Hi friends! Becky here with you today to share my Focus on Wooden Phrases!
I found a fabulous shadow box frame at my local thrift store ages ago and I’ve been hanging onto it and waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it. Well today is the day!

It was a really ugly wood color originally (probably why it ended up at the thrift store) but I just gave it a coat of off-white paint and set off to decorate each of these fun little windows.
Because the frame was a shadow box I knew it was perfect to use some of the more dimensional items that FPD carries such as the clothes pins, christmas trees, flair and especially the WOODEN PHRASES!
The phrases are awesome to use ‘as is’ but because I was making a Christmas project I decided to add a little bling to one of them.
I started with the ‘memories’ wooden phrase and painted a thick coat of Mod Podge onto it.
Next I sprinkled a thick layer of chunky red glitter all over the whole thing.
I shook off the excess glitter and allowed the piece to dry completely. Then I painted another layer of Mod Podge over top of the red glitter to seal it all in.
And when it was dry it was ready to attach to my project. I used some small glue dots to attach the phrase to the frame so that there is a space between it and the photo and other decorations, it adds great dimension.
I used a second phrase on my project as well, but this time I didn’t do too much to it except for add a phrase sticker to continue the sentiment.
As a little treat I’ve got some close ups to share with you of how I decorated the rest of the windows in this frame. I think I used something from every single bit of the Merry Little Christmas Collection!
Well, there you have it! I hope you’ve be able to find some inspiration today and that you will give altering your wooden phrases a try!
