I have been out of town most of the week and haven’t had much cooking time. I spent four very COLD days in Minnesota. One day it got down to 30 below with the wind chill factor!!
So today I am going to share another quick and easy craft project that my girls and I worked on over the holiday break. Like I mentioned on Monday my girls and I enjoy making handmade gifts for their friends for Christmas and their birthdays.
For Christmas presents for some of their friends the girls decided to make these cute mod podged picture frames that I saw over at according to Kelly. If you haven’t checked out Kelly’s blog please do! Lots of fun ideas and recipes
We picked up the wooden frames for this cute project at Michael’s. The smaller ones were only $1.00! The larger sizes were a bit more expensive, $5 – 7.00.
Kelly has a great tutorial for them here.
The girl’s personalized the larger frames with the initial of their friend, some ribbon and a few buttons.
The initials are made out of chipboard and can be purchased at Michael’s. We just mod podged the letter onto the back side of the paper (be sure and put the letter face down) and then used an exacto knife to cut around the edge of the letter and then distressed it with an ink pad.
The smaller ones we just covered with paper and then distressed the edges – they were my favorite I think!
They make a quick, inexpensive and darling gift! Wouldn’t you love one? Just follow Kelly’s easy to use tutorial.
