The team at Xyron is so excited to be hopping with Stencil Girl this week! We're on the final day of the hop so be sure to head on over to Aint She Crafty to get your hands on some crafty swag!

This holiday decor piece is perfect for hanging on the wall or displaying on an easel – ring in the holiday cheer with Santa! The Santa image was transferred onto a pencil canvas with Xyron's Glue Stick and glittered accents were created with Xyron's 1.5″ Create-A-Sticker. The holly leaves were handcut from wool felt and embellished with fabric paint in copper using a Stencil Girl Stencil to create a modern look.


I was recently at a friend's house and she had all kinds of wall decor up for Halloween; I never really thought to decorate the wall with framed art or canvases for the holidays. But it was kind of a cool concept! I figure we're so close to Halloween now, that I didn't want to make something that would only be up for a week so I went with a Christmas project.


To create a pencil canvas base like this one, check out this video I made on my YouTube channel:

The Santa image here was printed onto Craft Attitude Printable Flim and adhered to the pencils using Xyron Glue Stick for Corners (which is the best glue stick ever!). Then I hand cut holly leaves from wool felt. I laid the Squared Off Stencil Girl Stencil onto the leaves and painted them with Lumiere Light Body Metallic Acrylic Paint by Jacquard in Burnt Orange. I ahdered the leaves to the canvas and then layered seveal diecut and embossed poinsettias I made from gold tissue paper. Next, I punched circles that were about 1/4″in diameter larger than the buttons I planned to add to this canvas and ran them through the Xyron 1.5″ Create-A-Sticker. I added the buton to the center of the adhesive side of each circle and then adhered to the canvas using Xyron's 3/8″ Adhesive Dots. I sprinkled glitter over the circles to create a pretty accent..


I hope you enjoyed today's post!
