Paint the edges of the wood black (or another colour of your choice – red, green, gold or silver would all work great too!)

Gluing Santa, Mrs. Claus and Rudolph silhouettes to wood boards by Champagne and Sugarplums

Use the Mod Podge to glue the silhouettes to the wood. Start with a very thin layer under the paper, let it dry and then cover with another layer to seal the silhouettes in place.
