Spread Holiday Cheer with a DIY Frosted Christmas Shadow Box

I’m so bummed! It’s December, and there is no snow here in Minnesota. I know! It’s quite a shock to us as well. Although it is nice that the roads have been lovely, and I haven’t had to¬†shovel. But it does not feel like Christmas without snow covered landscapes and frosted window panes. With the possibility of not getting a white Christmas, it’s even more important to make the inside my home festive and bright. I filled my faux tree with ornaments, but the rest of my home needs a bit more Christmas cheer. Inspired by the frost that should be on my windows, I created a frosted¬†Christmas shadow box.

It reminds me of making “baby feet” with my hands on the car window. Glitter and glue makes the frosted effect: so melting isn’t a problem. Adding a string of lights inside the shadow box, gives off a warm holiday glow. You can make it completely your own with any word or simple clip art. The background can be whatever you want too.
