If you are feeling crafty this holiday season, these Christmas shadow boxes are easy to make! You can make them to hang on a wall or you can place them on tables for decor!
- Order a box of these shadow boxes from OrientalTrading.com. They measure about 6X6 inches, perfect for creating small wooden canvases
- Acrylic paint and foam brushes
- Bottlebrush Christmas trees
- Flannel fabric
- Spray adhesive
- Hot glue gun and glue
- For the paint, I just used an inexpensive white matte acrylic paint. I painted 1-2 coats on each of the boxes.
- To adhere the fabric to a box, use a spray adhesive. I use this one from Elmer’s.
- To adhere the trees to the box, simply use your hot glue gun.
Cutting the vinyl:
- I used a gold HTV (heat transfer vinyl) and red and green adhesive vinyl for this project.
- I cut the files out on the Cricut.
- The deer is in the Cricut access store.
- The “Be Merry” is a hybrid of files I had purchased and then manipulated in Cricut’s Design space.
- The HTV was ironed on with the Easy Press.
Here are my preferred places to get SVG files:
- Cricut Access Premium (nominal fee each month, access to thousands of files)
- DesignBundles.net (freebies available and files available for purchase)
