It may not be here yet, but that doesn’t mean we cannot quickly add spring to our homes, by bring some flowers indoors – even if they are not real.
What I used:
- Picture frame with an opening for five photos
- DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Everlasting
- DecoArt Metallic Lustre in White Frost
- Paint brush
- Gift wrapping paper
Below you can see the mat and the background of the picture frame.
The How to:
I had originally thought about adding music paper as the backdrop with stars in the front…
In fact, if you visited my Christmas Tree then you would have seen this in the background. It really was a beautiful frame. I had painted it with the chalky type paint and then gone over it with the DecoArt Metallic Lustre in White Frost. So now it is white but it is also shiny and frosty. I think this is great as a neutral frame with just a hint of special because of the shine.
I looked all over the house trying to get ideas but no luck. I thought of using images from calendars but I had nothing appropriate. So I took a trip to the local Dollar Tree and found this pretty floral wrapping paper. Doesn’t that look lovely? Can you imagine it in five frames?
But then I went to the local drugstore and found this wrapping paper. It cost just five dollars! The flowers were a bit bigger and bolder than the previous paper. And the colors? Just a few and in bright hues that sang of spring to me!
Now hop on below and visit my friends who are also going to show you spring crafts.
