Holiday Joy

Joy Frame for Clear Scraps

The Joy Frame is a Quick and Easy Holiday Home Décor project. 
Supplies Needed:
  • 6" Nordic Snowflakes stencil
  • Chipboard Letters  (mine are 1/2" thick and 3 1/2" tall)
  • 12 x 12 Holiday Scrapbook Paper
  • Old Frame
  • Red and Cream Acrylic Paint
  • Stencil Brush
  • Tim Holtz:  Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Ink Applicator
  • Black Spray Paint
  • Craft Glue
  • Greenery, Gingham Bow, Button and Red Jingle Bell
  1. Remove the backing and glass from an old frame and spray painted it black.  My frame holds an 8 1/2 x 11 picture.
  2. Cut the scrapbook paper to size and add to frame.
  3. Paint the chipboard letters red.
  4. Stencil Snowflake design onto the red letters with cream paint.
  5. Apply a light coat of red paint over the snowflakes.
  6. Antique the letters with Vintage Photo ink and ink applicator.
  7. Glue inside of frame.
  8. Embellish frame with some greenery and a red and cream gingham bow.
I love using the word "JOY" in my holiday decorating.  
Stenciled joy
Craft Confession:  
The original plan was to have cream snowflakes on red letters.  After I got through with the stenciling, I thought the snowflakes looked too bright so I decided to re-paint the letters.   As soon as I put on the first thin layer of paint, I loved the tone on tone result.  Happy Accident!
