DIY Light Up Shadow Box Decoration

Hey friends, today I’m sharing this very festive light up shadow box decoration.

I had made this for myself and didn’t plan on doing a tutorial, however, my sister came over and saw mine and loved it so much that she asked if I would make her one!

I have made these before, I love collecting old vintage decorations and this is a great way to display them.

This measures 12″ x 12″ x 3″ and can hold a lot!

You can fill them with anything you want and these can be done for many occasions, they make great keepsake gifts.

The lights are optional, but it does look great when it’s all lit up.

You don’t have to have the acetate either, as long as everything is secured well, it looks lovely open as well.

I cut the ‘Merry Christmas’ using my Cricut and some Arteza Self Adhesive Vinyl.
