Purchased at Michael's

Creating your Shadow Box design

Start off by painting the inside of your box red. The sides, top, and bottom of the inside will be painted white.

Once you have painted the inside of your box, you can now paint the outside of your box. Start with painting the front outer section white.

Begin to paint the outside of your box green. The top, sides, and bottom of the outer sections of your box will be painted green.

Set your box aside, and allow it to completely dry.

This step is completely optional, but once you have allowed your box to dry, you can add some red glitter to the back section that you have painted red.

Next, take your hot glue, and attach your camper to the inside of your box. After doing this, you can add your greenery and pinecone.

Take your craft clothespins, and add them to the front, top section of your box. One clothespin on each side of your box. Use some hot glue to add them.

Next, take your scissors, and cut off a strand of twine. You will want your strand of twine to be long enough to go from one clothespin to the other.

Take some of your bells, and string them along the twine. Once you have done this, take the ends of your twine, gently open up the clothespins, and add the ends of the twine on both sides.

Once you have added on your bells your project is now complete.

This was such a fun, and easy craft to create. I think this will look great added to a tray with other Christmas decorations.
