Framed "Create" Sign

Slowly, verrrry slowly, I'm trying to make my craft space cute. I just get so distracted by other projects. Or my children. Or Hunger Games. 

But yesterday I actually made something for my craft space and I think it's super cute!

I started out with a frame from Wal-Mart. It was $1.50 and has no back or glass. I was okay with that.


Then I used my glue gun to make a design along the front of the frame.


Then I spray painted the whole frame. That's how I got a fun little design on the frame.


Then I used some burlap and through freezer paper stenciling, stenciled "create" onto the burlap. I added a couple of bows for good measure and there ya have!


I just hot glued the burlap to the back of the frame. I love the colors!

  10. I thought that was glue gun made when I saw your featured post! That's very crafty of you, instead of using puffy paint, and adds the perfect touch! This also reminds me that I REALLY need to learn how to do the freezer paper transfer technique.
