This Is my Winter Wonderland Post Challenge. I was so excited to do this post, It was so much fun. I really like making things with lights, it makes things so magical for me. I thought this up because I really wanted to make something in a type of shadow box. It's winter wonderland so of course it had to have snow, and wouldn't be winter wonderland without a snow man.

This is all the products I used, I gathered all the stuff together and got started. Have to have a good glue, and I really like the glue E6000 it works very well on all types of projects.
This is the painted box, I picked red for the back ground because I figused red would make all my accessories pop. So I painted the inside of the box and the outer frame of the box Red. painted the front edge of the box hunter green. I picked Christmas green at first, but it was just too bright, so I went with hunter green.
This is the box in the process of painting I decided to paint the inside of the box red and the outside of the frame red. The reason I choose red is because I wanted my accessories to pop. And then I painted the front frame of the box Hunter green. I choose Christmas green at first but it was just too bright, and after painting the hunter It looks really good.
This is the process of jazzing it all up, I found this Awesome garland at Kroger. It's so pretty and worked so well. It's twisted with a little bit of wire in it. It really added a cute effect and it worked great, and I glued it to the inside edge. Then the next step is to add all the accessories. I Used fuzzy felt for the snow, and bought the small decorations, at Michaels craft store, and the lights from Hobby Lobby. Now the Exciting part the Finished Winter Wonderland.
