Tools And Supplies Needed
- Canvas or Picture Frames
- Buffalo Plaid Wrapping Paper
- Strong Tape or Hot Glue
- Mod Podge
- Craft Paint
- Foam Brush
- Holiday Cut Outs – Images found via Cricut Design Space – (I used 631 vinyl for the deer head, lettering and the Christmas tree because that is what I had. You can use paper or paint the design on using a stencil)
Quick & Easy Assembly
For the two buffalo plaid covered canvas, I simply wrapped them in this adorable wrapping paper that I found at the Dollar Tree. If your local store doesn’t have this pattern, you can also purchase it through Amazon.
Using my Cricut Explore, I cut two of the deer head cutouts, the Christmas tree and the holiday wording using 631 vinyl. The N, E and L of noel were cut using the same buffalo plaid wrapping paper.
*Tip – Turn the dial on your Cricut to custom, locate the wrapping paper setting in the drop menu. This worked perfectly, with no tearing the thin paper.
Since the vinyl itself is already sticky, no glue or other adhesive was needed.
The other two canvases I painted using white craft paint, 2 coats. Once they were completely dry, I applied the wrapping paper letters using mod podge. Coat the back of the paper with mod podge and apply the letters to the canvas. Let them dry for a few minutes, then go over the top of the paper with another thin coat of mod podge, just to secure.
This whole process took less than an hour to make all 4. Simple and inexpensive, yet they look perfect above the mantel. I added the Rae Dunn Inspired Reindeer Ornaments across the mantel to finish the look. I am so happy with the way it all came out. My new fireplace is all decked out in just the right amount of holiday cheer.
