Chrismas Home Decor by Rhonda van Ginkel

Christmas will be here soon, so we will provide you with lots of Christmas inspiration over the next few weeks. Today Rhonda van Ginkel has a gorgeous project to share that you could use to decorate your house for Christmas.

"Greetings and welcome to the blog, it’s Rhonda here today to share my project with you. I have a classic holiday home decor project to share with you featuring the Winter Joy collection by ScrapBerry's. This collection has some beautiful vintage images as well as coordinating embellishments."

"I found these cute wooden displays at a local craft store over the summer and thought I would use one to create a festive holiday decoration for my desk. The base of it is prepared with a cream acrylic paint. 

First I selected my foundation paper that I wanted to feature, traced around the shape and trimmed to size. I adhered it with some Mod Podge to ensure a nice strong hold and then sanded the edges for a perfect finish.

"I wanted a good contrast to my floral background paper so I chose the Santa image from my tag and cut it out. To accent his appearance, I added touches of shimmer to his beard and the trees using my Wink of Stella clear glitter. I cut a small doily and pine branches to add to the design. A Cherry Blossom flower is combined with a metal bottle cap and resin flower to create a collage.

The sentiment is trimmed from the “Cards” paper. The edges are inked and the shape is formed a bit and adhered with foam dimensional adhesive. A bow using White Wax String is tucked into the floral collage for texture. I’ve used a cinnamon stick and lightly coated it with some paint as well."
