Today I have a simple Christmas wall art tutorial and a our kitchen Christmas decor reveal. I hope you enjoy!
In October my local Dollar Tree already had all of their Christmas stuff on the shelves. I found a cute wooden cut out of the words “Merry & Bright.” I wasn’t sure what I would do with it, but I found out today.
Our kitchen decor theme this Christmas is red buffalo check. I made two wreaths for our cabinets over the microwave and a candy cane wreath for our laundry room door. They look so good, but it left the opposite side looking a little bare.
I didn’t want to make the same wreaths for these cabinets, but I thought about my wood sign, and I had an epiphany for Christmas wall art!
Supplies you will need for your Christmas wall art:
- “Merry & Bright” wood cut out
- White acrylic paint & paint brush
- 2.5″ red buffalo check wired ribbon
- 1/8″ black ribbon
- Pipe cleaner (chenille stem)
Paint the front of the piece white as well as the edges. You will need at least two coats. This wood soaks it in fast!
Next cut 20″ of your 1/8″ black ribbon. Glue one end to the back of the “M” and the other to the “y.” Make sure they’re glued vertically, not diagonally. That will keep the wood straight when you hang it.
Make Your Bow
Lastly you’ll make a bow out of your 2.5″ ribbon. Make two loops, one on the left & one on the right, then make tails of about 4″ each. If you need further instructions, see my post of my kitchen cabinet wreaths here. When you secure your bow with the pipe cleaner, leave enough of it to wrap your bow on to the ribbon that your wall art will hang from. Wrap your 1/8″ ribbon around the pipe cleaner to hide. Glue both ends to the back of the bow. Place your bow on the wall art by twisting the pipe cleaner around your black ribbon at the top center.
Now you are finished and you have a beautiful Christmas decoration to deck your halls!
