Make easy DIY Christmas Art that is fun, reusable, and amazing!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Hello I Live Here’s Christmas post for today is DIY Christmas Art! Yep, we are recycling some old frames from our basement decorator corner.  We kept the DIY Christmas art simple and classic using an ordinary black and gold frame and removed the old photos to add our own DIY Christmas Art 🙂  Because the frame is so versatile once you are done using it for Christmas, simply change that ribbon and add a couple photos of your children or grandchildren and continue using it year round.

Here’s how we made our DIY Christmas Art project:

First, we searched our decor area for the perfect long frame.  I wanted a frame that had two smaller pictures and I knew I wanted it to be black and gold.  After I found it I ran straight to my crafts table and got to work 🙂  I cut the paper on the back open, removed the inside cardboard backing by pushing back on the staples, and removed the glass, storing it for later use.

Then, we took out the two smaller photos, turned them over and used Mod Podge glue to stick down our cut out piece of burlap that has a few sparkles in it.

We glued two small black clothes pins purchased from Joann’s to the burlap to hold our new art.

Then, we painted a small wooden Angel and star (both purchased from Michael’s) –in red.

Once the angel and star dried, we clipped them under the small black clothes pins.

To finish the look, we used burlap and red and white twine we purchased from Target – The same twin we used in our DIY Joy Stocking Hanger post last night.  Once finished we hung next to our Christmas tree upstairs.

This was an easy, under $5.00 project for Hello I Live Here.  We had everything left in our craft room to use for this project, including the angel and the star (which I use as package tags when I wrap my gifts).  This simple project took about 30 minutes to create – and the best thing I can use this again after Christmas is over.

That’s Hello I Live Here’s post for today!  I hope you are enjoying the art projects.  Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
