2011 Art


I saw these really cute frame projects at 1825's blog.  I had to try them out. 
While we're taking down all the Christmas stuff around the house, I still would like to leave up the items that represent winter (vs. Christmas). 
This project I thought would be a good one to try out for the New Year.

I started with these supplies:
4 inexpensive black frames from Wal-Mart
Wooden numbers from Hobby Lobby
Scrapbook paper
Glitter


I trimmed the scrapbook paper to fit in the fames in front of the glass.  I then put the frames back together. 

Next up I painted the numbers and let them dry for a few minutes.  Then I sprinkled on glitter. 

Once I got the glitter on just right I glued the numbers to the scrapbook paper in the frames.  And voila! 

Here's a close up of the number. 

Now they sit on a living room shelf!   

Total cost for the project - $12 for the 4 frames and numbers. 
But I plan to reuse the frames over and over as the seasons change.

How cute, Bonnie! I like the numbers. This is something I could do if my daughter would go to the craft store for me. Love it!
