Wednesday WOW... Farmhouse Christmas Box Frame Light Decor

And this did indeed WOW...

And I do have to admit to this... maybe... being my most favourite project I have created ever... it certainly made me very happy when I had finished it... and turned on the lights... And it will be coming out every Christmas from now on...
Box Frame from Aldi when they were doing a special the other week... but any other brand would work! External 25cm (nearly 10"). Internal 21.5cm (8 1/2") Though do note that the Aldi frames have the glass at the back... so it had to be removed totally for this project... whereas other makes have the glass at the front... so I could have left it in...

Lights from Poundland... 10 bright white light wire string with AA battery box version used here... though a coin box version would have been easier... but funnily enough the work round was quite good, tidy and invisible in the end!
Twinkle Twinkle papers used for the night sky as just so perfect for the job!! I would really love a whole 12 sheet pack of this pattern!!! Though quite a lot of the other patterns in this pack actually do work for Christmas too...

Again lots of  use of the stamps and dies in Farmhouse ChristmasMerry Christmas to All ,Winter Woods and Rooted in Nature... with a lot of Stampin Blends action for colouring...
And my favourite detail... spot the merry to the top left... this starts off life as a flat grey embellishment... which was great... but a bit of Sponge Dauber and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint action later... and you end up with a lovely silvery and shimmery embellishment instead! Little detail... Big effect!

Though it may be difficult to see how silvery... and how well it shimmers in the photo!! So you may just have to trust me ...and try it!
And yes this project is available to create in my workshops throughout November & December... just book in now to avoid disappointment!!! Which is code for I only have a certain number of the box frames left in stock... though I can always get more!! Half Day (2 1/2 hour) for £20... or free with a £65 Stampin' Up! order
