Happy Thanksgiving! I’m happy to be back this month sharing a quick and easy project to add to your Holiday decor, a Snowy Wreath Photo Shadowbox.
Around our house, we often start decorating for Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend (or at least I like to think that’s what we do). And, more often than not, the first things to go up are the wreaths on the front of the house. I’ve always loved the look of the traditional green and red wreaths against the grey and white of our house. And, once snow starts to accumulate on them, it’s almost picture-perfect:) I snapped some photos during a pretty snowfall a few years back, and I used one of my favorites to create this shadowbox to add to my holiday decorations this year.
To make a Snowy Wreath Photo Shadowbox of your own, you will need:
- Square Shadowbox Frame (I found this pretty scalloped one at Michael’s. It’s 10″x10″)
- Faux Snow (I used vase filler from Target, but I’m sure you can also find it at your local craft store.)
- Snowy Wreath Photo printed to fit your frame (Download Here)
I used a photo-editing program to crop my photo and add the word “merry” in white. I thought it added just the right pop to the photo. If you try this project with a photo of your own, consider adding a holiday word or message to your photo.
Print and trim the photo to fit your frame. After cleaning the glass, add some snow to the bottom of the box and reassemble the frame. I found that some errant pieces of snow stuck to the glass, but I think it adds to the charm.
Mix in a few Christmas accessories on a shelf, and you’ve got a lovely holiday vignette.
So make sure to add a shadowbox (or two) to your Black Friday shopping list. I want to try this project with a winter photo of our house next!
