I made a thingy for Lily! Yes, it's a thingy.
I found this great frame at Goodwill for $4.99. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do with it, so I bought some wood letters from Michael's too...
I found some pretty scrapbook paper and measured some to fit behind the frame mat.
I just cut it and taped it to the back of the mat... easy-schmeasy.
And then I painted the letters and the frames. I matched the paint to some of the colors from the scrapbook paper. This was not easy for me because I never know what colors will look good with what. Really, I'm color-challenged.
And once the paint was dry, I put the frame back together and hot glued the letters to the glass.
So, funny story: When I put the whole thing back together, the hanging holes on the back of the frame were upside down. And apparently I'm a moron, because I decided that I needed to remove the letters and hot glue them the other way.
Or, I could just TURN THE GLASS AROUND. Luckily for me, those letters were really stuck on there and in the time it was taking me to try to remove them, I figured out that I was a moron.
I hung it above her door and I just love it! It's so much fun to decorate a girl's room!
I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
