Santa on a Rectangular Tray with Peace Sign

The shape of this rectangular silver tray was a perfect match for this project. A small Santa ornament from Hobby Lobby, diamond dusted poinsettia, harlequin decoupage and evergreen floral picks on a silver tray make this very elegant and sophisticated.

Lexi and I did a FACEBOOK LIVE video tutorial on how to make this and an angel frame. Click HERE to see that video.

The Facebook Audience helped me choose PEACE for the top. I love how the Santa Hat came already with Sparkles.

I began with a rectangular tray that was plain and tarnished. But I loved how it was blackish and had an ornate design at the top and bottom.

Here is how it looked BEFORE.

Since it did have that black tarnish I wanted to go with it…and add black and off white harlequin paper to bring it out even more.

I cut it to fit and used matte Mod Podge to decoupage it down with. I put some on top to seal it too.

Next, I arranged all the embellishments. The Santa, the peace sign and the greenery. I used hot glue to attach it all.

Sorry, my camera wasn’t flipped but here it is on finished. Come on over to Facebook and check out the Live Video.

I DIAMOND DUSTED the poinsettia and added a TOTALLY DAZZLED brooch to the center. I chose glittery berries to match the glitter on the flower and Santa hat.

I made it to fit on an easel. But you could also make it into a wall hanging.

Santa in a Silver Bowl

Hi Everyone!

Take a large glass or plastic SANTA Christmas Tree Ornament and turn it into a remarkable piece of decor. I made other wall hangings with silver trays, but knew this Santa needed something different. He would not have fit well on a flat surface. The silver BOWL is perfect. The Santa fit perfectly inside with room for a festive bow and red glitter pine cones.

I painted the decorative edge of the bowl with red enamel craft paint. I wanted it to stand out and be seen since it is so pretty.

I hot glued and used E6000 to glue the Santa in the bowl. I made an easy crossover bow with red ribbons that matched the red of the paint and the red on the Santa. Then the glitter pinecones also matched perfectly so I had to add them too.

It all came together perfectly!

I have a FAST PLAY video on my YouTube Channel that you are welcome to watch. Please click HERE.

Don’t dismiss those silver trays you see when you are at garage sales, thrift stores and flea markets. There are numerous ways to repurpose them. Think HOLIDAYS!
