Howdy Hey everybody. Today I am making a cheap, easy Christmas Decoration. I spent Tuesday morning wandering around Joanne's Fabrics drooling over & on all kinds of things. (actually I only spent an hour & a half & I did drool slightly) I got some fabric paints, big pack of felt for $3.00, some holiday type stickers for mega cheap, a piece of scrapbooking paper for a project down the road, ( uh I will be making the project here not down the road, shoulda said later on.....oh well!). I got some goodies & I only spent like $10.00 all total. So as I dumped my bag out on the counter I started to try to figure out.....just what the hell am I gonna do with this stuff? First up on the cue : the stickers.
I head to the garage & grab a frame I have been saving for something. Like maybe a picture or something. This one is being used for a something. Now when I opened the frame I realized to my horror that there was not glass in this frame at all but some clear plastic piece that was attached to the frame itself & could not be removed. ( it could but I didn't want to have to cut it out & ruin it)
I remove the paper "photo" of some 1800's chick I do not know from the frame & I stuffed it in the front so my "plastic" glass would not get messed up.
I sprayed it with some Kilz satin finish spray paint in Brown Sugar ( one of the paints that were here when we moved in. It was nice of the Craft Fairy to leave some things for me as a moving in gift dontcha think?)
Couple a three coats & it was ready to go. After it dried of course.
I had enough left over scrapbook paper to cut into a funky oval shape that fit my frame perfectly!
Cute little background with snowflakes.
Oh my no! It is snowing so hard in the frame now it has caused a White Out! Oh...thats just my over eager camera flash. Sorry. I chose a couple of the stickers I got from Joanne's. The snowman sticker came 12 in a bag for a buck. The candy cane was mixed with some trees & stars & other candy canes, 24 in a bag for a buck.
And here you have it my lovely readers. The Snowman has been framed!
What do you think? Should I paint the fancy stuff a contrasting color, add a sprig of greenery to the top or just leave it alone?
(Cue cliff hanger music)
Stay tuned to find out the fate of our framed snowman friend.
I am thankful for my never ending supply of non-existing music on cue.
