A Thrifty Project for Lily

Hi everyone!  I have a great little project to show you today... it didn't cost much and it was done in an afternoon!  Of course, the supplies for this project have been sitting in my house for months.  And I think I moved them from the old house before that... WHATEVS, I HAVE TO DO THINGS IN MY OWN TIME.


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!
