Hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day! It’s tme for us to officially start decorating for Christmas and we are having a blast! This year is all about white and metallics in our home! I wanted to make a few new pieces of decor this year and I started with this DIY Modern Holiday Art made out of wood.
The thing abut this piece is that it’s so easy to customize and make your own. I am a neutral girl at heart but you could paint it red, green, gold, or any other color that fits into your Christmas decor.
And who doesn’t love a little sparkle during the holidays?! :)
– 20″ X 16″ piece of wood
– Sandpaper (if you have unfinished edges)
– Ornament Stencil
– White paint (or your color choice)
– Glue and Silver Glitter
I started with a piece of 20″ X 16″ wood. I cut my piece to size, but you could also buy a finished piece of wood at most craft stores if you don’t want to cut it yourself.
I used my Silhouette to cut out my ornament design on vinyl, but you could also use a stencil or find one on Etsy. I painted the remaining areas of wood white and then peeled off the stencil. I love the reveal, it’s my favorite part!
To give it a little extra pop for the holidays, I added extra sparkle on the edges. I started with silver puff paint but I wanted even more sparkle so I added extra glitter on top. You can never have enough, right?!
Thank you so much for having me, Jen! I can’t wait to see all the rest. Happy Holidays!

I just adore this and how the wood grain peaks through. I just ordered a Silhouette Cameo during the Black Friday sale and can’t wait to have it on hand to help me with projects like this.
