Christmas Decor with some Bo Bunny

St. Nick is here...from Bo Bunny, that is! This beautiful and traditional collection features holly leaves, mistletoe, stockings, and vintage Santas. It's perfect for creating home decor items as well as documenting your holiday memories.

Here's a look at some holiday decor created with St. Nick:

You can easily create this framed art by choosing a mat, frame (remove the glass), and a few sheets of patterned paper. Paint the sides of the wooden "Joy", then cover each letter with paper using Mod Podge. Decorate the letters with matching stickers and ribbon. Then attach "Joy" to the mat with strong glue. It a short time, you will have a beautiful decoration!

This "Believe" banner is fun to make and very versatile. Start with a chipboard base and cut into as many triangles as you would like. Decorate with bits of patterned paper and ribbon. Die cut stars and letters to spell anything you would like.

I discovered a super easy way to attach glitter to the die cut letters without making a big mess. First, die cut your letters from cardstock. Then, run them upside down through a Xyron sticker maker. This will attach adhesive to the front of the letter.Then sprinkle them with glitter and shake off the excess. It's as easy as can be and virtually mess free! (I loved the Martha Stewart glitter for this project).

Attach the banner together with wire or ribbon. You can leave a little space in between each pennant for tying bits of lace and ribbon if desired. Attach part of a Christmas pick to each end and finish off with some more pretty ribbons.

I even had enough patterned paper left over to create a simple Christmas layout. Bo Bunny's package of buttons and bling were perfect for creating this tree embellishment.
