…so LITTLE time! That is going to be my theme for my craft room ….whenever I get my craft room! I see new things everywhere that I would like to do, blogs, stores, friends homes and I’m not even a third of the way done with what I already have on my “project list”! Thankfully the list only exists in my head!
One of the projects that I have had in mind was to use vinyl on these dollar tree frames.
When I saw these in the store, I hoped that they would be done in true dollar store quality and that the “Friends” would just scrape off. I opened one right there in the store (I knew I would buy at least the one) and scraped with my fingernail…OFF it came! So I grabbed several for future projects.
They’ve just been sitting and waiting for the perfect project and time. I had a project opportunity come up Thursday. My sis in law was having us all (the sisters) over for lunch on Friday. It would be the first time I had been to her new home, so I wanted to bring her a gift. It was a little short notice for a very big project, but this was quick and easy and looked great when it was done!
I took the frame apart, scraped the letters off and washed the glass. Then I gave the wood a couple of coats of satin black spray paint. while it dried, I used my Craft Robo
vinyl cutter and cut out her last name and the year that they married.
Here is the end result:
This picture was taken with my phone after I had given it to my SIL…my girls had used it in black and white and I couldn’t figure out how to get it set back to color! I also removed the little hangers from the back and moved them so the frame would hang in “landscape mode”. I used some black and white ribbon for a hanger.
Quick, easy and thrifty! My kind of project!! I have a couple of giveaways coming up VERY soon…so stay tuned!
I found a new place to party:
I’ll also be linking up to the usual parties on the appropriate day. Check out the buttons in my side bar and join me at these awesome parties!
