They're great fun to collect and make! I love the look of these and like to swap out some of my other prints on the wall with these holiday versions. A quick easy way to decorate and they cater to my love of festive little surprises scattered throughout the house.
- Cover the backing to your frame with desired fabric. Be sure you have a firm, not flimsy backing as your foundation. (can create one out of a thin wood product or just be sure it's a very durable cardboard.) I use spray adhesive to adhere the fabric, so it's adhered securely and doesn't buckle after adding your 'gems'. A lot of the ones I find at flea markets are some sort of a velvet type fabric.
- Arrange found objects, old necklaces, earrings, and other novelty items into a holiday inspired design. Try a stocking, or ornament, or of course the classic tree.
- Adhere to your fabric covered backing using a good quality adhesive. Hot Glue works great and gives you quick grab. Weld Bond is another one that delivers success.
- Insert back into your frame and hang proudly. Create a large grouping for a jolly ole WOW!
