This weekend was the first weekend in forever that I really didn't have something to do... so in honor of Mother's day coming up I made a frame for my mom. I wasn't sure how it would turn out so... I went to Hobby Lobby and just started picking up random things that I thought would look very cute on a frame. Let me just start by saying... going to Hobby Lobby is dangerous... especially without a game plan. =)
The few things I picked up where scrapbook paper, wooden frames (which are only about $3), a jewelry piece,, wooden letterings and ribbon.
My inspiration cam from the classic faded blue print.
I wanted to give the picture frame a homie, vintage, down to earth feel.
It is a pretty easy and fun project. I just used sandpaper to sand the edges of the frame and the paper to give it an old feel. Thanks to my friend Maggie we sponged the letters with a gold/bronze color to match the accent. =)
For a semi broke college student; I think this came out perfect!
Wooden frame: $3.00
Jewelry accent: $4.00
Total = $11.00 ( with plenty of left overs to make another frame)
So what we learned here: Hobby Lobby inspires some great ideas, you don't have to spend a fortune to get a cute frame, and well creativity doesn't have to be expensive...
