This little cherish frame would be perfect for any occasion…say Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day.
This is definitely an easy breezy project using spray mount, and craft and hot glues.
I was lucky and found these two frames at a thrift shop and they both had similar paint. Bonus! No frames to paint!
I removed the cardboard backs and stepped outside with the spray mount. It’s the stuff that reminds me of hairspray…but not as sticky!!! Heh, heh!
Anyway, I sprayed them outside, the smell is unique, and by the time I gathered them up, walked inside and unstuck them from my fingers, they were tacky enough to cover with burlap and a striped fabric.
The burlap was added to the large frame and striped to the smaller one. I simply used the staples that were still in the frames to bend down onto the cardboard backs.
I bought some letters from the scrapbook store that I’ve used more as “rubber stamps” than actually using the letters.
Today I will use the letters! 🙂
My painting tip for paint anything small that moves around and sticks to the paintbrush, hold the item down with a skewer or any pointy tool. I used a creamy white paint for the letters.
I stacked frames holding the small frame with hot glue in the center of the burlap. Added the lettering with white craft glue and weighed things down with a chicken!
Okay, the chicken is iron, sits in the kitchen with a candle inside, but sometimes she has other jobs.
Wish she’d lay an egg! I’m hungry.
I found three wooden heart that I added with hot glue for the final touch.
What do you think of this 15-minute project? Do you think that chicken will ever lay an egg?
