All month I’ve been wanting to make some sort of DIY Santa Claus artwork. At first I thought I’d do something with pallets, but never got around to grabbing an old pallet from work. But then I remembered I had this 1980’s print hanging around and decided to transform it into this DIY Santa Claus picture.
2. Tear out book pages being sure to the leave all edges a little ragged.
3. Mod Podge the pages over the existing print, laying pages in different directions.
4. Using Mod Podge again, apply a vintage Santa graphic atop the book pages, smoothing out wrinkles.
I sprinkled more glitter around the edges of the Santa print to add a little more interest and sparkle. When the glitter glue was dry, I placed the picture back in the frame, which I slightly distressed after painting it.
I layered my DIY Santa Claus picture on top of my repurposed shutters.
I dressed it up a bit with my Ho Ho Ho banner and some vintage tinsel and beads.
And now I finally have my DIY Santa Claus picture, although I still want to do something with a pallet. That might have to wait until next year since Christmas is less than a week away! Are you ready for the holiday?
