NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS MERRY & BRIGHT WALL HANGING | with Jennifer

Hello Doodlebug friends. Can you believe Christmas is just a few days away? Today I'm sharing a custom piece that is a combination of a couple of projects I've done before so it may look a little familiar. This time, however, I used the Night Before Christmas collection.

The project's base was cut from wood. The ledge was made from a combination of wood and foam board to reach a 3/4" thickness. A cutting file was used for the two smaller houses on each side, and the windmill was designed in the Silhouette Designer program.

This wall hanging is full of fun little details. Here are some of them.

Two doodle-pop stickers were added to the Santa and his sleigh die-cut. One for his head and part of a stocking filled with toys to fill his sack. Chipboard or wood was used to reinforce all of the die-cuts.

I added some snowmen doodle-pops on either side of the piece. These are from an older collection but worked beautifully on the piece.

More doodle-pops and a wood snowflake were used to embellish the windmill. I used white paper frills and borders for even more detail.

The ledge was covered with some border strips and edged with twine. I always try to add a title to my pieces, and for this one, "Merry and Bright" seemed to fit. Just for fun, I added a wood bell, some more die-cuts, and sprinkles underneath the ledge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Merry Christmas! :)
