Step 1: Spread a layer of the School Glue Gel on the wooden frames.

Step 2: Sprinkle the Glitter on to the frame and tap off excess. Allow to dry completely.

Step 3: Print out the Printables from above and trim them up to fit the frames. Then apply the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the areas that you want to highlight with a snow effect.

Step 4: Sprinkle on the Diamond Dust, to the areas where you applied the Dimensional Magic. And tap off the excess and let dry completely.

Step 5: Apply School Glue Gel to the back of the frame, just along the edge.

Step 6: Place your printed graphic face down, onto the glue and press firmly. Blot up any excess glue with a towel. Once it’s dry you can add a ribbon to hang it. I used some tinsel ribbon from Michaels, it was wired and easy to twist into shape.

So pretty! This is the one that I did with the Dove …

and here is the Christmas Tree version.

Here are all 3 of them on my Tree! You can’t really tell, but they are super glittery and really shimmer!!
