Ho Ho Ho

While unpacking my Christmas items I was
delighted to find this piece that
I made last year.
It still makes me smile to look at it.

It was made from a page from a coin holder.
I attached paper to the back side,
painted, inked and glittered the front side.
These pages came with plastic inserts
to cover the coins so it made a perfect shadow box
style hanger.
I thought it would be perfect for a little Ho, Ho, Ho display with two openings for holiday accents.

I glued the letters in the openings then filled each with some micro beads then slid in the plastic covering to keep the beads in.

I had a small Santa hat and a stocking that was once an earring that I put in the last two openings.
I put the Santa hat on the plastic to add a little interest and dimension.

The hanger was a simple piece of ribbon ran through the holes that were already punched in the page.

I have a few more of these pages but they have 9 openings, 3 rows of 3 holes.
I might just have to put on my thinking cap and make a new sign since this one still makes me smile.

I have it hanging on the door of the cabinet I have in my hallway.

Hoping that you have a special holiday piece that
continues to make you smile year after year.

  1. That is so creative of you. I can usually see the potential in random things but I don't think I'd have ever thought of this.
