Aww ’tis the season to be {JOY}ful! Our house is starting to look pretty festive right now. I’m one of those who go all out with my Christmas decorating (especially after having kids).

I used the frames I had leftover from my pumpkin decorating party this year. I thought they would be perfect for this project and they were already painted white, which worked out perfect!

Getting Started

I got all my materials from Micheals. They have a good selection of these frames right now for a pretty reasonable price. Especially, if you use your “Handy Dandy” 40% percent off coupon!

I got the JOY last year on clearance at Michaels for .29 cents each!! I pulled out some cardstock that matches my Advent Calender. I’ve been trying to incorporate this color into my holiday decorating. I just love it!!

Framed JOY Christmas Decor Letter Art: Getting Started

Step 1 – Cut Your Cardstock

I laid my frame on the corner of my cardstock and traced out the inner edge. I pulled out my scissors and cut out my background (leaving a little extra on the sides).

Quick Tip: Make sure to leave the traced side facing out. You don’t want to {accidentally} glue the wrong side down (like I did at first).

Step 2 – Add Your Cardstock

I got my “Trusty” hot glue gun ready and laid my cutout on the back of my frame. I added a little hot glue to all four corners and some around the outer edge of the cardstock.

Step 3 – Add Your Letters

When I added my letters, I dabbed a little hot glue to the backs and firmly pressed them done, super simple!!

Making sure they were lined up evenly was probably the hardest part of this step. I can’t make something straight to save my life, thanks goodness for the hubby!

Step 4 – Finishing Touches

Now we’re ready to add our frames to the pallet!! I used double sided command strips for each frame and firmly pressed them on the pallet. All done!!

This really was a pretty simple craft to do. I added the pallet to my entertainment center and it looks pretty cool. It feels so…festive!

I had this button heart craft I made and we decided to turned it into a Christmas tree. How cool is that?? I’ll have that post up soon!!
