Picture Frame with DecoDen Bling

Have you gotten in on the decoden trend yet?

Decoden is a trend from Japan! The term "deco" is short for decorated and "den" is short for "denwa" meaning "phone" in Japanese. This craze has swept the crafting world!

My husband and I recently took a trip to Walt Disney World and that place is "Frozen" crazy. Olaf the snowman, Elsa, and Anna were everywhere! We had our picture taken with the Olaf outside Hollywood Studios -- I thought this would be a great jumping off point for my own project.

I had the pleasure of trying out DecoDen Bling from Signature Crafts (provided to me by the company) and I loved it! It's a dimensional paste that comes in these cool squeeze tubes and you apply it with decorative tips, just like you would use on a cake! The paste comes in 9 colors which makes it so versatile and it's nice and thick so it will hold any sort of bling you want to add to your project.

I started with a fun acrylic easel frame from Deflecto Crafts. I used the star tip and the white DecoDen Bling paste to go around the edge of the frame so that it looks almost like snowflakes. I then used the turquoise paste  to add a little color to the "snowflakes". Finally, I added a glitter snowflake (that was an ornament  until I snipped off the string!).

I then placed our picture on Rowlux Illusion Film and put it in the frame! That's it! This was a sun and totally easy project that you could do with kids (a "Frozen" party activity, maybe?).

Christmas Craft Project: Card Holders

I love to display the Christmas cards we get from family and friends, but I am always at a loss as to how to show them off. When I saw the VersaGrip magnetic sign holders and angled sign holders from Deflecto, I knew that I could turn them into a holiday-rific solution!

The first sign holder I altered was the angled sign holder. They start out looking like this:
With just a small plastic snowflake ornament from Michaels and a couple of glue dots, it turns into a simple but cute card holder!

The other Deflecto product that I used was the VersaGrip magnetic sign holders.

On this holder, I added some tinsel and a piece of a vintage plastic floral spray (I adore vintage Christmas stuff!).

For a finishing touch, I made a "Merry Christmas" sign using Deflecto's chalkboard-look sign tags! These tags are so cool -- they can be cut to size and you can clean off the ink from the included pen with water.

I decorated the other holder with mini ornaments I picked up at Michaels and some clear tinsel.

I hope that these have inspired you! You can use so many different bits and baubles to turn these sign holders into a cool part of your holiday decor!

Materials used:
sign holders and sign tags - Deflecto
mini ornaments - Michaels
adhesive - Thermoweb
tinsel and vintage spray from my stash!
