Today I am sharing a quick and easy tutorial for a Christmas wall hanging
using this cute Santa card.
Here is a look at the finished wall hanging.
Start with a sheet of chipboard cut to measure 7 x 8 1/2 .
Cover it with scrapbook paper. I used paper from the Very Merry line by October Afternoon.
I then inked around the edges with Vintage photo Distress ink and a a blending tool to give the edges a soft, vintage look.
I then took a sheet of paper from the Modern Homemaker line by October Afternoon and cut the top and bottom edges using Tim Holtz edger die. I then inked the edges with Barn Door Distress Ink.
I glued that piece to the center of the hanging. I took a piece of vintage sheet music and added pink crepe paper along the top and bottom of the music sheet. I then glued that piece to the center of the hanging.
I added a strip of pink scrapbook paper also by OA, and then cut out the Santa image and glue it to the center of the hanging. I added gold glitter to accent the Santa and silver glitter along the edges of the crepe paper.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch to punch a decorative border along a piece of red cardstock and glue to the bottom of the wall hanging. I then added 3 chipboard ornaments by Cosmo Cricket along the bottom. You could hand draw ornaments or print them off the computer to achieve this same look.
Punch 2 small holes at the top corners and tie ribbon to create your hanger.
A simple yet fun project to do as Christmas is fast approaching!
I wish you all a lovely Sunday, Lindsey
