Holiday Shadow Box

Happy Monday!

Today I was inspired by these really neat lit shadowboxes that came in at Ben Franklin. They come with battery operated lights inside, and the front pulls away and is attached with magnets! The front is also made of a thick piece of clear acetate instead of glass, so you don't have to worry about it breaking! 

one wooden shadowbox
2 AA batteries
pack of 2 miniature trees
fluffy snow
peppermint baker's twine
assorted scenes on cardstock papers 
hot glue gun / hot glue
Mod Podge 
pop-up dots

First cut your cardstock paper background to the size of the interior of the box. Glue using your brush and Mod Podge.

Pop those batteries in, and glue down those trees and miniature house. Sprinkle some powdered snow around the house and at the base of the trees.

 For the final touch, wrap some baker's twine around the bottom, and cut out a holiday saying from your holiday cardstock. Adhere paper on the outside with a few pop-up dots for dimension so it pops off the background!

Ta Da!
So easy and so so cute!
Happy Holiday Crafting!

  1. Wow! I like this decoration. I will definitely look for it in Ben Franklin Crafts.

  2. Beautiful house! What about the choice of the interior design for this samll house and cards with this? You can use to assist you to plan the home. And, further, the best view of it. Why not?
