Merry Wall Hanging Tutorial

Hello friends,
Today I want to share a little merry wall hanging tutorial with you.

First start by printing this sweet image and cutting out the girl.

As my background I used this Merry bingo card. These bingo cards are by Jenni Bowlin and they come in large cards or packs of small cards. The Merry card I am using is 5 x 7.

I then took this pink wavy patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly paper line and cut a section of it out to go across the card.

I then took a sheet of vintage song sheet music and turned it to the back and hand drew several holly leaves.

I cut them out in both the song sheet and pink cardstock.

I also took a regular size hole punch and punched a sheet of red cardstock to make 3 circles that will be my holly berries.

I then took a red ink pad and ran it across the edges of my leaves.

I then cut a sheet of red patterned paper 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 as my background. I then glued the bingo card to that and then glued my piece of pink paper to the middle.

I then glued the 3 holly leaves to the bottom corner. Slightly overlapping each one.

I then added the 3 holly berries.

I cut a Christmas tree from green patterned paper but you could also find a picture of a tree to print on the internet if you'd rather.

I glued them in the middle of the bingo card. Laying the girls hand on the tree and the other looking like she is hanging an ornament that is an adhesive jewel.

I then punched holes in the top corners.

I pulled through ribbon and knotted on both sides.

And it's done! I hope you enjoyed this super easy project!

Please come back tomorrow for another super easy last minute tutorial!
