I love creating and making things to display in my home and this DIY Believe Christmas Plaque is a fab decoration that can be brought out each festive season. You can also coordinate the colours to match your decorations year on year as it is so inexpensive to make and one you have the frame and backing you only need to change the words which are made of paper.

This super simple Believe Plaque is a perfect make to add to your Christmas decor, plus you can make it traditional or contemporary in style by changing the style of paper that you use. Or if you are one of those people that changes their colour and decorations each year you can make a new one to match annually!

I designed the Believe template on my Cricut machine so you don’t have to. You also don’t have to have a cutting machine as you can print our the letters and tree on a printer and use them as templates to cut out your festive scrapbook card. You can download you template or cutting file here

The ribba frame from Ikea the background is a card colour and I wanted my tree to be that colour, so used a scrap of white woodgrain wallpaper to cover it. I secured it at the rear with masking tape.

Blu Tack foam pads are perfect for adding depth to your plaque by lifting the letters up off the wallpaper slightly.
