Christmas Craft - 3D Picture

Walter, as usual, is very excited about Christmas.  Gifts, candies, lots of pretty lights and decorations ... he's in heaven!  So, I thought I'd do a little quick craft with him today to start the season off.

I went to Ikea Friday night to get the supplies:
  • White 3D picture frame
  • Shiny red garland
  • Set of natural and red hearts
  • Set of felt birds

Walter was very excited and pulled everything out while I was still putting the laundry in the washing machine!  It was pretty easy to do.  We simply took the back off the picture frame and started laying things down, temporarily putting the back on and having a look.  A few tweaks did it.

We first placed it on the mantel, but decided that a glass object leaning on a mantel wasn't a great idea with an excited five-year-old ... so, it's sitting on my favourite teak desk next to the fireplace.

First signs of Christmas in the house!


  1. I love this. It is an angry birds happy Christmas me, anyway.

    1. I didn't even notice that! Quite funny since Walter is obsessed with Angry Birds at the moment. I'll have to see if I can find some yellow and black birds to add to the effect ;)
