Christmas Home Decor Shadow Box

Posted by Jennifer Snyder

24 December, 2019 - ,

Jennifer Snyder here to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.  Today I am presenting a holiday home decor that has been made more extraordinary by using Maja Design paper and a few embellishments
I’m finishing the decorating and last minute Christmas gifts.  I picked up an inexpensive piece on clearance and flipped it around to use the other side.   Scroll down to see the before and after comparison. 
Here is my process from start to end.
I used the Maja Design, Holiday in the Alps 12×12 paper collection for the background of this piece.  The images and patterns in this paper collection are so peaceful and present a calm winter’s night.
These are the papers used:
Christmas Day
Winter Night
A little more about this piece and how it started.  Below is the image of the original home decor seasonal plaque.  Everything is on clearance this time of year and who doesn’t love a Christmas clearance section in the store!  The great thing about the plaque is that it is very deep and thick to make for a perfect shadow box when turned around to the backside.   These are things I think about when shopping.  It may look like Christmas today, but can this be painted and altered for use as a summer project?   If possible and inexpensive, then in the shopping cart it goes.
With a little glue, my gorgeous Maja design papers, and some other fabulous products,  it gets a total makeover.
Thank you for stopping here and Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and peaceful 2020.

  • What a great job, you did on this box here hun. I love, how you decorrated it, and I could also see many more different uses for a box like this, and also some really cool nautical ones for summerprojects, popped up in my brain, when I saw the original, so I hope, you grabbed more than this one of them? ha ha.
    But this one looks really awesome and sooo beautiful for this time of year, and I love, how you decorated it here. Stunning work as always.
    Today is THE DAY here in Scandinavia, so I just want to wish everyone inhere a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too. May the new year bring us all loads of fun and great times, besides from lots of love, happiness and good health, and may all of you have a wonderful Holiday with all your loved ones around. See you all in 2020.
