'JOY' Home Decor by Patty Folchert


Here is a fun way to add some holiday d├ęcor to your home. Elves are very popular around these parts, so I wanted to utilize the super cute elf stamps from the Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup Christmas Cheer Chowder stamp set. 

Joy Wood Blocks by Patty Folchert

Here is a close up photo of each block:





The wood blocks were already painted white so I just selected the patterned papers: Candied Cheer, Mixed Merry and the Bite Size Bit from the Jillibean Soup Christmas Cheer Chowder line and cut them to fit the block fronts and sides. Then I adhered them to the blocks with Mod Podge under paper and over the top of papers and allowed them to dry. The “Joy” letters were cut on the Cricut in a 3 inch size of a standard font using Tossed Tinsel paper. The elves and sentiment were stamped with dark brown ink onto white cardstock and fussy cut out. I added some bling buttons to the elves in pink and green.  The letters were added with 3D foam dots and the elves with regular adhesive. The sentiment was folded up and out and then attached with 3D dots. A white silk bow finished the set nicely.

That was all it took to add a couple elves on my shelf.

Decking the Halls,
Patty
