Golden Noel Holiday Decor

The large size of this NOEL sign, combined with the simplicity of its golden coloring, make it a stand out accent for holiday decorating. This one was designed for indoor use, but you could easily adapt it for outdoor use by spraying with DecoArt Americana Spray Sealant, and creating a fabric flower, or using a pre-made faux flower instead of the paper version.

Project Materials

  • DecoArt®
    • Dazzling Metallics®
      • Emperor’s Gold
  • Assorted barn red and dark green Christmas-patterned papers

Create paper poinsettia embellishment by cutting 5 large petals from one red patterned paper, 5 medium from a complementary paper, and 3 small from the original paper. (Print and trace a pattern if desired, but I just randomly cut mine.) Cut 3 large petals from green partnered paper to serve as leaves. Mountain fold each in half lengthwise. Unfold, and then carefully valley fold, beginning at each petal point, twice on each side.
