Shaped MDF frame Merry Christmas Project

Hi everyone, I'm Crystal! I'm a mom to three cuties, wife to an amazing husband, and blogger at

I'm so happy to be here today to share with you an easy Christmas project. I know, I know we're still away from Chistmas, but with how busy the holiday season gets it's great to have projects planned ahead. :)

Supplies: Eleanor Frame Martha Stewart Acrylic Paint (Jet Stream) Pine Cones Felt rick rack Vinyl

To make my new Christmas frame I began by applying three coats of paint. Once the final coat was dry I used my Silhouette to cut out Merry Christmas using vinyl. For the backing I glued on a piece of glittered cardstock. I glued the rick rack onto each pine cone then tied them together. I hot glued the knot directly onto the cardstock, leaving the pine cones to hang loose.


found the adhesive pearl embellishment in the scrapbooking aisle at Hobby Lobby and added pieces of it to both sides of the frame.

And that's it! It's a fairly simple Christmas frame but I love the way it came together. The best part is if I ever get tired of it I can remove the vinyl and change the center to create a new look.

Thank you for having me today. I hope you'll stop by sometime, I love making new friends! To see more of my holiday projects you can subscribe or follow me on:
