DIY ~ Framed For Any Occasion


Back in December, I told about my trip to Marshall's.  I found the most beautiful 3D reindeer stickers and didn't know what to do with them. All I knew was that they were coming home with me.  Ever since Christmas, my house has been filled with the cutest holiday decorations that took just minutes to make.  What I love most is they are so inexpensive and look like they could have come from a boutique. You can use the same frames for each holiday or special occasion, by simply switching them out and saving them for next year.  Your options are endless.  You can celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and graduations - making those days extra special.  
Here are my latest- Saint Patrick's Day!

All of the materials for this project were purchased at my local Hobby Lobby.  The frames were 50% off and the stickers were 40% off.  The small frames, with the 4 leaf clovers, cost around $3.50 each and the leprechaun cost around $6.  Happy dance! The total cost for all 5 finished pieces,  around $20!  
All you need are frames, matte {scrapbook paper, fabric}, scissors and stickers. 



These make great gifts!

  11. Hi Happy Runner Girl! Thanks for the visit and sweet comments (on your previous comment re: Naan Pizza, I accidentally deleted your comment instead of publishing - sorry about that. I clicked the wrong link in my e-mail, they are right next to each other. :( It's my first time doing that! As for the glass with the frames, I just place them behind the matte. Thanks so much for visiting...I'll be sure to check your blog out! Have a wonderful weekend!
