So off to our local thrift shop to collect more frames.
I spent a whopping $5.75!
One is octagon shaped and was a whole $2!
The project I wanted to make again is Rustic Layered Frames. Here’s the link to click to see my first layered frame project.
The first layered frames took an afternoon to complete.
This one was a bit longer!
Why?? Because instead of using hot glue I used wood glue, nails and in a couple of places screws.
and aged the frames with tea and vinegar. You can read more about the aging wood technique here.
Then I added the glass and black and white pictures of our Hawaii vacation. Tip, when nailing small nails to the back of a frame, slide the tack hammer along the cardboard backing. Doing this, so far, I’ve not broken any glass. Again, so far!!
Our vacation pictures hanging above the scrap wood mantel.
Oh, to hang straight I add one of those double sided sticky hanging strips to one side.
