights, the smells, the sounds, and all of the yummy treats! One of my very favorite things about Christmas time are Christmas songs. I have a few favorites. I love the feeling I get when I hear these songs being sung. One of my very favorites is ‘Silent Night’. Such sweet words. I decided that I was going to frame the words and display them in my living room by my Christmas tree this year.
For this project, you will need:
An 8×10 frame
Paint in whatever color you like
Glitter
The words to your favorite Christmas song typed up
*I have included a free download for the Silent Night words that I digi-scrapped at the bottom of this post. :)
First I took the back off and the glass out of my frame and painted it. I used a shimmery silver paint since my Christmas colors in my living room are silver and green.
While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some sparkley white glitter all over my frame. I shook off the excess and let it dry.
After it was dry, I put in the words to my song and I was finished. I used the December kits by Crystal Wilkerson. Us girls at The Crafting Chicks love Crystal and her awesome digi-kits. :)
I really like how it turned out. I love that my children see these sweet words and can stop and remember what Christmas is really all about. :)
Here is the free download so you can make your own. Just right click on the image and save.
I hope everyone has a very special holiday season!
Thank you Jen and all you lovely crafting chicks for kicking off the Crazy Christmas Crafters event! I absolutely LOVE this project. This is a simple and inexpensive, yet B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L craft project that anyone can make! It turned out so cute!
