Yesterday, I was admiring all the fall decor in Hobby Lobby. Fall is my favorite season, and Hobby Lobby is my favorite store. So, this was a really good moment in my day. While staring at some really cute fall frames, I got the urge to buy one. I checked the prices and didn’t want to spend $15 on a frame that was already %40 off. I decided I would make my own! This is what I came up with…
I literally grabbed a piece of wood I already had, three frames from the dollar store, three nails, and my hammer.
I was set to just tack the frames lightly to the piece of wood. In doing this, it would be easy to pull the nails out every year and replace the picture with a more current picture and then nail the nails back in. Right before I started hammering my frames on, I decided I wanted to spray paint them.
I spray painted them a burnt orange, with some paint I already had. I looked at them laid out and decided I liked it and hammered them in place with one thin nail each.
The dollar store frames were perfect for this craft because instead of glass they had a thin clear plastic to cover the picture. This allowed for the frames to be hammered in without the worry of shattering glass. I had plans to go back and either paint, stencil, or use stickers to create a “Welcome to our Pumpkin Patch” message across the frames like this…
BUT, I fell in love with my new framed art and didn’t want to make it too “seasonal”. I liked the rustic/fall look, but it also keeps my frame more versatile incase I want to use it at other times in the year.
It was so easy and quick! You can do it! Thanks so much for all of those that read about our family the other day! I love sharing about things and people who I love!
Thanks for checking in! I hope you are enjoying this change of seasons too and getting a taste for it in your weather and decor!
