One of my very favorite things about Christmas time are Christmas songs.  I have a few favorites.  I love the feeling I get when I hear these songs being sung.  One of my very favorites is ‘Silent Night’.  Such sweet words.  I decided that I was going to frame the words and display them in my living room by my Christmas tree this year.

For this project, you will need:

An 8×10 frame

Paint in whatever color you like


The words to your favorite Christmas song typed up

*I have included a free download for the Silent Night words that I digi-scrapped at the bottom of this post.  🙂

First I took the back off and the glass out of my frame and painted it.  I used a shimmery silver paint since my Christmas colors in my living room are silver and green.

While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled some sparkley white glitter all over my frame.  I shook off the excess and let it dry.

After it was dry, I put in the words to my song and I was finished.   I used the December kits by Crystal Wilkerson.  Us girls at The Crafting Chicks love Crystal and her awesome digi-kits.  🙂 

I really like how it turned out.  I love that my children see these sweet words and can stop and remember what Christmas is really all about.  🙂

Here is the free download so you can make your own.  Just follow the link :

I hope everyone has a very special holiday season!

    Hey Jen…I just uploaded your free download and it’s giving me a warning that the resolution is too low. Did you have this problem when you printed yours or did you just print yours at home? I love this and it is perfect for a last minute gift!
