Happy Monday Y’all!
Hope you all had a very nice weekend! I crossed lots off my to-do list and even got to put my feet up and relaxed yesterday! As Christmas approaches, I don’t want to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. I’m trying to get organized and get things done ahead of time so I can enjoy all that December has to offer!
As part of a group of some very fabulous Canadian bloggers, we are all sharing Handmade Christmas gift ideas today. My thoughts instantly turned to some kind of photo display idea. I love picture frames and I think you can never have too many. Today I’d like to show you how I made mine…
I absolutely love how these photo frames turned out and I think they’ll be such cute gifts! They’d be perfect for my mom (who can never have enough pictures of their grandkids), siblings, grandparents and even for teacher gifts!
Here are the materials I used:
– 2 pieces of 2X10 wood (my measurements were 9X6.5 and 9X5.5). You can make these in sizes you want, depending on the size of your picture!
– embellishments of your choice (I chose vintage-style keys from Michaels dollar bins)
– clip of your choice (I actually liked the style of the one with the notepad pictured above, so I just bought it from Michaels dollar bins too and removed the clip)
First, I used Rustoleum black spray paint and painted the wood blocks. I waited until they were dry before sanding them lightly. Sand wherever you want a distressed look. I then used my glue gun to glue a piece of burlap to the wood. Using screws, I attached the little clip to the wood! Such an easy and fun project!
I love the distressed look and the keys! I think I’m going to add some to the second frame as well!
Are you going to be making any gifts this Christmas? I hope you give these a try! Or if you’ve made some homemade gifts already, leave me a comment below please… I’d love to check them out!
Have a very wonderful week, friends! Thanks for coming by!
