The materials I used to make this shadow box project were a shadow box, paper, ornaments, glue dots and scissors. The white shadow box is from Michaels. If you have extra ornaments, then you are set. I was particular with the kind of ornaments I wanted to display, so I ended up buying new ones at Target. I was originally going to have red, green and white ornaments but I love having only two colors.
Want to know how to make this Holiday Ornament Shadow Box Display? Keep reading…it’s easy:
I printed out “JOY to the World” on white paper. I spaced out the “J” and the “Y” so an ornament could fit in between to be the “O” in the word JOY. I cut the paper to fit the shadow box frame. I glued a few ornaments to the top part of the paper. One of them is the letter O in the word JOY. I decided to glue two more ornaments. I did this because I liked their placement at the top and wanted it to be permanent. I figured the rest of the ornaments would naturally lie below them. I used glue dotsto secure these ornaments.
I placed the remaining ornaments in the shadow box. I rearranged as needed until I liked the way it looked.
The last thing I did was place the “JOY to the World” print out (and it’s glued on ornaments) into the frame. That’s it! An easy project with a beautiful result. My Ornament Shadow Box Display has been added to the rest of my Christmas mantle decorations.
