Ive seen it a few times, Especially for Christmas. While I was decorating for Easter I thought a “Spring” banner of picture frames would be really cute. I ran across some cheap wood frames while I was getting supplies to make Easter decorations and knew I needed to do it. It’s another cheap craft (under $10) that looks really nice when finished.
All you need is:
- Different Scrapbook paper
- Picture frames (if unfinished you will need spray paint)
- Spray adhesive
- Push Pins
- Letter cutouts and an exacto blade if you dont have a Cricut cutter
I went through all the paper and picked out which colors I liked for each letter. I used different colors and patterns all in spring colors, to spell out “Spring” with different backgrounds (you cant really go wrong) and used my Cricut cutter to cut the letters out.
I removed the inserts and glass. I left the hanging tags on to hang while painting. I painted all sides (even the back just in case its seen) and all edges (even the inside edges) a left to dry.
Once dry, I took the background paper I chose and cut to fit the frame, then lightly sprayed the back of the letter with the spray adhesive. Then inserted into the frame. I set all the framed letters upside down and about 2-3 inches apart and used to push pins to pin the ribbon to the top two corners of the frame (be careful, some push pins are longer than the thickness of the frame, done push all the way through). Then I made a loop to hang with.
Tip: For only $1 the frames are good to buy many at once, they can be reused for different holidays (repainted as well) to spell different words for holidays, birthdays, seasons, Etc.
