Transform your home into a winter wonderland with our Shadow Box! This DIY project offers a delightful and straightforward way to infuse the spirit of Christmas into your decor.
This Shadow Box combines graceful imagery of Reindeer, cardinals, and a charming barn set against a snowy winter night, which is a perfect addition to your holiday decorations. To help the shadow box be more attractive, you should put a 5mm foam board between each layer of paper, which can create a 3D space.
Moreover, using white paper in combination with the LEDs installed on the back will create a beautiful light effect. In case you don’t like using LEDs, you can use a combination of colorful paper instead. This also creates the same effect. You’ll be captivated by its exquisite beauty!
This masterpiece is commonly showcased within a shadow box (free SVG box that you can get here), used to decorate homes, bedrooms, living rooms, offices, etc. More special, it will be a great gift for your loved ones at the beginning of the new year!
- Foam board (the thickness is about 3-7 mm)
- Tracing paper
- Lights (we used these in several Halloween projects this year and loved them)
- Shadow box frame, depth at least 6-8cm (2.5-3 inches)
- Design: 3D Come Back Home Light box, Winter SVG Paper Cut File.
A note about the lights we used – The lights are waterproof and controlled by a remote control that actually works pretty well. You can choose the light color since they have different settings for different color lights. They also take batteries so that you can use them again. However, because of the cheap price, they would be a bust, so be careful!

Steps to make A Christmas Reindeer and Cardinal Shadow Box With Christmas SVG Cut Files
Download this template from the link below.
If you’re using a Cricut, upload the Christmas SVG files into Cricut Design Space and import them into a new project. However, be sure to click “Attach” in the bottom right corner to keep the pieces in the right place.
You can also resize the cutout to match your frame size. Click “Make It” and centre the cutout on your paper on the cutting mat layout before clicking “Continue”.
Cut the card stock to align with the measurements of the frame’s interior. Then, stack the layers on one another. Remember to place the foam between the layers in a manner that gives a protrusion appearance. This will help create a captivating 3D depth illusion for the Christmas SVG Cut Files.
Tape a sheet of tracing paper to the back of the cardstock so that the light radiates more evenly and beautifully!
Use hot glue to fix the LED strip or Fairy Light to the back of the shadow box. How many you need depends on how big your frame is. For our smallest frame, we only use one; for our largest, we use four.
Crafting a Christmas Reindeer and Cardinal Shadow Box with Christmas SVG cut files is a delightful way to add a personal touch to your holiday decorations. With just a little creativity and the right materials, you can create a charming and unique piece of Christmas decor that will bring joy to your home throughout the holiday season. So, prepare your crafting supplies, choose your favorite SVG cut files, and let your creativity shine this Christmas!
