Super easy Christmas or Holiday craft | DIY modern holiday decorations

We’re working on lots of fun stuff, but I made this up this evening and thought I’d share.  I wanted some fun framed holiday decorations, and something that was a little more modern.  First, I had this 12x12 shadow box frame I had picked up on sale at Hobby Lobby.

Then I found a piece of scrapbook paper, you could use patterned but I found this shimmery silverish color

I found these little tubes of cute little bows for $1 and figured I could do something fun with them, so I figured, why not frame them?

I wanted them in a square, but you could do any shape.  A circle or triangle like a tree would be fun.  I measured, and penciled in a square, I ended up going with a 2 1/2” border.

Then just lay out all of the little bows into the shape.  25 little bows fit nicely into my square.  How appropriate.

Now, you could be very easy on yourself and just use the sticky back of the bows and stick them on, but I felt like being difficult and wanted to see what it would look like when I used these foamy sticky things I bought on clearance.

Stick them all on your paper and stand it up to make sure none fall off, then erase your guide lines.

 

Then, just pop it in the frame and you’re done!  My kind of project!
