Christmas Gift Bag Wall Art


Hi Friends,

I'm so glad you are here today!  

I have another easy project to share with you.









You will need a gift bag, a wood box frame and Mod Podge.

Glitter is optional.

 Most bags will have artwork on both sides.

I prefer the bags that are not shiny. The matte paper works well with Mod Podge.




You will also need a wood box type frame to recycle.


I found this one for .99 at a thrift shop.

These are easy to find- you may even have some around

the house that you want to change their design.



This is the back of the box. 

You can use either side!



Cut sides of bag, discard bottom piece.



Save side panels for another project.


Measure and cut your bag to fit box.



I gave a light sanding to the front and then covered the artwork

with white acrylic paint.

You can also dry brush the sides.


After the paint dries, use Mod Podge to cover front surface.

Adhere picture to box and smooth down edges.


Add glitter if you prefer, using a bit of Mod Podge.



Here's another-


This box was damaged, but that won't matter.

Lightly sand the paper artwork to remove the shine.

With this box, the artwork will be on the inside of frame.


I painted the edges the same colors to match the picture.



My picture is shorter than my box, so I will start to glue my picture top first.

The white paint at the base will hide that problem with 'snow '

I used antiquing wax to darken the frame.


Then used Mod Podge to adhere my picture.




I used more glitter on this box.






And one more-


For the last box I covered the other side.

I used white paint to dry brush the edges.






I decided not to add any glitter to the last box.



I love how easy these boxes are to make.



They always sell out at my craft sales.





I think they make nice gifts.

I like that the box can sit on a shelf and you don't need to hang them.

Tell me what you think-





Thank you so much for being here!

It means a lot to me.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

  23. Congratulations! Your adorable gift bag wall art is one of the features at the Friday With Friends Link Party.
    I've been lookin at my own gift bag collection to see which ones can be turned into holiday art. Such a wonderful way to upcycle.

    Thank you for visiting the party and I hope to see you this week.

  24. Last year I fell in love with the little red truck. Had never done (I'm 69) a themed decor--I got dish towels and potholders from the Christmas Tree Shop, a metal truck from Hobby Lobby, and several ornaments. I found Christmas shirt boxes in different sizes and framed 3--one for me, one for the church bazaar, and the last for a friend who admired it! I saved the sides of the box which had greenery and red berries and used them for Scrabble tile ornnaments! I crammed 2 box bottoms together to actually use for gifts! Win-win-win! Since then I have found and framed car pix and even a British 2-decker bus with Santa driving!I have also added glitter to Christmas cards and framed them (5x7"ish).
