Christmas On A Tray!

Hi everyone! I needed some new Christmas decor so of course being the crafty person I am, I made my own! I was inspired by a frame I saw at my local Michaels store and came up with this adorable wall hanging!

The tray was natural wood and needed to be a brighter Christmas-y color. I chose red because it's my favorite and fit so well with the paper line from Carta Bella that I was using. I distressed it a bit first with a layer of black paint underneath, painted over that  with the red and then sanded a bit.

The hard part was choosing which papers would line the tray since all of the ones included with the CB  'Christmas Delivery' collection are adorable! I wanted to be able to change the photos over the years so I created all of the frames to be hung from attached clips which were adorned with their own ribbons and bows! 

I made three frames, one large and two smaller, to hold my treasured photos. The large one features this sweet tag that is layered with some cute pieces of the collection. A picture will slide underneath it and will be held by the clip.

Both smaller frames also have attached tags that aren't completely stuck down so pictures will slide under too! I layered more of the paper collection stickers and chipboard along with my own sequins and gems!

I also added in some additional stickers and chipboard pieces for more fun decoration! I especially love this truck carrying a tree which I glittered up for lots of shine!

The final touches were a fun plaid bow adorning a charming winter spray of berries and pine cones! I even added one of the sticker elements to the center! Hope this inspires you to create some of your own Christmas decor!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
