From Pinterest To My Wall~

I’ve been eyeing this project on Pinterest for some time.

And it just so happens that I found some frames on sale while walking through the craft store this weekend.

So, I got out DCWV’s The Burlap Stack and decided it was time to stop looking and start doing.

Sounds like a Lowe’s commercial doesn’t it?

I trimmed the burlap sheets into four 4″ wide sections and used Scor-tape to adhere them to my 8 x 10 base.

I wanted to make sure the sheets lined up as close as possible, so the lines where they met wouldn’t be visible.

Plus, my pictures will cover that area as well.

My frames covered with the burlap paper~

Frame-Blue

I also backed my burlap base with foam board just in case I want to use them as mini bulletin boards.

I wanted to distress the frames a bit, so I used Acrylic Paint Dabbers to apply paint to the edges and decorative portions of the frames.

I then used Beacon 527 Multi-purpose glue to adhere my clips.

Frame-Clip

Wanting to emphasize my picture a bit more I backed it with papers DCWV’s The Family Bound Stack.

Frame-1

I also used paper from that stack and the Cricut Sophisticated cartridge to make my letter A.

Frame-2

I think it matches my wall color perfectly. Love that!

Frame-3

And now instead of looking at a pin on Pinterest I can simply look at my wall.

The best part is I can easily change the pictures any time I want.

Since it was already noted that Travis was missing from both pictures, it looks like I’m going to have to change them soon. Sigh!

I used~

  1. Love these Sara! I might have to make something like this. I like the idea that you can change things out as the mood strikes. I suppose you could put multiple clips in each frame too. The poor hubbys are always the forgotten ones aren’t they? 😉 Fabulous job!

  2. GREAT job!!! Cool frames & I love that you can change the pics & matting any ole’ time you want to (OR when someone discovers that they’ve been left out…whichever comes 1st!)!
